Re: Any tips on the Lake Fork of the Gunnison?

Hopper-droppers should work well, not sure of the flows right now but stop by and see Tony and Kay at The Sportsman in Lake City, great folks and they hire great guides. They will give you great...

Re: Letter from Orvis

I wish the guys here in our Orvis shop were the same way, unfortunately they promoted some guy to manager who doesn't really have a clue... Had great experiences at other locations though, and used...

Re: Hardy Zenith rods

The 10' 4 wt is my new favorite rod, got it on steepandcheap.com for $300. It was an impulse buy based on reviews, but I knew I could get my money back on the secondary market if I didn't like it.

Re: Patagonia Stealth Atom Sling Pack for sale

A friend urged me to give it another shot, so I'm going to try for now. I'm not optimistic, but he persisted and I caved, agreeing to one more trip with it.

Re: Sage Rod Chart Begs the debate - which is best?

I have now or have owned several different models for trout (RPL, LL, SP, XP, Z-Axis, 99) and fished others (VXP, ONE, SP+), and IMHO the Z-Axis is the one that does it all very well. I bought it...

Patagonia Stealth Atom Sling Pack for sale

Well, as it turns out, I'm not a sling pack guy. Used it for two days and switched back to my stealth hip pack. Sling has slightly more room (listed as same, though I think the sling is better...

Re: TFO BVK 8 ft 3 wt, and the conversion kit

Well, I finally went for it... Don't have the conversion kit yet, but may get it soon... Have had good luck with Rio Gold lines lately, anyone try it on this rod? Any suggestions?

Re: Sage 590 SP

It's up on the big auction site, still 3 days plus on the auction.

I did set a reserve price that hasn't been met yet, but that's not surprising with this much time left.

Holler at me there...

Re: tfo bvk vs. tfo mangrove

As I understand it, the BVK and Mangrove actually use the same exact blank, tapers, etc. Mangrove has the TiCR coating which makes it tougher to break and tougher in the butt.

BVK's will break...

Sage 590 SP

Bought a new rod, so it was either this or my 4711 that had to stay on as my dry fly rod for small-medium rivers... Can't give up the LL.

This is a custom rod, but think it was made from a kit......

Re: Looking to add another rod...

I would not necessarily skip the 4 wt either. I have a Sage 4711 LL and it's crazily different from my 5 wt XP or 5 wt z axis. While I have a 2wt LL for the smallest creeks, etc. I find that my...

Re: Best rod for throwing articulated streamers?

My Sage XP 590 is my go-to streamer rod, throw some with my TFO BVK 7wt when they're really big, but would love to have a 691 or 790 XP. Would love the chance to fish a Bank Robber too, I'll bet...

Re: Best TFO Rod for trout (5 WT)

The Mangrove is awesome, but wouldn't be my choice for trout... I would go with the BVK if you like a fairly fast rod. The Mangrove is basically the same blank, same tapers, but is stiffer and...

Agreed, some days may sting for a bit but every one of them teaches me something new. One of my most memorable days was when I first moved to Vail in '03 and set out to conquer Gore Creek. I...

Re: Need some reviews tfo bvk or tfo large larbor

Re: Split shot or wrap around?

I use non-toxic shot, keep it in all sizes, but think I'm going back to tungsten putty... I feel like it gets hung up less, and when you pull it, it is malleable enough to elongate along your line,...

Re: Wow Patagonia (new Atom Stealth pack on the way)

I was really pumped about getting one for Christmas, too. In practice, the sling happens to sit right on the adjustment for my wader strap, not as comfortable as I'd hoped... Killer pack though

Steepandcheap is about to have these as a featured deal for $300, insane price. Not sure which models yet, but the deal will be up for 15 minutes very shortly!!!
