    I have the Simms G3s. Have no experience with any of the others, so I can't compare. But I love the G3s. They fit well and are comfortable. Have a wide belt with a sturdy plactic buckle that's...

    I had and tried a 6wt switch rod briefly, and came to suspect the "switch" concept is highly overrated. You can cast them overhead, but, believe me, you don't want to. People may or may not find a...

    I haven't cast the G, but yes, I would say the A4 is medium-fast.

    Don't let me turn you off on the Response. It struck me as a really nice rod at that price point. It's just the difference between the fast and more moderate action. And I was casting 6 wts rather...

    I cast the A4 and the Response 6 wts at the Denver fly fishing show. I wouldn't say I cast them side by side, though. As has been pointed out, the main difference is that the Response is a faster,...

    From the report: "We refuse to test any private labeled rods (Ex. Cabelas, LL Bean, Bass Pro Shops etc)."

    I've got rods at both the higher and more moderate price points, and I've cast a lot more. My observation is that the top-of-the-line rods are better. To me they feel lighter, crisper, and have a...

    Unless you're stripping streamers or wets on a tight line, if you're waiting to feel the strike, you're missing 80+ percent of them. You should be *watching* the fly (dry), indicator or line/leader...

    Don't really know. I always tied and fished the plain Pheasant Tail without adornment. It worked. Don't know if adding a bead or flashback would work better. I wouldn't get too fancy.

    Keep the Pheasant Tails sparse and skinny. Might include some #20s. It's a great river. Hope he has a good time.

    I'm just suggesting that maybe the guy Ducksterman saw on TV misspoke (or Ducksterman mis-heard). To each his own, but I'm not spraying stuff like that on my good waders.
