New member "BC in it" Intro
Hello, My name is Bruce I live in Maple Ridge BC (Suburb of Vancouver) I grew up in the east kootenays. I have spent 3 years on Vancouver Island, 18 years in Oregon, and now in Vancouver area. I have fished everywhere I have lived except northern BC. All this time fly fishing (never owned anything but a fly rod) has always been with a single hand rod for 45 years!!! I am just now considering purchasing my first Spey rod!
I want to purchase asap. I'm looking at the Sage X 7130 but not too excited about the cost. I'm 52 years old now, I can afford it but don't want to waste it. Most of the rigs I have fished with since I was 6 years old was hand me downs from my three older brothers (stopping every 30 min to tighten screws on my reel or lose them forever, rod tips flying off, and lets not forget the bird nests I would get with cheap worn out line) I have good gear now but I want to treat myself and get the best. I'm sure there ought to be a very close second to the X that is more affordable? Any thoughts/feedback out there will be appreciated.
I am currently looking in the classifieds.
