    Re: 5wt Loomis NRX or NRX LP

    I have recently become a fan of the faster rods for drys in my fly rods and the NRX's in their different configurations offer both. I find the LP a good all-round rod and when fishing small dries in...

    Re: 5wt Loomis NRX or NRX LP

    I think the answer depends on the rivers you fish. I fish the NRX LP on small to moderate rivers and think it works fine. I think the standard NRX would be a better nymphing rod and would still...

    I will second Hateyes as a good option. They also come in different strengths to match your needs.

    Re: First NRX+ reviews are in!

    SS,
    I think that Telluride Angler called it when they stated that the Rio Gold was the correct line for the new rods. I did ask if the Rep had the 8 1/2 foot 4 weight but it wasn't in his kit. He...

    Re: 4 wt or 5 wt for freestone river

    If your fishing is under close cover have you considered an 8 1/2 foot rod? On a couple off streams, I use my 4 weight 8 1/2' Pules. It is fast enough for streamer work, nymphing, soft hackles, and...

    Re: First post - 5 wt upgrade

    I would go with the Orvis rod of choice. I, repeat I, liked the feel of the H3F better than the D. It is purely personnel preference. I would like to and probably will soon cast both again. Just...

    Re: First post - 5 wt upgrade

    I have cast all three of these rods. I liked the H3F a lot. the H3D is a much faster rod and probably the more accurate of the two. The action of the F was better suited to the rivers I fish and my...

    Re: First post - 5 wt upgrade

    I know that the NRX LP in 5 weight has been mentioned. I fish that rod as the main rod and it is excellent. It is a more moderate action rod. If you want a faster rod look for the NRX trout model in...

    Re: Hoffman number 1 grizzly hackle

    Thanks, again Silver.
    I have one and I am putting it to use. I am a far cry away from telling a hackles size just by looking at it against a white background. I'll get there if God gives me...

    I highly suggest you do visit either F-C or Hargroves and shop for the hackle. I tend to shop at F/C most often. I bought a 1/2 Bronze Grizzly Midge Saddle from F/C for a pretty decent price and the...

    Re: Another Tippet Ring Question

    I generally use a 7 1/2 foot 3 or 4x leader, tie on the tippet ring and then either a 5x or 6x tippet. If you wanted to lighter tippet you could tie a 7 or 8x onto the 5x or 6x for a longer dry fly...

    Can you try different lines at a fly shop? I would avoid a line that may be too heavy for your LP. The Rio Gold is a true 5 weight on the heavier side that loads my LP well and gives me good...

    The NRX LP is a great rod as is the 3F. You probably can't go wrong either way but the Orvis is the latest and greatest so if that's important to you than the Orvis rod is the one I would go with if...
