Re: Sage ESN 11' 3wt reel choices?

It takes about 6.5 oz of reel, backing, and line. You can use any reel as long as you add some lead-core (I use 14lb Cabela's) under the backing.

Re: Remove butt cap for adding weight.

This is exactly what I do to balance my outfits. I use 14 lb Cabela's lead core; it almost matches the diameter of my backing.
I was contemplating the "weight in the but" while having a custom rod...

Re: Tungsten Thread

It is actually the other way around: tungsten is about 1 1/2 times heavier than lead. I used up one spool on smaller sized nymphs as weight, but i don't use it for tying. It is good but expensive (at...

Re: Am I doing this right?

If you go for the fancy guides, handle, reel seat,etc. it might cost you more than a Sage built rod. I will have similar quality components as Sage uses, except I picked them to my liking. And I do...

Re: Gold/GPX Any Difference ?

Try a GPX in DT version...;)
I don't like Rio Gold. You have to have a rod that can handle it (most of the times under rated and extra fast)
On the other hand, I rarely fish further that 40ft. I...

Re: Euro nymphing/tight line nymphing line???

Why do you need a fly line?

When I use a setup with fly line (very rarely), I use Rio's nymphing line. Most of the times I don't have a fly line on the reel. I just tie about 100 yards of .35 soft...

Re: What to use to clean cork?

In my opinion, Mr Clean's Magic Eraser is the best; just wet it and scrub gently. In 15 seconds you are done!
