Default Re: Today! Cabelas Prime 50% off

What a fun versatile rod... Today I went out on the big river... Prime 5wt lined with 200gr OPST head and 10' floating mow tip... Caught smallmouth, largemouth, freshwater drum, white bass and a gar... When action slowed on the big river I jumped in my car and headed to a nearby trout stream... Swapped out my Kraken for the 1494 medalist lined with wf5f and proceeded to catch a few trout on a hopper dropper rig... Currently my new favorite rod... Squirrel!

What did you think of the 5wt with the OPST head?

They are back up to $149. That price might have been a booboo. Glad I grabbed one at $49

Nice! I also noticed they had the 5/6wt CGR reel listed for $9.88 yesterday but now it is back up to $24.88 (which is still a pretty good deal).

Weirdly enough I went to cabela's today to grab a couple things and the fellow in the fly fishing department checked the price of the rods. The tags said $149 like online but they rang up at $49...

I have been watching this thing for the last two nights...debating. I really don't think I need a one piece rod.

When it went back down to $49 again last night, I looked at the rod for at least 45 minutes, reading and re-reading reviews. I really don't think I need a one piece rod.

I woke up this morning and decided if it was still $49 I was going to pick it up, even though I really don't think I need a one piece rod.

This morning at work, I input my order information on Cabella's and stared at the submit button for a couple of minutes, wondering why I think I need a one piece rod.

I pushed the button. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with a one piece rod.

Just picked up my 5wt a few minutes ago. I can't wait to get it to the water!

They are back on sale agein. The rod at $50 and the reel at $10. All they have in the reel is the #2. Is this too big for a one weight? At ten bucks, it's hard to pass up.
