    Eldermike, great post glad you had a good time. Enjoyed your pics.
    Thanks.

    That redington rod is a good one indeed. I think any well designed 6 or 7 piece travel rod will cast well. I would not keep a rod that felt clubby, life is to short to fish with a club.

    Nice bass Mike! Especially on a 4 wt! I don't fish for them much anymore, but do get into the everglades for them a few times a year on windy days, but use a 7 wt.

    I had a bonnevile 650 for a fishmobile when I was younger. It got into places jeeps couldn't go.

    Thanks for the picture of the big mamma bass. Got me fired up for a trip to my favorite bass spot.

    Cheers,
    Jim

    My first scooter was a 650 Triumph B, 1968 if I remember right. They still make that bike but with more CC's and better quality control.

    Ok so my last bike went away about 4 years ago but this thread still got me to "needing" another travel rod. Have they really gotten that much better? Stumbled onto a 60% off deal on a leftover Cortland 444 outfit. Rod was a CL model in 8'. 6 pc 4wt. Being a fan and owner of several other 4 pc CL rods I took a chance. Wow, I have to say I was amazed at the rods lightness and smooth action . it really felt as good as most 4 pc rods I've fished and better than some. Took it to the family pond to "slime it" and was not disappointed. The water ahd dropped to near nothing but there were still some bluegills within 50-60' of my casting spot. Casting was smooth and decently accurate with a # 8 BHWB on the provided 444 classic Wf4F. Distance was respectable as well. Best of all, it "felt good" in the hand. Especially with a vibrating gill on the other end.
    Guess you can teach an old dog new tricks!

    Nice bass, Mike! Never leave home without a rod, that's my view.

    Good posts guys!

    To sum it all up, the best rod you will ever own is the one you have with you when a chance to fish comes up.

    Well said.....

    It's not what I catch when I'm fishing, it's what I lose that matters to me...
