Re: Question about rod and reel cases

I like the tubes with built in dividers for convenience. The Redington divided tubes are readily available for $25 with free shipping. A few have commented that it is difficult to get rods less...

Re: Sage One 4wt sweet spot?

I remember reading that in the past couple days also. A comment in a thread though (maybe a Radian thread) and not an entire thread comparing the 490 to the 486. I have around ten 4 wts and the...

Re: I have too much **** that needs to go!

George,
That reel is a perfect match. I fished one on it for a while as well and it seemed to balance very well. How did you think the line matched up to the rod?

Rich

Re: I have too much **** that needs to go!

It is good to have choices. Don't leave out the Hardy LRH from consideration, that is what I fished on it and it was a sweet setup. That Abel sounds like a great pairing too and you already have it...

Re: DO NOT fish the Kickapoo river tribs!

That is no good. How far up on Tainter were you? What time of day? If the upper section is that warm we (and the trout) are in trouble. Any word on water temps in the Bad Axe watershed?
