Re: Cabelas Lsi 9' 6wt $110 shipped

This was a great fishing rod, very nice caster. I was the original owner on this rod, and wish I still had it now that I've been fishing for larger fish with some hefty streamers this year a lot more...

Re: Castwell's knot - Old flyline to leader knot

I have been using the Castwell Knot (which really is more of a bight than a knot) for about fourteen years or so now. I have never had one come undone, never lost a leader or had that connection...

Re: Allen rods - ferrells?

To muddy the waters further - I just got an Allen Xa 7'6" 3 weight in the mail - and it has these ferrules while the Allen Xa 8' 3 weight blank I got has standard tip-over-butt ferrules. Seems like...

Re: What's the worst fly rod you've ever had?

Toss up. I had a "Custom Made" branded 6 weight rod made by WW Grigg that was a real club. Horrible action, nasty foam handle. Swung like a club and I couldn't cast more than 20 feet with it.

Re: Some tactical questions (trout fishing)

1.) Loop to loop is just fine - go with a shorter leader. On a small, bushy stream, you don't need a long leader. My go-to small stream rods are a 6'6" 4 weight, a 7' 2 weight, and a 7'6" 3 weight,...

Re: Cabela's LSi 9' 6 wt 4 pc

That'd work for me - I'm more of a light-line fisherman anyway and I rarely fish the 6 weight, which was the main impetus in it's sale.

Re: Cabela's LSi 9' 6 wt 4 pc

Condition is excellent. As mentioned in OP - this rod has only seen water maybe a dozen times - the biggest fish to put a bend in it was a summer steelhead hooked on 5X tippet while trout fishing on...

Re: Line choice for a 6 wt TFO BVK

I don't own a BVK - but I tried a couple out when I was hunting for a new 6 weight last year. Seemed like a pretty stiff/fast rod. It worked well with a Sci Anglers GPX taper line - and it worked...

Re: Flycast tips or tricks for a 1WT

Check your cast timing - your 1WT is probably a slower action than your other rods - you'll just have to adjust your timing to it. It helps to watch the back cast until you get the hang of it - and...

Re: Rod guides

My Echo 8 weight has single foot guides. Their 10+ might use snakes - but I don't think they are worried about pulling a guide out of the wraps by casting or fighting fish. You'll probably break the...

Re: 3wt Help.

The TQR rods are nice for a rod around a hundred bucks. If you wanted to save even more cash - the Three Forks 7'6" 3 weight is a good inexpensive rod - perfectly suited to bluegill and panfish. The...

Re: Rod guides

Other than tradition - there's no benefit to traditional double foot snakes over single foot snakes. Most high end rod makers are making the switch to single foots, because they weigh less, and when...

Re: Beginner Help: Redington vs Cabela's

I have the Wind River 4 weight, and it's a fine rod, especially for an under $100 rod. I also own the Prestige Plus reel - and my only complaint is it's a little heavy for it's size.

I don't have...

Re: 3wt Help.

It depends on how far you want/need to cast. Bigger flies can be cast shorter ranges. I typically fish flies from size 8 and smaller with such rods. Bushy, wind resistant flies require more effort...

Re: Cool fly from youtube

There's a youtube video of some guys fishing for trout using the Gezus Lizards - some FAT trouts eating the things. And of course bass like 'em.

If spring ever actually arrives - I plan on giving...

Re: Rod for panfish/trout

I'm a light rod junkie - my go-to rods for almost all trouting and panfishing are 2-4 weight rods. I have an 8'6" 3 weight that I purchased recently for just such purposes. I've got a 7' 2 weight...

Re: TFO-BVK 10' 4wt. Anybody have one?

Shouldn't be a problem over-lining if you're casting short to medium ranges. Remember that a rod's weight theoretically comes from casting 30 feet of line. If you're casting less than that distance,...

Re: 4 piece 6wt with fighting butt?

Echo Ion.

They are 4 piece 9 or 10 foot rods, full wells grip, with fighting butt. They start at 6 weights and go up. Rod sock & tube, good warranty. They run $189. Wonderful casters.

Re: Cheap Cabelas rod, whats it worth?

I probably wouldn't pay more than about $50 plus shipping - and that might be a stretch. Their Wind River rods go on sale frequently for $35-45, and it's regularly priced at about $100. The Three...
