Re: Montana Trip Inquiry

Don't rule out the MO...Missouri. If you want to catch Alaska size Trout go to Craig. Most fish per mile than anyother river in MT. Talk to Cross Currents and you can take a jet boat ride up to the...

If you're going to hit up several rivers and want to hook into BIG trout you have to fish the Missouri. You could fly into Helena, fish the MO (I bet you'll want to do more than one day once you hook...

Re: First Switch Rod

Well based on this I think I might ask for a Classic 6/7 and steel head 9wt line....SA line should work the same should it not?

Re: First Switch Rod

What about the St. Croix Imperial. I noti6ed Fly Fisherman Mag gave it best value?
I wish the Orvis Access came in a 6wt. I think that could be a great bang for the buck rod.

Re: albright rods

Some sporting goods stores somehow get their own models. I bought a North Face tent from one with a model name that didn't exist anywhere else. I wonder if Albright didn't do the same thing.

Re: Loomis guru or Orvis large arbor battenkill?

I've never heard of a Loomis Guru....Lamson Guru I have.
The Ross F1 retails for $450+ so it is not even close to the same price range.
I have been looking at these two reels myself...Lamson Guru...

Re: Problems with My Alpha

It's probably from your casting stroke. I have a Alpha and Trout and don't really have this problem.

Re: sage Z-Axis question

I just recently bought a 9' 5wt z-axis and love it. I'd recommend a 1/2 wt heavier line line Rio Grand or SA GPX. As far as length I'd agree with TTB that a 9' will work better for nymphing but if...

Re: New Yellowstone Angler 8 Weight Shootout Discussion

I wonder if Allen Co. got in on the shootout? Justin said he talked to them. Would be interesting to see how the Nano stacks up against the highend rods.

Re: Allen Nano Ti

Has anyone played around with different lines yet?
I have only been using Allen line but I think this rod might benefit from a wt1/2 higher line like Rio Grand or SA GPX.
I'm really tempted to try...

Anyone else tried either of these two rods (Passport or Vapor)?

Re: Used BIIMX or New BVK

Used BIIMX or New BVK
