Re: NRX Satisfaction

10' 9 weight. Outstanding single hand salmon and steelhead rod. Simply outstanding. I just wish I could fish it more. One of the smoothest casting rods I've ever owned.

Re: 6 wt. for lake erie steelhead

A good solid 6 weight will work with a good quality reel and decent tippet size - I would use 3x as the smallest. 4x if you will have plenty of room to run after the fish will also work but there is...

Re: Why buy high end?

Because I want to. Same reason I drive a 400 hp BMW.

Re: Abel Sealed Drag still waiting

I don't blame you. I'd be unhappy too. That's a long delay.

Re: South Platte Closed

I heard 4 people died in water related accidents this weekend. One was a tuber on the South Platte, one was in the Arkansas, I don't know about the other two. One guy died in his waders on Boulder...

Re: South Platte Closed

The Western Slope definitely had less snowpack. What we've had is a well above average rainfall in May. It rained every day in May with the exception of 3 days (I think it was 3). All day rains...

Re: Abel Sealed Drag

Outstanding. I can't tell you how much I want one of these and will own one. I sure as heck don't need one since I just went nuts and bought a few more Super N series reels and another classic...

Re: Loomis NRX Trout

I have only a 9 weight NRX but it is one of the best casting fly rods I've ever held. Wouldn't mind adding another I just don't really "need"one in any line weight.

Re: Abel reel choice

Im not surprised that the 6N felt light on that stick. I use a solid back 6N on my 690-4 Sage ONE. Ideal.

Re: Rod selection for fishing Colorado

I've landed many fish on 6x here with a 5 weight. You need the light tippet often. A good reel makes a big difference. Small streams, I'd use a shorter rod. The F&F fits the bill. You'll be fine.

I'm a cigar guy and over the past 10+ years have amassed a collection of around 2,000 sticks. I have smoked them on the stream at times, but usually only my less quality sticks. There is too much...
