    I didn't see any mention of the optional extension arm for the Danvise. I recomend it for the extra space it provides, making the vise easier and more comfortable to use.

    Ottodita,

    You can use that rod for trout. I used an 8wt rod on trout for a while because it was the only 9' rod I had. I cast flies as small as #22 using that rod, and caught some nice trout.

    I've seen references to them being used for fishing, though I have no experience with them.
