Re: Trout Fly Rod Arsenal

The obvious gap in your lineup (for trout fishing applications) is a small stream rod or a dedicated nymphing rod. Both will definitely add to your enjoyment, but will take away from the usefulness...

Re: Did I make a mistake?

Probably. You might find it too limp to cast in the FL heat. If you're walking and wading, you might be OK, but on a boat the deck will be much hotter.

Re: Scott vs. Winston

At face value, they are similar. Both are 'independent' rod companies, both made in the USA, both very well made. However, if you dig a little deeper, the personalities of these rod companies...

Re: Sage ACCEL

I had the chance to cast the Accel. I'd say it's more similar to the VXP than the Z-axis. A nice med-fast rod that's going to be great at dries, but not as accurate/light as the Circa and not as fast...

Re: Loomis NRX LP?

Hi John,

The LP is definitely a much softer rod than the 'standard' NRX. It makes a pretty nice all-arounder (particularly if you throw a lot of dries), but don't expect it to be a super distance...

Re: Bass rod

They are both basically 8wt rods. I would probably go with something lighter for smallies, but either will work for stripers and steelhead.

Re: reel balance?

I feel like this has been sufficiently answered, but balance is a really personal choice. As a rule of thumb, an ounce of weight in the reel will move the balance point of the rod an inch....

Re: 9' vs 9.5' vs 10' fly rods ?

The short answer is that longer rods cast further, but less accurately. Longer rods are also slower in action, all else being equal.

The extra length will definitely add distance, but also make...

Winston Passport Fly Rod Review

The Wintson Passport is Winston's (budget minded) fast action rod. It's received a lot of acclaim, not only for its casting ability, but for being out of stock. Everywhere. We've got them!
