    Re: 2020 Yellowstone Angler 5 weight Shootout

    I love how they (all of the testers who wouldn’t dare deviate from papa George’s preferences), all harped on the 590 Trout LL for having a “stiff” tip and heavy, unpleasant swing weight. It would be...

    Why not try the G series 906 since you seem to be a Scott fan? The Telluride guys have some great reviews of said rod on their website. Sage Trout LL might be a good choice. That is a rod that is...

    Re: New 5 weight
