    Re: Sage Bass ll Flyrods: opinions based on use

    Re: St Croix downsizing...

    When SC addresses a return or repair they will often replace it with a different rod rather than with the same blank of the problem rod. I had a 7 wt imperial and they replaced it with an avid. So,...

    Re: St Croix downsizing...

    I recently visited their factory in Park Falls to turn in a broken spinning rod and to get it fixed. Their factory is on the small side but what is nice is that they have a store attached to the...
  4. Re: What are your must have's that you would not want to fish without?

  7. Re: Do you fish on SUPs or Kayaks? Which one do you prefer?

    One other comment. If I was only fishing rivers with current my preferred craft would be a driftboat.
  8. Re: Do you fish on SUPs or Kayaks? Which one do you prefer?

    I think the market you are talking about is rather small and highly specialized. The key question for me is what kind of fishing situation are you referring to where a SUP would offer advantages over...

    Re: Any Sage Light Line fans?

    I have this same rod and agree with Big Fly that it is a very nice rod to cast. I also keep mine tubed and do not use it much any more. I also have a 2 pc 389 that in my opinion, has a nicer and...
  10. Re: Are Guides On Trout Rivers Becoming a Problem For Other Fisherman? I Say Yes

    Re: Equipment that's too nice to use.

    I like to use my equipment, but agree that seeing it dinged is hard. My basic rule is that if a piece of fly fishing equipment is too pretty or nice to use, then do not buy it. As Ard points out...

    I see your idea here but my guess is that the 4 wt satisfies most of your needs, most of the time. For me, I probably use a 5 wt the same way, in terms of multiple rods. I have about 5 or 6 5 wts...
