Re: NRX Satisfaction

Agreed, Cochise. Don't know the reason for the OP's preface to his question. Maybe he is trying to find the dogs in the series.

Re: Sage Dominion #8 and Hardy Swift Meet The King Salmon Chalenge;

Good writeup with great pictures, Ard. That is a nice looking reel. I've heard good things from other people about the Sage reels. And that one looks like it has a good drag knob as well.

Re: The rude Alaskans

All fly fishermen should carry one stout spinning rod W/ super fast retrieve reel loaded with 120LB spectra tied to a 1 oz Kastmaster. You no doubt already have a sharp knife for quickly cutting off...

I would say the best thing is to choose a rod which will likely best suit the conditions you plan on fishing in the most.



Your rod selection will dictate your basic stroke, and your style...

Re: Sage TCX 990

I"m not a good one to ask about that because I have never overliined any rods, though I underline quite a few. But the 9wt tcx would be as good a candidate for overlining as any. It has plenty of...

Re: Sage TCX 990

I have a Rio bonefish on my 9wt tcx. It is a 50' head and may be too long if fishing the surf at low tide.

Re: Why buy high end?

Re: Sage and rio to sell direct

Exactly.






Exactly. And as far as I know, from my local fly shop, Sage already has that policy in force with respect to their current models.

The only difference is that they are...

The thickened section that normally extends upward from the handle on most rods,...

Re: Why buy high end?

I buy whatever "end" suits my purposes and don't "upgrade" until there is a distinctly noticeably difference between what I have and the upgrade.

You are talking about two different "feels".

For instance, I loaded a custom rod with a 4 wt line line and took it out to play with it. That rod was an estimated 21 wt rod by its maker. It is...
