Re: Aleka, reviews anyone?

Just to see what it was like, I purchased an A8 9ft 5wt a year or so ago. It is a nice looking rod that is pretty quick -- not unlike a Zaxis. I paid around $125.00 for it and think it was certainly...

Re: Reel for 5wt Winston

I really like my Bauer CFX3 for my Winston B2X 5wt 9ft. It is so smooth and has a retro sort of look that I like. I am ordering the #2 for my Sage ZXL which should be a good fit.

Re: Beginner Rod & Reel Outfit

The Redington Crosswater 5 or 6 combo is a good deal for a beginner. I got one years ago and still enjoy using it.

Re: Dan Craft GXT 9ft 5wt

I will get a picture up. Until then, the blank is graphite grey. I wrapped it simply with red thread which, when covered with prokote, came out a red wine or claret color.

Re: Redington Rod opinion

I got into fly fishing rather late in life about 15 years ago. I basically learned to cast with a Crosswater 6wt 9ft and a matching graphite reel. I have many other rods now but the old Reddington...

Re: Difference between Loomis NRX Green or Blue?

Loomis went with green paint and wrappings because some people did not like the plain graphite and bright blue wraps. I think it is purely cosmetic marketing decision.
