Re: Two of the same rod ?

Not identical, but I purchased a lightly used 4 piece 6wt Z-Axis already owning a 2 piece that I love. The 4 piece swings much heavier and the action seems stiffer to me but the 2 piece has many...

Re: Bull Trout

Here is a couple that work for my young fellow. I think pretty much anything big with some action will trigger a strike.

Re: Echo Edge 480-4. A brief review

Thanks for the review Mike.

I was completely smitten by an Echo3 rod in 3wt that I got a chance to try. I was not really in the market for a 3wt so asked the shop owner to bring in a 9ft 5wt. It...

Re: Best advice from fly forum members

Sweet and Salt's detailed explanations of fly line tapers and effects have been most beneficial to me. I was a "half line heavy" junkie before reading his posts and had just assumed my poor casting...

Re: A Tip for New Guys on the Long Follow

They are super spooky this time of year but generally work back into feeding mode after 30 minutes or so. They often make a big circle back and around checking for fishermen. I have watched them for...

A Tip for New Guys on the Long Follow

I guess this kind of relates to the deep pool thread but comes into play very often on well fished waters. Nearly everyone knows that a riffle like pictured below is a great place for a Brown to hide...

Re: Catch and Release...

Against my better judgement, I am going to weigh in on this topic of photographs.

The use of the term "hero shot" is insulting, judgemental and shows a complete lack of understanding as to why...

Re: A Customer Service Tale....

I was just about to pull the trigger on a Streamflex but am reconsidering after reading this. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that my Zenith and Ultra lite reels never need service or replacement....

Re: Sage ACCEL

What we have here is 3 pages of what marketing professionals call a buzz. It is exactly what Sage would want and in no way passes judgement on the product.

Good, bad or indifferent you want...

Re: Sage ACCEL

With all due respect, this is the "fly rod" section.

"Getting all excited" as you put it, is truly the ultimate goal. If a new piece of equipment adds to that excitement, skill level is a moot...

Re: Sage ACCEL

I believe mine is the post you speak of. I would like to add that I ordered a Loop Opti-Stream to try out and price was a major consideration in this decision. I believe from the reviews that the...

Re: Sage ACCEL

I think that the big boys should be more concerned about competing with the Korean rods with their top tier gear. Expert casters aside, these Korean rods are just more fun to fish and deliver more...

Re: Brown Trout Pics

Local big river Brown I was lucky enough to encounter on a short evening trip.
These guys are hard to hook with all the pressure this system gets but put on a real show. The current is strong making...

Re: Need some advice on some new line

I have been experimenting with a few different 5wt lines lately and the SA Mastery Textured Trout is by far my favorite and the Mastery Trout Taper is a close second.

The textured line slides...

Re: July Caption Competition-Sponsored by Allen Fly Fishing

The latest release from Rob Ford Campaign Headquarters suggests "the monkey is off his back" and that this is clearly a "one horse race" for the top job in Toronto. Ontario voters are still a little...

Re: Redington Customer Service

I think what ruins the Link (at least for me) is the balance and swing weight. It is like they made extra effort to add tip heavy. The action of the rod is not bad and it does have a nicer flexing...

Re: Sage ACCEL

As a sales and marketing guy, I find the $600 price point an interesting position and a mistake IMO.

I think it would be safe to say that anyone that can afford a $600 rod can afford pretty much...

Re: Brown Trout Pics

I switched to 5x for the second one above but the first one was the bigger fish.

I have come to love the 8'6" 5wt Zenith and Ultralite DD combo. It protects tippet almost as well as my 4wt ZXL and...

Re: Brown Trout Pics

Highlight of a nice day on the water. I didn't think I was going to get this guy to the net on 6x tippet so snapped a couple of him on the way in. Luckily he decided to allow me to bring him to the...

Rivers are finally starting to clear up nicely and the Browns are starting to get into their summer routine. Too early for hoppers here but I figured someone has to eat the first one :).

An Evening with the Drakes (pic heavy)

Beautiful evening on the water. Hot and too sunny to begin with but you could tell a hatch was going to come off.
