Re: Hey. I started a Blog. Now what?

The most important thing is to post regularly. In time, like-minded individuals will find your blog. It may take longer than you think before that happens.

Got off my duck for 2015

I had my first kid on October 2, last year. He's doing great; he's really good at being a baby, and being a father is awesome. I'd say that it's cut into my fishing time, but I have to admit that I...

Re: 4 weight 8' 6" -- Winston GVX or other?

I have no experience with the GVX line, but I'm sitting on the sidelines hoping that your concern is valid. Wouldn't it be amazing if a modern rod company made a graphite rod that behaved like a...

Re: Classic Sages?

Surely some Z-axis models will achieve "classic" status. I'd nominate the 9' 6wt and the 10' 4wt but recognize that others may have different opinions.

I also love my 7'6" 3wt ZXL. I don't know...

Re: 3wt short stick

People seldom mention David and Margot Redington down at South Fork Rod Company, but their black rods are rolled by Margot and trimmed and ferruled by David in Stuart, FL.

Re: Sage xi3 5 weight trout rod?
