My 9140-3 sits ready to do duty. I have many, many rods to choose from (sometimes it feels like too many), but every once in a while I break the 9140-3 out - then I wonder why I don't fish it as a first choice. Then of course, I take out a different rod the next day :confused:

As for my 10151 and 10160, I have the CND 15'6" Salar and !6'7" Thompson Specialists which are so superior that I am seriously considering getting rid of the 2 big Sages!

I still love my Sage 7136 for summer work :smokin: .

Let us know when you put the Sages on sale

That 10151 should be perfect for me here in Sweden. Let me know when you put it on sale :)

tell us more about CND rods

Kush,

Maybe I should be asking about CND rods before wanting to buy your Sage. I see that there is a little mention if it on the Speypages, but google failed to produce any pages in English.

Where did you get yours and do you have any links on them?

After a search I found the forum thread on CND rods at
http://www.flyfishingforum.com/flytalk3/showthread.php?s=&threadid=8720&highlight=cnd*+spey

or if you prefer a shorter link then: http://tinyurl.com/7f31


many thanks
Guy

Kush, line for 7136?

Kush,

What line do you use for the 7136? It is a very different rod from the CND's you mentioned.

Will CND have something on the order of the 7136 with a little more power?

What distance do you fish with the 7136?
Thanks,

Guy,

The CND's I mention will be available very shortly. PM me if you want a little more info.

Ted,

I use a light Speydriver line, custom built on the original Derek Brown model - it is a great combo!

The 7136 is quite different from the CND Specialists which are state of the art Japanese aero-space graphite, as well as cutting edge in design. However, the CND entry level rod - the Expert and the higher modulus Custom II's are actually quite similar to the old Sage's action. In fact, at the Fall City Clave I cast the 14' Expert with the Speydriver - it was SWEET! the Custom being a bit quicker is a little less reminiscent of the 7136. CND also has a 13' 8/9 which I have not yet fished - but is presently sitting at my house begging for some acton!

As for distance, I don't try to fish too far out (otherwise I'd go with more stick), on the Bulkley/Morice most of the fishing is 20-80' tops, though I can manage 115' or so when I'm trying to show off.
