Re: Scott Radian

I bought a Radian when they were scarce and took it to the Green River. It is a great rod for long line, but did not like it at all for short line fishing. It cast well on the grass, but fishing it...

Re: A couple of Redingtons

Interesting. I have since this write up purchased a couple other Redingtons.

I went with one of their CPS upgrades, the CPX in a nine foot four weight. Very fast, like the CPS but with a softer...

Re: sunglass lenses

I like to use a tan lens. I recently bought some close out titanium series Rapala glasses that I am very impressed with. I bought some dark lens ones as well but don't really like dark lenses on the...

Re: Fly Fishing in a Kilt?

In all actuality, I cannot think of anything more ridiculous then this idea.

I am really trying to see the upside but there is not one.

Some bad ideas come along from time to time, but this...

Re: Cheap DIY Floatant - AMAZING!

If your line is starting to sink, it is due to wicking. Inside of your flyline is a center core, usually made of a material that will absorb water. When you spliced it onto your leader, you would...

Re: price difference

There is no reason you cannot buy the lower priced set up and be perfectly pleased with it. I see no point in spending five hundred dollars on a rod. I fish with an Albright GP rod and it is my...

Re: Redington CD Reel opinions?

Is this one of the old ones?

They were junk! I had one and the drag would slip and stick. The thing was machined very sloppy and after a while it seemed to be falling apart. The bad thing is...

Re: Reels

I would personally recommend the Okuma. Great company with great gear.

As far as the DT WF thing, the reel would take more backing to fill the same size weight forward line as a DT line is the...

Re: short rods vs. long rods

Most people in my neck of the woods go with a nine foot five weight.

My favorite rod though is an eight foot five weight. It is more accurate then the nine footer, imo. I get just as much...

Re: TFO Professional 9ft 5wt 4pc

I must say I heartily disagree with that statement.

When someone first starts flyfishing I would say that having a bunch of rods is a bad thing. They need to master the mechanics of the cast,...

Re: good beginner rod??

Can I just make a blanket post here????

We get about five posts a day that ask if a rod, reel, line, or package is good for a beginner.

I would like to just share what I feel in this matter....

Albright rod. I have and fish with one and it is quickly becoming my favorite.

You can get the GP rod on Ebay right now for about $65 or you can find...

Re: Question about rod quality

Funny thing is that many are going right back to the cane and glass of yesterday. It is fine material and the rods are great to fish with.

I love catching a fish with a $30 rod while everyone...

Re: TFO Professional 9ft 5wt 4pc

The Professional rods are very nice sticks. They cast well and have a great warranty. They did not scrimp on putting them together. Not the best lookers but then again, I don't think those things...

Re: Question about rod quality

Honestly, I think this is one of those funny subjects.

Take a look at some of the fly fishing greats from the past and see what they were using. The rods they were making great casts with and...

Re: Fast, medium or slow action best for roll casting?

Definately slower action. I have fished glass rods that bend to the cork that could roll cast my sister into the middle of the lake.

And for those who want to practice roll casting in your yard,...

Re: Sage Launch Anyone?

The Sage Launch is a great stick. I have used the seven and a half footer. Great casting rod.

I would say though that there are other options out there though so cast a few and see which ones you...

I second my motion

I just got out my Albright GP fly rod. 8 foot 5/6. I have made comment about this stick before but I have to just re-iterate. This is one of the finest casting sticks out there. Sub $100 rod and man,...

Re: Why Shouldn't I Keep this Rod????

They are fantastic rods and that is a screaming deal.

That rod is made by SAGE overseas and is a wonderful caster and carries a great warranty.

I say keep it and enjoy!

Re: Just ordered an Orvis BBS - did I make the right choice??

Orvis makes fantastic gear and the BBS is no exception. You will love this reel.

And the CFO's are a bit small in their capacity. But the old ones are one of the finest pieces of equipment you...

Re: Some times ya just get dumb lucky!

I love glass rods and several times a year do pawn shop hopping to look at what they have. Mostly I find junk and move on but occasionally I hit pay dirt.

My last great find was an...

Probably if he would mind if I went up around the bend and fished alone.
