    Re: Winston – A Venerable Classic Brand?

    To the first part, I'm not selling or marketing or promoting any brand. I test cast and fish the rod, not the image or price-point. I fish from the biggest player to the...
  3. Re: So who's really the G.O.A.T fly fisherman???

    So many great fly fishers' in the recent past with ongoing influence. In no particular order just how they come to my evening mind: Wulff, Brooks (along with his great friend, Bebe Anchorena), Ernest...
  4. Re: Compare and Contrast Scott Fast Action Rods 5wt and 6wt: S3, S4, Radian

    When Scott introduced their Scott Graphite's in the latter 1970's, compared to the Orvis, Fenwick, Leonard and also new Winston's of that time, they where fast rods. Add in the Scott 8'8" Heliply's...

    Re: Repairing Ol" Orvis graphite rod

    The ferrule on the old Orvis in question is a three piece tip over butt design...notorious for eventually failing. Orvis can replace the female sleeve which very likely has longitudinal micro cracks...

    Re: Winston – A Venerable Classic Brand?

    Every rod designer I've ever met has been a great caster/angler. They understand how to create rods because they know what the rod needs to be able to do. I like the saying; "Fine fly rods are built...

    "I am more ethical and have my morals." smoke

    All well and good. Sometimes though, as in the current Winston thread, my "ethics" lead to controlled ranting which draws vehement ire. Everything...

    Re: Winston – A Venerable Classic Brand?

    Your IM6 WT's are regarded by many as an apex in Morgan's rod history. Those blanks were, of course, built by Gary Loomis. Jim Murphy's history of accomplishment and the legacy he left behind at...

    Re: Winston – A Venerable Classic Brand?

    Apparently the actions of a company can be painful but not to worry, winstonwt, I have no issues with your older Morgan era WT's. I'd suggest you do some investigation into the factuality of what I...

    You do not seem to have risen to my drift. Yes, they added much needed outside talent; all of whom are now gone of their own volition or not. They did employ nano silica resin for the AIR series but...

    Re: “Get casting lessons.”

    We met for the first time in Colorado at a PHWFF Rendezvous but again in NJ at Somerset. He wanted me to work with him toward IFF Certification but I was not too interested in that.

    Re: Sage trout ll

    op, I need to learn more but the two that interest me are the pair of 8 1/2' footers the #'s 4 and 5. The 9'/#6???
  15. Re: Rod Size Experiment: Scott#4 & SKY#6 in 5-Weight Habitat

    As I've written before, Jim Murphy's Nti "Nano" was brilliant and way ahead of its time. The first rod using NASA developed Nano titanium ceramic additive resin was built in New Zealand and finished...
  16. Re: Taylor Truth and matching Revolution Z

    It is my preference to fish a river with both wild reproducing rainbows and browns. When Jack Hemingway surreptitiously dumped a bucket of little brown trout into Kilpatrick pond on Silver Creek, it...
  17. Re: Mid section of taper to first section of tippet material, what knot?

    OP, I like the Surgeon Knot for forming loops which are stronger than Perfection Loops but dislike it in leader segment construction. It is inelegant and worse sets the segments attached at a slight...

    I don't have a recombination but really like UV curing low viscosity resin for rigging. I coat some knots for smoothness and a lock when I desire zero tag as in the finish knot on a Bimini. I've also...

  23. Re: Need some help to choose a dry fly rod

    bmh, I think the 8'8" may be a better casting taper than the 9' GS. One can not go wrong with these GS's, I think Scott's best trout rods. However, if possible, test them together with Sage's 8...
  24. Re: Rod Size Experiment: Scott#4 & SKY#6 in 5-Weight Habitat

    Alterative 6-Weights

    The 6-weight line has many advantages over lighter line weights but the broad perception is that "delicacy" is not one of them. This is understandable as I look at Dillon's...
