The 7119 Sage Method is the closest rod in that category I'd consider do-it-all. It handles a large grain window and can throw anything. At 11'9 it's at the upper end of a switch rod from a length...

I purchased one of the 10150 F+ Evotecs on clearance and it's an absolute cannon. Don't buy this thing if you like a soft rod. My guess is they designed the "F+" version (I believe they also offered...

I have both a 63' and 54' equalizer. For now, I've left the 63' in tact, but I've turned the 54' into a multi-tip @ 15ft as you were inquiring about. Chopping at 15ft allows me to use RIO's 15ft...

So I contacted Sage, and much to my disappointment, they are not bringing back the switch lineup. I've cast a lot of Sage rods, and most are just OK for me...but the 7119 method is hands down the...

According to the Gaelforce site, the 73 and 83 will be available late September. Poppy still has the Clearwater Special listed on his site, but it's been removed from Gaelforce's...

+4, or 5 on the 510gr aerohead. That thing casts like a scandi (and isn't too much longer than one anyway).

Loop Evotec 10150 f+

I recently got a pretty screaming deal on this rod...it's one of their older models that went on clearance. This series of rods has either an "M" or "F" rating for medium or fast, but this particular...

Pretty fly for an old guy

I tied this for my father-in-law for his birthday, and even though I insist, he refuses to fish these. Given that, I was considering putting this in some sort of case/display for him. Has anyone done...

This is the pattern I've been tying up for salmonfly season. I don't tie these as skaters necessarily, but they do skate well when fished in that manner.

Sorry, I should have been more specific there. Permits are required for overnight backpacking trips into a large portion (not all) of the alpine lakes wilderness. You can day hike in the area all you...

I use a needle knot for this purpose (or a nail knot if you don't want to deal with the added complexity). You can connect directly to your slickshooter, or, if you want to change out your heads, do...

Red Headed Jocks

In the vein of Mr. “Jock Scott.” I’ve never tied this pattern, and I ended up taking some "creative liberties" (lack of skill, lack of material, forgotten material, etc…). One of these is for a...

Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride

As the winter season is coming to an end, my mind has wandered towards buggy flies and surfaced oriented fish. This guy ended up part muddler, part hopper, part caddis and part…frog. Steelhead will...

Circus Freak

This one ended up a bit different than I had originally planned. Pretty "colorful" if not a little gaudy...perhaps better for coastal streams. I ended up ripping the topping off riverside as it was...
