    Re: 8' #4 vs 9' #5

    Appreciate the feedback. I just purchased the 9' #5 for just over $340. Look forward to fishing the Demon Smuggler on my bicycle trip this summer.

  3. Re: What rod and reel case for hiking w/2 rods up to 11 feet

    I thought you were going up to 11 feet altitude and I almost had a nosebleed.

    I'm considering going with the 8' #4 to save 2 inches in travel length for the rode tube is 19.5 and 21.5 inches...

    Re: Soft Tip? - Crisp Tip?

    For any fly rod I'm fishing I eventually find the sweet spot via an a-ha moment on the water, grinning as my fly lands on a plate. Variables range from river, weather, and how I'm feeling to fly,...

    Streamer baptism

    Re: Why are you here?

    Mostly, the wading staff threads.

    I'm also sticking around to hear S&S wax poetic about his Sage fly rods. I've read so much about his NRX #4 but nada on his Sage quiver.

    Re: SA Infinity and Trout

    Fwiw Steve Rajeff tested the NRX series with SA Trout. He said fishing an NRX with MPX is fine that it will just load the rod a little further down the blank.

    The Freestone Ambi sling comes in two sizes. I like the smaller size called the tactical. It has plenty of room for a rain jacket and water bottle, snacks.
