Re: 6wt freshwater to a saltwater setup???

You can certainly use your 6 wt, as noted above, but don't feel like you have to spend $300 to have a useable 8 wt rig if you want one. This 8 wt

Re: What is important to you when buying gear?

Value, defined as (performance+reliability) / price.

So far the best value I've found yet was the Allen Kraken reel I got in exchange for a picture caption.

Re: Retro outfit

A bit longer, I think. I believe that the "Fullflex A" rods were the ones with the blanks made by Orvis. That line was offered from 1975 through 1987.

There's a good listing of Orvis fiberglass...

Re: Cabela's Wind River

It's a very good $30 reel, and an outstanding $20 reel. Watch for it to go on sale. I use one with my 9-wt bass rod and I'm very pleased with it.

Re: Did I order wrong ?

The fish haven't changed very much in their eating habits since 1966. Sure, today they wear the latest clothes and drive modern vehicles, but a fly pattern that was appetizing in the '60s will be...

Re: What's your location

If you pissed off as many people as I do, you'd be a little vague about your location, too.
