Re: New Rod Advice

I would buy a 6 wt. There has to be other fishing in southern California beside small trout streams. With a 6 you could fish big lakes, do some warm water bass fishing and even some light salt water....

Re: Rio Gold question ???

Gold is my favorite line. You get a weight forward line that mends almost as well as a double taper. Also, like Sweet and Salt says, you can put a lot of line in the air. Works really well for...

Re: eagle claw trailmaster trp600 line ?

All the ones I have seen including mine are rated for a 7 we fly line. I think it casts like a glass rod is supposed to with a 7 wt. It's actually a pretty good rod. I took it on many backpack ...

Re: A Bunch of Rods Question

Sounds to me like you have it covered. The only other suggestion is if you get heavily into Pacific salmon, you might need a 9 or 10 weight or a spey rod. King or Chinook salmon can get real big and...

Re: all around trout rod

It would be a sin to part with the IM6 5wt. I agree with Cleteus above. keep the IM6 and the biix 6wt and you have it covered.

Re: ? on a bass rig...

I usually use either a 6 or 8 wt for most of my Bass fishing. I can usually use the 6 wt most of the time with poppers up to size 4-2 or smaller clousers. The big meat gets thrown with the 8 weight.

Re: Parking lot casting, etc. Stream Contamination

Any fly shop the sells the parking lot test lines with an outfit should be put out of business. It doesn't take too many asphalt casts to ruin a fly line.

Re: 3wt or 4wt short rod

In the situations you describe, I like a 7' 4 weight. I have a Orvis Superfine 4 piece that I use for these situations. I also like the idea of vintage glass. A 71/2' Fenwick 5 wt would work well...

Re: Newbie needs help with first set up

If they passed a law tomorrow and said you could only have one rod, I would choose a 6 weight. For my freshwater fishing, a six weight can do almost anything. Sure, I will be over gunned a bit in a...
