No one will discount that eggs and beads are more successful, BUT - once you get a fish swinging, you probably won't want to get one another way. It's kind of a quality vs quantity argument and I...

Same thing happened to me, only no explanation. Over 2 weeks I asked a question, then followed up twice on it and after the 2 weeks just got a refund with no explanation. I would have been fine with...

Man how I'd love a crack at clearing out a bunch of stock to "help with the process" - I'd stock up. Hopefully someone gets things moving again.

I get the best distance when I knot a rod-length of 8lb mono to the back of whatever head I'm tossing. Don't tie it to anything, that creates too much drag through the air. It's a little challenging...

I landed my first steelhead on a 4100 Z-Axis. ((For the record, I don't advise anyone to EVER do that!!)) A 6 switch is about comparable to a 9ft 8 or 9wt, which is plenty good. Have fun. I pray for...

FS Pair of light Rio heads - 375 iFlight and 275 (I forget the series)

I don't have rods for these two anymore so they gotta go. I bought each as a "used one day and passed on it" and never got around to setting up outfits before things moved on. I'm throwing in a new,...

This reel has the square-toothed drag plate, btw, so it is readily convertible from left to right and vice versa.

Single-hand, 11-13 weights. I had it on the derriere of a DeathStar and it worked like a champ.

I was a floor peeler too til I got sick of all those gaddang knots that would inevitably occur after a loop got somewhere it oughtn't.

To strip a reel, I put an empty line spool on a quarter inch...

I really, really like my 5126 ONE. Light enough to high-stick nymph with (not that I would ever do such a thing), but also tosses a 350-375 Flight and T8 MOW really nicely. It bombs a 4/5...

Tapping to the top.

I talked to Bob last night about a 2 weight for my local trout streams, I'll be grabbing one in the near future but we also discussed bringing this back up front for everyone.

I have an Airflo Gen 2 510gr that's a bit too much for my switch. The webpage says the head is 24 feet, I thought it was 23. It has one 6-hour day of use on it if you're interested.

A few more grains will always give you a little more room to play, but if you ordered the 3 and want the 3, then return the rod and get the 3! Bigger rods are less fun with smaller fish. We all know...
