Re: Scientific Anglers System 4 Reels

Out of curiosity... are they actually the same as CLA reels? By which I mean, do CLA spare spools work with the SA system 4?

Re: What Did You Buy Today?

I picked up my 6' 3wt Cabela's Prime from the local retail store.

Re: Rod Carriers

I pretty much just use this for transporting rigged rods from spot to spot, rigged with some shock cord to keep everything in place. It unscrews in the middle for easier storage.

Re: Wading Boot Color

I'm surprised that this hasn't really come up yet.

But, have you tried these on with waders yet? If you're wet wading, obviously give it a shot. But don't expect that if these are boots you wear...

Re: Today! Cabelas Prime 50% off

Yeah, that 8wt just popped up today.

I just ordered the 3wt, figuring... well, I don't have a 3wt. I have a 2wt Redington CT, 3 4wts and 2 5wts, also 3 reels rigged with 4wt lines. And since it...

Re: 6'4" or 7'1" rod??

I'm not questioning the efficacy of the technique, nor the laws of physics. Merely the logistics of getting a rigged 9' rod streamside under all that overgrowth.

I use the B&A cast fairly...

Re: 6'4" or 7'1" rod??

I don't know, I'm not sure how a 9' rod makes fishing those tiny streams under canopies of trees an easier. You still have to get that rod through the trees, and under the boughs to make bow and...

Re: Today! Cabelas Prime 50% off

Re: Orvis Battenkill III drag info

I have the II, and I use it on my Redington CT 2wt, so I'm not overly worried about having a ton of stopping power.

The drag adjustment is a rectangular washer with an offset hole drilled in it. ...
