    The most recent rod to be dropped on the porch, just yesterday. It's a Beulah Guide series(now named the Classic series) 9' 6wt, picked it up cheap and after testing in the yard I'm pretty happy with it. It's a beast of a 6wt, a flat out rocket launcher.

    I have that rod on the wall and have to admit, I think I fished it twice in 2 years. How do you like it?
    I always take the Flight with me; I can't cast it as well as my 9wt in the wind but it sure feels light after casting the 9wt for a few hours. I think I'll like it better when I get a better line for it; using a Rio Mainstream line on it for now.

    I bought mine because I was impressed with the weight but I never seem to have the right application for it. All of my warmwater fishing is done with a 6 or 7 and it doesn't have enough backbone for fishing the salt. I guess I need to take up Steelheading. It's a true 8wt do Rio lines might be a little heavy. I cast a Sage performance taper on mine.

    Thanks, I'll keep that in mind when I'm ready to buy another line.

    Some great looking set up in this thread. For some reason i have never thought to have my fly rod be one of the main focuses when i am taking a picture of a landed fish. Also, i dont have any really cool set up photos of my rods and my camera isnt that great anyways. That being said, here are some of mine...

    My newest rod. My fathers wife gave it to me, it used to be her dads. It came with an old beat up Pflueger medalist reel with some really old line on it. I would like to find a nice reel for it but it doesnt seem right putting a new reel on it for some reason. It is a Heddon brand 3pc. The old timers at the fly shop tell me it is about a 7wt.


    This is the rod i am most excited about right now. My summer steelhead/Bull trout/Carp rod. Echo Ion 7wt w/Echo Ion reel.


    My new tuna rod and future tarpon rod(hopefully). Look at this thing! It is a beast! A beautiful blue color. Echo 3S 12wt w/Echo Ion reel.


    Here is the rod that i learned to cast on. I got a lot of appreciation for Redington because of this simple starter rod. Red.Fly2 6wt w/ Ross CLA reel.


    And my favorite rod of all i own. My Sage Flight 5wt w/Bauer Jr McKenzie reel. Here you also see my little assistant. She is always present when i am at my PC or learning to try flies. She is full grown and all of about 3 lbs soaking wet. I have been thinking, some of that long grey hair of hers would be a nice color for a big bull trout leech.


    I have a few more rods, i may try a few more photos. I know one thing now, after seeing a number of pictures of them i want one of those Allen rods with the sweet shiny green reels. Very sexy.

    She looks like she could produce some fantastic dubbing. I'm just saying...

    My friend's custom Meiser, artsy fartsi'fied.


    Next time I see it I'll try to take a picture that does it justice. This was a salvage job. Purty reel though.
