Re: Hardy Zenith 6 wt. and weighted flies

I had the SW version of the Zenith 6(the Proaxis). It thru Bass bugs, Clousers, big leaches, even a 250 grain head with no issues. I would suggest you keep the fly lines closer to true to size with...

Re: Hardy Zenith 6 wt. or TFO BVK 7 wt.?

Very True!

Much like there is no such thing as an all-around golf club. The qualities that make a rod a great dry fly rod for #20's really put you in 4 weight territory, Five at the max. Good...

Re: Ultra Violet Flies?

I use to rep Spirit River. My take is not that UV works because it's "more natural" or necessarily more visible (it may be in certain low light situations). I think it's more successful because it's...

Re: Hardy Marquis Salmon 1 question

I've had no problem handling big fresh Silvers in AK in a swollen river with lots of current with an 11 1/2-7 weight with #1 Salmon. My buddy uses one on MI Kings and it does a great job. In my mind...

Re: Bauer RX

The RX is a bit heavier duty than the Rogue and I believe (as I remember) it has a more robust spool release than the Rogue. I do agree that the Rogue is enough, I love mine. The RX was designed with...

Re: Great Lakes Salmon and Steelhead

You know Steelhead in the Lake MI go back to a few years before Brown trout. Look it up. I've yet to hear a Flyfisherman worth his salt call Brown Trout an Invasive species. I love chasing both,...

Re: Reels

I suspect you would have two issues. 1) Line capacity, Most centerpin reels hold about 250-300 yards of 10 pound mono, I doubt they would hold a four weight switch line with any backing. 2) As you...

Re: Cortland Intermediate and Sinking lines

No it's a weight forward, not an aggressive one by todays standards, but you should feel a transition on it.

Re: Cortland Intermediate and Sinking lines

Re: 3wt Small Creek Rod

Re: Giving up on mono tippet?

First, there is no doubt in my mind that in the MW clear waters trout see line when subsurface feeding. I've witnessed both King Salmon and Steelhead move out of the way of flys presented on 6 pound...

Re: PVC vs Polyurethane

You're right it should be PE instead of PTE. Liquid Crystal was indeed made in house as of May (the end of my relationship with Cortland). At the time the only flyline not made in House was Fairplay...

Re: 7wt streamer rod

I'm with you on the soft tip of the Bank Robber it is also about a size and a half underrated. I casted one at a show with a rep one day, and he claimed that the line SA made for it was two sizes...

Re: 7wt streamer rod

I have casted the Clutch 8 and I liked it, but it's a more conventional "fast" rod, in that it performs best a bit overlinnned. There 10 weight has been getting rave reviews around here for Musky. I...

Re: 7wt streamer rod

I had the Hardy Proaxis 9-6 wt and it killed for large trout streamers with a 200 grain head. I can't imagine how good the 7 would be for the same application. And the durability blew my mind.

Re: PVC vs Polyurethane

Polyurethane is great stuff, it has two issues, it is temp sensitive and doesn't like cold water although each new generation seems to be better. Liquid Crystal will fish down to about 55 degree...

Re: Is a longer rod more useful?

The general rule is that longer rods will cast further (can arealize more line), are easier to mend line with, and provide a bit more tippet protection all other things being equal. I'm not sure I...

Re: Shortening a Fly Line

This, cut it off the back end and you'll be fine. Not only that it's easier to cast the whole fly line when it's 90' than when it's 110' :D
