Rod Sage TCX 690, reel loop graphite, line MED 5 weight, leader hometied from old shootinglines and yeah, a piece of acryllic wool for fluff.Curious about the entire set up. Rod/reel/SA MED/leader/and I assume fairly generic fluff.
Is a setup like this strictly your field/distance/practice setup?
I bought a saltwater capable 7 wt as my practice rod but have just started using it for little shrimp flies. I’m curious to know what the better/best casters have for the lawn.
That was my 5 weight comp/practice setup for years. Double as my go to demo kit for shows and mentoring instructors.
Rod and line also used for fishing, leader changed for obvious reasons then
Generally, I practice with what I fish with, unless its something particular that needs tweaking, like carry, that needs a DT or a longbelly WF. And it's amazing how things like that have a knock on effect for other gear. If I can carry 75 feet of DT/LBWF with control, any 50 feet head line or shorter is a breeze, even if its a higher class. And that makes fishing so much more fun.
