Re: Sage bass rod

The line is the key indeed. However, the BS is part of why fly fishing as a whole is mystifying to newcomers.

These rods are great for their intended purposes, but that ten letter word ...

Re: Sage bass rod

I couldn't agree more. The price isn't bad, however, the advertising is misleading.

Also, I am an old 24 year old. Anyone see the movie Jack? That's me...I look like I am 96.

Re: Sage bass rod

The Scott is twice the price however, and Scott has effectively priced themselves out of the market. The Redington is a nice rod, but the Ross is the best for the price in this category of rods. Sage...

Re: Sage bass rod

I doubt that Sage did their homework. They did lie, and the rods are not legal for tournament use in any BASS sanctioned tournament, which is how it is written on the rods. I have a hard time seeing...

Re: Sage bass rod

Why did they name them BASS, rather then Bass? In all capitals it hints at the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society.

As far as I know, Spey lines are measured in grains for the most part, and have only...

Re: Sage bass rod

Alan, the two handers have a LONG tradition over in Europe chasing salmon and trout. Nothing wrong with that. The issue I have with these short thundersticks being labeled by Sage for tournament use,...

Re: Sage bass rod

You and I finally agree. There have been short heavy weight rods for decades, going all the way back to cane rods made about 7' 6/7wt, up to the Fenwick glass rods. Now, for Sage to claim these fall...

Sage bass rod

Also, the Bluegill is a heavy 8wt line, Smallmouth is a 10wt line, and Largemouth is an 11wt line. Check the grain weights on them.

Here is an email from Chuck Harbin of B.A.S.S. that was sent to...

Re: Your biggest fish on a fly?

My largest was a freshwater drum from our local spillway. We had low water, and I was really fishing for crappie, but I laid a cast with a #10 Chili Pepper (spezio's name), essentially a burnt orange...

Re: Bluegill fishing rigs

I use an Orvis BBS I on my 7'6" Cabela's LST 2wt. It does everything well, including cast weighted flies.

Re: light weight fly rods

I recommend the 8'6" 3wt Launch, but I hope you plan to catch a whole lot of gills on it!

Re: light weight fly rods

You really like the Diamondglass 3wt? I would love to go fish in Japan, and will before I pass on, but it will probably be with plastic. I might even take a 6'9" 1wt TFO Finesse...or a 6'6" 2wt, or...

Re: 2 wt fly line

Umm...Clear Creek is a thicker diameter line than Sylk, as the Sylk is designed for rods with smaller guides and the Sylk is not available in WF2F or WF1F, but thanks for the information...

Re: light weight fly rods

I have a Cabela's LST 7'6" 2wt that I have caught trout to 18" on since I bought it, and this rod is flawless. I cannot think of one thing besides the cork that I would change. The action suits me,...

Re: Let me tell you about my Thingy-ma-bobber

Thingamabobbers are so sensitive, they even surpass my old foam stickon indicators (well, half of one). I am so grateful I took the chance on these, and I only use the 1/2" size for what I fish with...

Re: Lamson Konic vs Velocity Hard Alox

I bought a Velocity Hard Alox model 1 for $129 at Cabela's and LOVE it! It is a definite improvement over the Konic!

Re: Galvan Reels

I understand that, but with a Lamson Conical Drag reel, you just have to make darn sure that the spool is firmly seated against the frame.

Re: Galvan Reels

The way that water gets into the drag on the Lamsons is that the shaft is sealed with O-rings, and requires a pretty good push to lock into place. If there is a gap, water can get in.

That being...
