    Re: Talk to me about Scott G rods

    This question is not a simple "which fly rod", it has historical implications. When Scott introduced Graphite (G) back in the latter 1970's it was revolutionary. No, not because of material but...

    Re: Sage igniter 590My thoughts so far...

    My Method is a #6 and Ignitor a #5 and like dillon wrote, these contiguous series are rather unalike. Oh, sure, they are Sage's top performance models dating back to TCR and TCX. However, Method is...

    Re: Sage LL

    Well now, while fishing up on the upper West Brank this past week, I took time off from the no afternoon hatch of Sulphur's and stopped by the well merchandised fly shop at the West Branch Angler and...
  4. Re: Differences Between Hardy Zephrus SWS and AWS?

    I have fished the SWS on a friends boat and was impressed, very nice rod. How does it compare to the previous gen Hardy Proaxis? Go find a used one of those.

    Re: Galvan Reels customer service

    I can't "drive over" to their shop but I do fish a T6 on a 5-weight and I've not had to send it back.
  6. Re: Nautilus XL Max failure right out of the box

    I fish and own examples of every reel that has been mentioned in this thread except for the Charlton/Mako. I fish an Xm Nautilus on one of my most used 4-weights and it had been flawless and better...

    Re: Best SA line for small streams?

    With all due respect, TT's ARE good for roll casting but NOT for close in presentations, too little mass out the tip top. Also, lines DO matter, a lot. Not that ordinary won't work Ok but it is...
  8. Re: Check out this new custom shop Abel TR 5/6

    My old BG 3N is "Guide Finish" matte black and my Super 8, standard black. However, my "demo" SD for 4-wt. is bright red with Brown Trout trim (as all of them were).
  9. Re: Thoughts on using protectant on floating lines

    Really just mild soap diluted in warm water and a clean soft cloth is all that is required. You do not want to use products that accelerate the migration of imbedded plasticizers. I like to hook my...

  11. Re: Do you half hitch after your clinch knot?

    Leaving half hitches and "my favorite knot" aside, NEVER settle on a knot in any part of your rigging because it has always worked for you. ALWAYS experiment with new-to-you knots. Learn to tie and...

    Though my newest Abel is an SDF in matte graphite grey (Slate) my long favorite color for them is...black.

    Re: Do you have a fly rod problem?

    I'm confident there are folks who simply want to fish now and then and could care less about their sparse and lackluster tackle...they just don't tend to be engaged in the culture and history of fly...

    And that I what I've now packed for the next three days; 9'/#4 SKY with RIO Gold, 8 1/2'/#4 StreamDance with Cortland Omni-Verse and, in case we go upstream, Scott 8'4"/#4 GS with SA Trout...3 quite...
  16. Re: Suggestions requested for 9 5WT Scott Radian?

    I appreciate there are costs involved but a really good fly shop should have the most popular lines rigged for customers to learn their options...and for the shop to sell them said line.

    Re: NRX Rods being discontinued.

    Hi Burk, I still have the Zenith in 9'/#5 and 8 1/2'/#4...regrettably not in the 8'10" one-piece versions which were undeniably superior in both #'s 4 and 5. For about a year the 8 1/2'/#4 was my...
  18. Re: Suggestions requested for 9 5WT Scott Radian?

    Ideally you would find the opportunity to cast your new rod with both a shops rigged up Gold and Infinity. Regrettably, this is hard to do, I wish it was easier.

    Yes, I have Evo LTX 4|5 as a perfect balance on Scott 8'4"/#4 GS...9'/#5 Radian would prefer it in 5|6. Unless you are nymphing a lot, Radian would prefer Gold to heavier and more forward weight...

    Re: NRX Rods being discontinued.

    I agree that the Zenith feels lighter in hand and is also lighter in actual weight. As I've suggested before, if NRX has a "flaw" it is in physical weight...not that it is heavy but is relatively so...
