    Re: Line for Hardy Zenith

    I have the 8' 4wt and like the Airflo super dri elite on it.
  2. Re: What is your cheapest and your most expensive

    HaHa, I had a couple of those too but only the name is the same. Mine is just a cheap flyrod from either the local hardware or discount store. Someone probably paid them to use the name. This...
  3. Re: The Vintage Orvis Rod User / Collectors Thread;

    Still have and occasionally fish the 8' #6 trout and 7'9" #5 Far and Fine from the early 80s. When I want to teach someone to cast I almost always use the far and fine.
  4. Re: What is your cheapest and your most expensive

    Cheapest is a Mitchell 300 labeled as an 8' 5/6 but really is a soft 4. Bought in my teens for under $20. Still have it and fish it with a Martin tuna can once a year or so.
    Most expensive Sage...

    Re: Some of this gear seems redundant...maybe

    "Pretty much every stream where there are trout is approx a 1/2 hour to an hour's hike in."

    Do you have a bluegill pond close by? Might make sense to do a trial run to make sure you have what you...

  11. Re: What Is The Lightest Line Weight Rod You Own?

    The lightest I've had was a 2wt but found it not versatile enough for my fishing so now 3wt is as light as I go. The softest/lightest is a BiiT 7'6" 3wt. I could probably fish it with a 2wt line if...

    Re: Older Sage rod?

    The RPL and LL were contemporaries. Without getting into too much detail the RPL was a faster taper and the LL was the slower offering. Think Sage One and Sage Circa.

    Re: Rod Arsenal and where you fish.

    Most of my fishing is for trout in the driftless. Here is a cut and paste from my gear spreadsheet including what reel and line I match them with. Format didn't come through very well....

    Re: A very dumb split shot question

    One thing you might want to check is the depth of the slot. I once had some #8 shot that had a very shallow slot, maybe only 1/3 the depth of the shot. The shallow slot didn't allow it to fully...
  15. Re: Anyone wear a wading jacket with waist waders?

    No gap as long as you stand up straight and don't move :-) I wear G3 convertibles with a Filson wading jacket and the jacket just covers the waist band by a couple inches but moving around and...

    Re: Winston Bii-T reel question

    In 3wt I have a BiiT 376 and use a Abel TR1 and in 4 weight a GVX, WT and two BiiTs that all sport CFOIIIs. All are snug on the foot but no problem getting them on. I'd post pics but my album has...
  17. Re: Looking 4: 6.6 oz reel for a 6 wt 8'6" Orvis Superfine Glass rod

    Douglas Argus 3 1/2" would seem to be a good match aesthetically. Mine weighs a touch over 5.5oz empty.

    Re: Line recommendations for my 3wt's?

    I use an Airflo super dry elite on my ZXL 386 and it seems to be a good match. I've also fished it with a rio gold but like the elite better.

    The liner socks are key. Without them it is like there is a vacuum seal between the neoprene and your foot.

    Re: Sage ONE 486

    My all time favorite for the driftless area. When they closed them out I bought a spare and put it in the closet in case the unthinkable would ever happen to it.
