Re: Beginner Rod & Reel Outfit

If you are new to the sport and not sure what you like (rod action - fast, medium, slow, etc), the best thing you can do is either try someone else's gear, or go to a fly shop and cast several rods,...

Re: Testing Kayaks for Flyakking

Good point on the lack of scupper holes on the Native Ultimate. A better option in their product line may be the Native Slayer, which does have them.

Re: Casting distance, expectations

Re: 7wt line on a 6 wt reel
