Re: Fitting the gap

I would say go with the 5 wieght (if it was me) why? B/c for your dedicated dry fly needs and small stream fishing the circa will be amazing. For your your streamer, tandem nymph rigs & spilt shot...

Re: 9' 6wt for NC/TN smallmouth?

For a 9' 6wieght I'm torn between Nexus, streamdance glx and NRX. Haven't tried the nexus yet though and it looks like a great deal, beautiful craftsmanship for the price too.

Re: 9' 6wt for NC/TN smallmouth?

I too am interested in the nexus as a 9' 6wieght, can you compare the casting stroke and flex to another rod series? I've heard it has a similar action to the z-axis.

Another great 6wieght is the...

Re: Orvis H2 tip-and-mid Flex

S&S I couldn't agree more. As you may know I am personally more a fan of all rounders than specialized rods, however I agree that it puts the company and the potential consumer at a disadvantage....

Re: Orvis H2 tip-and-mid Flex

The flex rating designation of Orvis rods was a wonderful thing, this issue came up a lot at managers meetings when I worked for the company: wether or not to do away with printing the numbers on the...

Re: 7 weight rod choice.

A 10' 7wt. Is a nice setup for steelhead, though it would not be a good transition into spey casting techniques, for that you would need a double hander spey or switch. Yes, you can single hand spey...

Re: You do not pick the fly rod, the fly rod picks you!

Interesting article, these are my thoughts; Though I agree with some concepts in the article, such as, Making the rod choice yourself, instead of letting shop owners sell you on one. I don't agree...

Re: Douglas fly rods

S&S I am hoping the DXF is a solid contender for a mid priced rod, the market needs a "game changer" price to performance ratio, the biggest complaint I hear from clients is fly-rod prices. Its nice...

Re: 4 weight 8' 6" -- Winston GVX or other?

Haha I would be willing to bet 6 wieght bIIIx or GVX would fit that bill of "strong 5" one piece of information that supports this theory is George cook's deflection charts for his rod shootouts. You...

Re: Orvis Recon and H2 tests vs Sage Accel and One

The recon is a nice all around fly rod blank, not neccessarily an improvement over the access rod it replaced. The H2 is certainly a high performance rod as well, the sweethearts in the bunch for the...

Re: 4 weight 8' 6" -- Winston GVX or other?

But is the 690 GVX or BIIIX really a good all around 6? My understanding is that they're more like strong 5's, when buying a 6 I want to be able to chuck large streamers in windy conditions, can the...

Re: Loomis NRX

S&S looking back on it the NRX #5 was an amazing rod, not my speed at the time. I think you should revisit it, seems like your cup of tea. I should say, now, the NRX 5 would be the perfect Delaware...

Re: Loomis NRX

NRX in a light line model sounds amazing, I really enjoyed the 9' 4weight, not so much the #5 tho. I imagine a 3wt. NRX would be something special.

I'd have to agree with S&S on this one. As far...

Re: Spey/switch info overload

You could certainly go either way on this. Switch or spey. I personally fish both spey and switch. Just for a reference point. I fish a 12'6" 5wieght spey rod in rivers the same size 30-60ft across,...

Re: Classic Sages?

I'd have to nominate the Sage 590 SP in a 2 piece. To me this rod screams classic sage "all rounder". In the Spey world the 7136 brownie, and the 7136 z-axis will surely be inducted into the hall of...

Re: New SAGE rod, opinions wanted
