Re: NRX LP 5 weight - opinions?

For what it's worth, I lawn cast the NRX LP side-by-side with the Scott Radian in the 905. Both were fantastic but I ended up with the Radian and couldn't have been happier once I got it on the...

Re: looking for a new 5 wt. rod.

I've been a longtime Winston fan but I recently picked up the Radian 905. I love that rod. Great in close and effortless out longer. Additionally, it's a rod which has made me a better mender,...

Tipping a Casting Instructor

For 2015, I've resolved to work on my casting. I'm lining up a casting lesson with a Master Casting Instructor. What is the standard/norm for tipping casting instructors? Thanks,
