My buddies and myself all believe that casting a line on a new rod is the best way to dial it in. To that end between us, we have amassed quite a collection of long belly, mid-belly, Skagit and Scandi lines between us. New rods result in mini-claves where everyone gets together and using tables as a starting point, rods are cast with various line combos. Its fun, we get to try a lot of rods and lines, and the coffee tastes better after a bit of exercise.
