    Re: Need some help to choose a dry fly rod

    Well, are you keeping the 904 X?

    If so, I think you want to drop down to at least 804/844/863

    If not, 864.

    We don’t really know what size of rivers you fish on. Anything big and open I like...

    Re: New Orvis Pro Fly Line

    Hi Guys. Just bumping this thread. I’ve decided to get the 4wt for my 904, but just wondering if we have any more users and opinions out there for this line. Also, how loud do you feel the...

    Re: 2/3/4 reel on 7'4" 4 wt Echo Glass?

    Hi OP.

    It sounds a little tight to me, and I hate to have lines jammed to the rim of the spool. I’ve got a 3wt line on a 3-4-5 Click with a bit of backing and it’s just right. So, how big are the...

    Re: Purchasing Dilemma! Please help!

    Dude. That is a bad question. That is really the wrong question. So wrong. Okay fine, but if my wife finds out I said this I will blame you and burn your house down :-) Winston Air 864.

    Re: Purchasing Dilemma! Please help!

    I would also think a 6wt is a good idea for what you are saying, as long as it is not a broom stick. As soon as you use the term “heavy nymph rig” I think 6wt. And 6wts will do a lot, but ya know,...

    Re: Sage Spectrum or Ross Animas

    Hi OP. I’ll bet you could still find the last version of Animas out there for a good discount. It’s a great reel too, almost zero start-up inertia. I just saved $150 on an Evolution R getting it...

    Re: Recomendations on an 8' 4wt rod

    I really should have thought of this earlier, but if you really want an 804, I’ll bet there are some glass 804s that would fit the bill. That would some sexy goodness right there. It might take some...

    Hi Luked.

    You really can’t do any serious nymphing with a 4wt. Some of the faster 904’s will do it, but then you are already...

    Re: Slow stroke, fast rod?

    Well, I was just splitting hairs with karstopo for a minute. The point was, even if you didn't have a line on the rod, it's still being loaded anytime you swing it hard enough to bend it. Just...

    Re: Slow stroke, fast rod?

    If you take a rod, WITHOUT A LINE, and give it a forward stroke, it will bend/load. We swing rods around at the fly shop all the time and they load right before our eyes. And then they snap back to...
