Kamchatka rods

I just plunked down the deposit for a trip to Kamchatka next summer. We are headed to the Savan river, which is spring creekish. Recommended weights are 6 and 7, and skated mice is the most common...

Re: Scott F Series Fiberglass Rods

Haven't fished the f2, but I own the 6.5 3 wt f series. Love it. I would say its a rare cast that goes beyond 15 feet when creek fishing and it gets it out there beautifully so long as you are...

Who Makes Who's Rods?........

Couple of things as I return to this thread. Maybe it's just me, but I have not read a bit of nationalistic bias or jingoism in these opinions. It is veering off course from the original question of...

Re: Who Makes Who's Rods?........

This is an interesting topic to me. To swerve off course for a second, I may be more of a road biking dork than a fly fishing dork. Carbon fiber bikes were pioneered at first in Europe, then trek...

Re: Another 3wt to complement my Sage Zxl?

All good suggestions. To throw in another idea, nothing makes me happier than finding an opportunity to get out the Scott fibertouch 3 wt. It's total blast and change of pace. Find a creek, and go...

Re: 6wt Recommendation

See if you can find a nice used sage SLT. Ought to fit your budget, and it's a true med action rod. I fish a hardy zenith for fast action / big rivers, a Scott G2 for pure dry fly situations, and I...

Re: Help with another fly rod purchase

The Sage SLT is my favorite med action trout rod. You should be able to find one in your price range. The zxl followed the SLT, but you will find more people prefer the feel of the SLT. Few modern...

Re: Abel Hemostats

Nice looking little piece of gear. Only concern is weight. I usually clip my hemos to a shirt pocket, or my shorts, or some other readily accessible flap of something. These look heavy enough to rip...

Re: Odd or even number rods?

Odds for fresh, evens for salt.
3 weight for small streams. A fast 5 and a softer 5 cover most scenarios for trout

The 8, 10, 12 combo for salt covers all I ever need.

Although I have others...

Re: Which New Wading Boot?

I picked up a pair of the korkers chrome boots on sale for half off at my local shop. My only complaint has been the boa lace system. I just can't seem to get them snug enough to give any type of...
