    Re: Death of the Ross Spare Spool?

    Historically, I think spare spools have always been a somewhat overpriced indulgence in the ratio of things. Anglers perhaps justifying the purchase by "saving cost" over the purchase of an...
  2. Re: S.A Amplitude Smooth Infinity opinions or reviews?

    Thanks S&S, I've been checking in and out intermittently. Check out my post #7 -this same thread where I also mentioned Gold and some of it's beneficial nuances as well. I also have found some rods...

    Re: Superfine Carbon or Glass??

    Not completely on track for the thread (my apologies), but not fully off track either...In reading along it was blatantly apparent to me that the OP had already decided to purchase an Orvis rod, it...
  4. Re: S.A Amplitude Smooth Infinity opinions or reviews?

    They are now VERY similar lines, nearly identical body and tapers....except..the SA MEDT is available in a "competition" version which is a slightly longer line yet (added weight at distance). Either...
  5. Re: S.A Amplitude Smooth Infinity opinions or reviews?

    One weight lighter SA EDT on the GS886? Nope. Again, the GS886 is plenty stout and will perform perfectly with the true to weight EDT. 6WF. Besides, again, why would you sacrifice the payload...
  6. Re: S.A Amplitude Smooth Infinity opinions or reviews?

    If the "G886" is the new version GS886, I would contribute that I have found the SA Mastery Expert Distance Taper WF6 to be an excellent pairing for the rod when wanting a presentation line that...

  8. Re: Lordy. No time to be at Antero Reservoir, Colorado.

    I'm glad you are still enjoying what Colorado has evolved to in 2020. You are correct, there is no utopia and no place is perfect. Long term residents here are simply disheartened by the massive...
  9. Re: Lordy. No time to be at Antero Reservoir, Colorado.

    That is Truth! 20 years ago I would have highly recommended Colorado as a place to live, but today I would strongly warn anyone to consider their options, temperature extremes, are only one of the...
  10. Re: Lordy. No time to be at Antero Reservoir, Colorado.

    Doesn't seem right does it? I have witnessed similar though here in Colorado....I'm right at 8000' elevation and on the same snow plain as Monument Hill and the Palmer Divide. We are routinely 10+...

    Re: I gotta have one!

    Beautiful piece Scotty. As I have opined in several threads, I'm a "creel style bag" advocate and I'm glad to see some these new iterations coming to market. I think the industry may have missed the...
  12. Re: Lordy. No time to be at Antero Reservoir, Colorado.

    Yup. I feel like all I have done for the last few days is constantly break ice in every animal watering device on my place. Many of them are stainless steel and tonight (with wet hands) I had the...

    Re: Winston 7' 3wt WT vs Pure

    I personally like the Cortland 444SL 3WF on the 6'6" WT, it just casts well to me and is versatile enough for the distances I would fish with it. The SA Trout Taper 3WF is also excellent. I do favor...

    Re: Winston 7' 3wt WT vs Pure

    Hi and Welcome to the forum. There is a pile of information on rods in the wheelhouse that you are looking at here on the forum in past posts, including my ongoing "compare 3 weights" thread and...

    Guys, I'm likely myself on the tail end of my abilities to scale and wade some of the areas that I still attempt to fish. Younger me would wade deep and heavy currented water to my armpits in...

    Re: The Caster and Rod Design

    It has long been demonstrated that the highly regarded rods by any maker share several attributes.

    1) There is a talented rod designer behind the rods.
    2) The rod whether an individual in a...

    Re: Rio Creek fly line

    I use an SA Trout Taper on my GS773, specifically an Amplitude Smooth Trout WF3. The rod will throw the Rio Gold fine, but you may find it just a touch heavy. If you are working super close...

    The 904 in G and G2 was a very different rod than it is in GS trim. For many years the choice of most anglers bent toward the 884 being the preferred configuration in G and G2 over 904. The...

    Re: Scott g series 885 vs 905

    S&S, To your point, what a rod is capable of in competent hands and what a rod is best at are often two different animals. The GS905 has significantly more grunt than previous iterations and is far...
