Re: PE backing - Anyone use it?

Curious where it says how many strands? Also no colors even in the stuff you recommend? Thanks for the website, figured others made the same stuff Hatch sells.

Question PE backing - Anyone use it?

Re: Bozeman reels

At 500 large I think they'll have a hard time selling reels. This puts it equal to a Hatch with the Hatch being a known quantity.

Re: Fly Rod question: what types was used in the river runs through it?

While I have never met either Borger, I did see Gary put on a brief casting demo at a fly fishing show in Maryland maybe 10 years ago. Indoors in a casting pool maybe 30' in length, he didn't use a...

Decided to put my Hatch 4+ up for sale

It's a hard call on my part, but in the end I want a bit more backing. I hate it because this is an amazing reel. Machining is a marvel.

Re: Hatch 4 Plus Finatic...My put it up for sale, then again...

True, I've thought about that, but really don't need 2 spools & gel spun costs a fraction of the price. Basically I keep the reel and load it with gel spun or sell it and get a different reel.

Re: Hatch 4 Plus Finatic...My put it up for sale, then again...
