Re: Radian 2H

I cast the 15' 10wt on a pond this weekend. It handled an SA Spey distance 8/9 without trouble. It wanted much more, but we had no other lines to try. Remarkably light. Did not feel like you had a...

Re: Simms G3s or Rio Gallegos

I'd avoid the zipper whether you go Simms or Patagonia. After two seasons with a zipper it was evident it wasn't worth the extra expense or potential problem area. I currently have about 20 fishing...

Dean, If you could post a video that would be very helpful, but if you're getting too much line stick you can try a couple things:

Thanks. Nope, 3 sec @f16, no filters. Wasn't very bright that morning.

Re: Is it the pattern or the presentation??

Presentation is paramount, but with that said, I believe the way the fly presents itself can be equally important (this is in reference to swinging for steelhead, particularly winter fish). I catch...

Re: Resolutions. Stupid things I am going to quit doing this year...

Jesus H,....I'm sorry. Really really wasn't trying to insinuate that or insult anyone. I've been down that road and all I was saying is I now enjoy exploring more water rather than letting a run get...

Re: Resolutions. Stupid things I am going to quit doing this year...

My desire to prod a fish into biting has just waned. I have the most fun with aggressive fish, those fish that don't need excessive coaxing to come out and play. Maybe it's a respect thing. A two-way...

Re: Resolutions. Stupid things I am going to quit doing this year...

I'm going to stop swinging through a run 2-3 times. Swing through, have confidence, move on to new water no matter what the results were.

Re: History/Quality of Thomas & Thomas rods

My Helix is the most pleasurable casting piece of graphite I own, and the best looking.

Re: Opinion on chinese or korean built rods?

Leftist beliefs? That's a first.

Again, I wasn't taking shots at anyone's skill. Put a 100ft belly on one of my rod's and it's not going to perform in my hands like will in a better caster's...

Re: Opinion on chinese or korean built rods?

No, I don't realize who I'm talking to. I just know that any caster worth his salt wouldn't try to claim that all rods rolled up in asia are sub par unless they 1) aren't really able to distinguish a...

Re: Opinion on chinese or korean built rods?

It's not personal. Every caster/fisher has a different level of experience. It's not a knock. Those with experience know it matters not what country the graphite lay-up process was done.

Re: Opinion on chinese or korean built rods?

You probably haven't used a Loop, Vision, Bruce & Walker, or Guideline blank then. Or you have and your skills don't allow you get the top notch performance that they are capable of.

Re: Switch reel question?

If it's for freshwater, all a drag does is give the potential for failure. You don't need it unless you're in the salt. Get a g&p reel.
