    Re: Sunglasses/brands

    Love my Rx Costa Del Mar 580g. I have the Copper base, green mirror 580 glass.

    I think they are more important to the trip than which fly rod I might choose, or the flies or anything else.

    I sure like the vibe of Santa Fe. Not bitter cold in the winter and at 7,000' + asl not quite so blazing hot, relatively low humidity at any rate, in the summer. Great place for walking, great...

    Re: surf rod help

    I went surf fishing last Saturday on the other side of the gulf. I use my 2 7’6” G.Loomis Short Stix most of the time. Occasionally, I’ll even use my fiberglass CGR rods. Here, it’s not a blind cast...

    I’m usually fishing my 5/6 weight or 7/8 weight CGRs for bass. The worst fly I’ve used as far as cast ability is one with a long strip of rabbit zonker and a large lead dumbbell. The fly might be 6...
