6126-3B for Native Fish Society
I have a Sage 6126-3b 'brownie'. It's a custom build, not factory. I had a new middle AND tip section rolled by Sage and wrapped at the local flyshop. The butt section is original, the tip & middle are shiny and new. The action is full-flexing and will bend right to the cork with a Skagit setup in the upper 500gr range. If you are struggling with top-hand dominance in your casting, this would be a good rod for you. It was the first rod I owned that 'told' me to pull with my lower hand. In contrast to other tapers, I could really feel myself loading the rod from the butt. When I did go with a nice, relaxed stroke it was very effortless to cast and a lot of fun. If touch & go casts are your thing, lighten up the line and I'm sure she'll sing for you.
I would like to part with this rod in the same fashion I'm parting with my Hugh Falkus book. I'm looking for $150 to be donated to the Native Fish Society. The donation can be in your name and is tax-deductible. I'll pick up the shipping charges. My hope is that there is more than one party interested in owning this rod and helping NFS out. The individual that offers the highest donation by April 15th will get the rod.
Additional Note: Just to clarify, if you would like to make a donation 'offer' or 'bid' for the rod, go ahead and post it right here to the thread. That way, everyone will know who is interested and where they stand. It's really no different than a basic auction. My hope is that this format would get a decent donation for the Native Fish Society and get us thinking about other ways we can help out.
