    Thanks for the info; one last question … what are they using the water for? Crop Irrigation?

    Re: Rod reel balance

    Here is was called a 'Belly Reel' or sum-such. Thing was HUGE and a pain to 'ware' let alone reel in a fish.
  9. Re: Does anyone have experience with Dorsey Indicators?

    Just my .02 cents here.

    Regardless of the make you have to goop it up with floatant or as noted above its just a mater of time before it sinks like a rock. Soaked they're a bit ch to cast!.
  10. 6 wt 11 footish spey rod (and all the rest if available.

    This may be a repeat post, sorry if it is, but need a used (reasonable condition) 11-12 foot 6 wt spey rod. Reel and line would be extra cool if available. Most willing to pay a fair price for the...

    Re: Rod reel balance

    If you use a 2hander rod balance is very important! Tip heavy will kill your rod holding hand (after a cast) 'PDQ.'

    Re: T&T DNA Spey, my first long rod

    With a grain of salt here::pop2:


    Skagit's are short, sweet, heavy and to the point for chucking heavier/larger flies. 'Scandies' are more of a 'presentation' line for softer/smoother runs and...

    What made me cry was the cost of a good set of 'sweeps' for a drift boat. Easy to drop well over $300.00 for a set. :eek:

    Re: T&T DNA Spey, my first long rod

    Across the board spey lines, at least the full on one's, are HUGE and suck up a lot of space. Which is why most, if not all, of us have gone to 'head systems.' Running line is the same regardless of...
