Re: Various rods and reels for sale

Yep still available - just make me an offer if you want. I'm leaving Thursday morning for the Dean River, so I'll be offline for about 2 weeks after that.

I have the 9' 5wt and love it. Its my go to Rod. Precise, long casts. Not as good as my 5wt S4 for big streamers, but it really is a do all rod.

Re: Various rods and reels for sale

Glad it got there ok! You had me do a double take checking to see if I accidentally posted it as a 7wt instead of a 5wt! ha.

I have an 11' 8wt Plat switch for steelhead and purchased it at a local shop here in NE Ohio. So they do distribute, they just aren't well known yet outside the Pacific NW.

Re: Vedavoo Sling Pack Review

Product looks nice, and maybe its just me, but they seem awful price for what little you get. Makes some of the Simms and Patagonia stuff seem like a steal.

Re: Scott vs. Winston

I have both the Radian and S4...each in a 9' 5wt config. Love them both - the Radian for dries and nymphs, S4 for streamers.

The only Winston I've ever cast is a 9' 5wt VSL, which really isn't in...

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

30lb is good, and it'll fill the spool up better.

I switched to BOA's a few years ago when Simms first came out with them. Since then, I use the Korker's with BOA laces as they are about 50% lighter than the Simms boots. Seeing as how I fish in...

Re: For SCOTT ROD Fans...

Was really hoping for a new switch rod series that was stiffer, similar to that of the old Sage TCX (aka Deathstar).
