    Good info and opinions, as usual here. Not everyone can spring for a $70-100 line, especially for multiple rod weights. DaleW made some good suggestions about that. I would also suggest looking into...

    I read a piece by Mr. Harvey where he said he never used a tippet smaller than 4X. Hmmm. -Chuck

    Winston Passport rods

    Hi, folks. Cabela's seems to be clearing out their stock of Winston Passport rods. I'd be interested in a 4 wt., if it's a true 4. Does anyone have any experience with them? Thanks. Chuck

    Aw, it's all just in fun. A little ribbing is part of the "fraternity", isn't it? I put "fraternity" in quotes, partly because when Martha Young (Paul Young's wife) handed me her Driggs model rod...

    Welcome to world of cane, my friend. It's your first, but likely not the last! Re. leaders: I'm a believer that the leader should match the fishing at hand, not so much the length of the rod. I agree...

    About a dozen years ago, a friend had a 9 foot, 4-weight Sage rod. Don't remember the model. He was a pretty experienced fisher, and caster. He (and I) had a devil of a time loading that rod with a...

    Sorry, Buddy. I have to disagree with you. A tyro needs to have a line that is correct for that rod- or maybe a bit heavier, for starters. Then he/she can feel the cast so much better. I'm a pretty...

    Line weight rant

    I guess the AFTMA line weight standards are just so 20th Century. Don't need 'em anymore, apparently. Rio and Cabela's, among others, have some lines that are listed as being one line weight heavier...

    They are quite lovely fish foolers, Alan. You'll do well with them. I've noticed that traditional loch flies (bumbles, e.g.) are pretty heavily hacked. Any thoughts?

    Up to a point, I agree with you. But it is quite a bit easier for most flyfishers to deliver a fly more gently with a moderate, rather than fast, rod. It's the line speed that's a factor here. A...
