Re: Winston WT Series Rod - Opinions?

Re: How hard is it to make a fly rod?

Re: Simms Waders

There are a lot of advantages to separate boots:

Re: Ross Canyon (Non-BG version)

They came out well before the ryhthm... the Canyon was replaced by the Evo, I have owned several, still have two 3's and 6 spools. They are IMO one of the best reels Ross has made... they perform,...

Agree with both above... roll or spey casting forms (one handed) sound like a good solution to me.

Re: 10' rod vs 9' rod... I need some rod guru help
