Re: Sage 4210 for salt?

The 4210 will work well. It's sealed, etc.

Check out our 8-weight shootout (http://www.tridentflyfishing.com/blog/2013-8-weight-wt-challenge-fly-reel-review) for more info!

Re: scott 10' 4wt or 5wt

Given your description, I wouldn't recommend a 10' rod at all. a 10' rod will be tailored to bigger water and nymphing, not throwing small dries. I'd be looking at an 8'6" 4wt

Re: New fly rods?

Major brands do almost every release in July at iCast. I'd expect Sage to not have a major update this year... maybe the TXL? Winston has a much longer development cycle, so I wouldn't expect a Boron...

Re: NRX & S4s Comparison

clogrennane - both great rods, and you can't really go wrong either way. If I were going for a dedicated Bonefish rod, I'd probably go S4s as it feels a little lighter and does 30-60' really, really,...

Re: 2 Rods, 4 Fish, & 1 Reel

If anything, the NV 9/10 would be too light for the switch.

for the 7 plus, you can fit a lot of backing on a LA... I personally fish mine with PowerPro for extra capacity. I'm not sure if you...

Re: 2 Rods, 4 Fish, & 1 Reel

Mike - here's my opinion:

One Spool - NVG 9/10: It'll fit everything well. 8/9 will be tight with a Skagit setup.

Two Spools Hatch 7+: Use a LA for the salt and a MA for the switch. Overall...

Re: Hatch 7 plus balance on NRX 9ft 8 wt

Mike - you're absolutely right. The NVG 8 is a full ounce lighter than the Hatch. The NRX is a rather heavy rod, I'd personally go with the slightly heavier reel on this one.

Berks - I fish the...

Dean - thanks for the comments. I thought I'd address your comments on retrieval rate, since I had the very same thought. Namely, does two inches matter?

Re: 9' 4wt suggestions?

Assuming you're keeping your 9' 5, I'd actually recommend getting an 8'6" 4-wt instead of a 9. Generally speaking, these rods are pretty different from the 9' 4's and are much lighter in feel.

I...

Re: Anyone own an 8 wt Sage Motive?

If you have a Predator and don't like it, I don't think you'll like the Motive. My 2 cents.

Re: Sage Circa for rod #2?

Re: Line for NRX-LP 4wt?

Any standard 4wt line will work well on that rod. For dry flies, I'd look at the Rio Trout LT. If you prefer a slower rod, you could go up a half size to a GPX.
