When the river hasn't been blown, I've been out looking for some early season fish. No luck so far, except for a decent bass yesterday that had me thinking it was a steelie for about five seconds.

I've been using the NRX 15' 10/11 with a 450 Rage head and a 105 grain 15' tip from a 9/10 Delta Multi-tip. I'm treating it as if the Rage + sinktip is a 45' 555 grain shooting head. It loads the rod deeply and goes really well. This is probably going to be my sinktip rig for this rod for the season.

For the big rod fans out there, the Rage plus a light tip is definitely worth trying. The loop shape and turnover is very smooth as the tip effectively extends the front taper by 15'. Just remember to add the tip weight to the Rage head to match it to your rod.

The rig the bass came on was a 15' Type 3 tip, 13' FC leader and a Weamer.

What are the advantages over just using the whole delta multi-tip system? Smaller D-loop for less backcast room?
Basically that and a bit more punch in windy conditions. I also tend to wade deep in some places and the shorter head works better there as well, though the Delta would not be a problem as I've fished Deltas there for years. I also happen to like the NRX with a shooting head.

The water was up yesterday and my butt wasn't that far from the trees.
