Default Re: Christmas Island!!!

I now have my 12wt setup!! That completes all the expensive equipment I needed to invest in LOL!

I ended up with a great setup for an incredible price!! I'm not a huge Ebay person but it really paid off this time. I bought a brand new, never fished hatch 12Plus with a spare spool for $700.00 from a fly shop in Montana in May and just got a brand new Orivs Helios 2 12wt 4pc for $595.00 from a fly shop in Florida!

The shop in Florida had actually sold there last one but had not taken down the ebay ad yet so when i did a buy it now, they had one dropped shipped from Orvis to me!!

It casts like a dream - Life is good

Sounds great! Get out and cast the 12wt quite a bit before you go.

It's a different beast and you'll need to work on it. You don't want to have to be dialing it in when you're actually fishing.

Regards,


Trevor
