The sockeye counts have really skyrocketed the past 5-7 days, it will be interesting to see if there is any change in status. Unless I am reading the counts wrong, the estimated cumulative...

Good discussion. Were you using floating lines and no tips? I can't tell from the writeup above; I find that often a longer belly line on a certain rod can feel great with one setup but if you want...

The MODs fish differently depending on the specific rod. I have fished the MOD 6130 a lot over the past few years, both winter and summer. The action is very well suited to floating line work, and...

I fish my GASS 9116 all the time. Itís incredibly light in hand and extremely strong. I donít believe loop makes that rod in the second series, but instead a 8116.

Donít underline it if you want...

I had the pleasure of fishing the Matapedia (Glen Emma) for three days last year in early June. I can tell you what the guides think there; they are absolutely hunting moving fish at that time. ...

Scott rods are a very interesting topic. I first learned my casting on the ARC series and still fish the 1287, 1308, and 1196 all the time. Those were great rods that still fish great with Skagit...

The Sage One 7136 is one of the best rods that Sage has ever made imho; I don't sense any real upgrade in that weight with the X. Defn get it. I like mine with a 575 or 600 Skagit Max and Heavy MOW...

These are nice rods. But, the Grey line was far more expensive at the time and was the precursor to the GASS rods, right?

Is this the first series yellow (more matte blank, no brown wraps) or the second one (brown wraps)? Both are good, just trying to be specific since there are no pictures.

I second the recommendation on the Sage One 7116. I've been using it a lot the past few years, and it can throw anything from T14 to floating lines and can land large steelhead. For me it's landed...

I have the 1308 and I have been getting used to it. Itís heavier / bulkier than I expected, and needs to bend pretty deep in the blank. It needs a relatively smooth stroke. For a while I thought I...

These boots are really heavy and soak up water like crazy, so they are even heavier on the walk out. They also leave puddles of water inside the boot (no drainage holes, which confounds me).

I was just there last year; your 7's and 8's are fine. Nothing wrong with a 9 weight too. I felt like I had plenty of rod with my Sage X 7120 even though I was there early and the fish were clean...
