Re: 20lb OR 30lb Dacron backing on Salmon rig

yes, 30lb for everything; bulk roll of the stuff is cheaper and it is less apt to bind up on the reel like 20lb sometimes does.

Re: Classic....Really?

I definitely prefer classic when it comes to reels but my rods are all pretty modern tapers. I just can't get enough of the old classic Hardys especially, but even their newly built classic style...

Re: Have we passed the 'point of no return' with custom build 2handers?

I just love how the really great rods are available at a steal of a price when the new models come out! I'm glad there are people out there that can afford to buy the newest versions so they can let...

Re: Found an old Sage in my garage

Another reel to look out for on auction is the JW Young made Sage 108m which is heavy enough to balance that rod and fairly inexpensive but a solid built reel.

Re: Extras - Galvan, SAGE, Hardy, Orvis & Granger

Very nice machined aluminum Hardy reels; you can get a nut cover for them if you look hard or one that will do from an auto accessory store. I am using a 508 on my 9.5' 6wt rod; it's got lots of room...
