Re: Abel Sealed Drag still waiting

Do we know yet if there's a new drag in the grip, or the tried and true version in the torque/rush?

Re: SoCal Surf Fishing - Rod

Ahh, sorry, I misread your original post. Thought you were seeking advice on which to purchase. Personally I would go with the 10' 6wt then, all things being equal, though rod type and action could...

Re: SoCal Surf Fishing - Rod

Honestly, neither of those configurations would be my first choice. The 8wt is definitely overkill for the vast majority of what you will be catching, and the type of flies you'll be throwing,...

Galvan Grip?

I heard from a small Galvan dealer today that there is a reel in the pipeline called the Grip. I didn't get much info about where it falls in their line up, and he said the Torque is continuing on,...

Hardy Ultralite Disc question

I recently picked up a couple of Ultralite Disc reels. A 2/3/4, and a 6. They have different drag knobs, and oddly, the knob on the 2/3/4 is substantially larger. Unfortunately I don't have a...

Re: Reel Love; the Fly Reel Picture Thread

Since the somewhat recent purchase of a Sage 504L, I have become more and more enamored with classic style C&P reels, and downright smitten with the Hardy Ultralite JLH series, and their Sage...

Re: Just Curious: How Many Fly Rods Do you Own

I guess I'm officially a Sage guy. I also fish a lot of really small water, so I've developed a bit of an obsession for ultralight gear. Here's the current quiver

SPL 080-3
SLT 181-3
Orvis...

Re: Fly Fishing The Surf

I fish the SoCal surf a bit. For the line you'll likely want an intermediate running line with a fast sink integrated shooting head. I've used an older version of the Rio Streamer Tip, the current...

Re: Classic dry fly rods

Not sure if the SLT line can really be considered classic yet, but the 389 is an awesome small to medium stream dry fly rod. I suppose the LL in that same configuration is the more classic version,...

Re: New SAGE rod, opinions wanted

For me the 691 One is a real sweetheart of a rod. I've fished it a lot n the surf, and it performed admirably. I recently sold it in favor of a 697 Method that will be used mostly in the surf, but...

Re: Galvan Brookie

Fisherman's Spot in Van Nuys, CA had a few on hand last time I was in there. I'm sure they would be willing to ship if they have what you need. I've special ordered Galvans from them before and it...

Re: Galvan Brookie

I love mine. I think it's the 2/3 size, and I use it on a 279 Circa. Love the new Clear finish (I think most Galvans look best in that finish).

Re: Rods You Just Can't Part With

For me it's my Sage SLT 376. It's a fantastic rod that is versatile beyond it's specs. More importantly there was a particularly difficult time in my life where I really leaned on fishing very...

Re: Reel Suggestions for Circa 479?

That's definitely a light rod in that configuration. Depending on whether or not you're looking for a somewhat substantial drag, the Galvan Brookie could be a contender, and is an excellent...

Re: Reel Love; the Fly Reel Picture Thread

Went in to the gear closet today to start prepping (hiding) gear for an impending house move, and decided to pull these guys out for a family portrait. Couple of new additions in there (Torques in...

I had a Torque 6 on mine, and thought it was a great match.

Re: First time with a 2 weight and searching for wild trout..

Having a stream that looks like that, holds brown trout, and is walking distance from the house is the stuff that dreams are made of.

Re: 7wt streamer rod

I like your inclination toward the one, but would personally go 796-4. I have used one for surf fishing with a Rio Streamer Tip line, and light, smooth, and powerful is exactly how I would describe...

Re: What color reel for Method?

The Silver/Red Hatch Finatic looks real nice on the Method. Galvan is about (not exactly sure about timing) to release some new colors for the Torque, with red being one of them.

Re: Sage Method comparison to Sage One (one guys perspective)

That was my experience with the 890s as well. For me Method feels faster, and I can cast farther, but generally has more feel and is more intuitive than One. Stiff was my immediate impression of...

Re: 3 ways 4wt reel battle

Torques have been awesome for me on my 4 and 5 weights. They can easily be had with the free line deal.

Re: Sage accel reviews?

I've had a similar line of reasoning. I missed the boat entirely on the 490 SLT, and was thinking of an Accel in that configuration as a reasonable facsimile. Anxious to cast one.
