    T&T makes wonderful rods, but the price seems a bit high for a rod of this age, the reel and accessories notwithstanding. If it were me, I'd look around for a newer, 4-piece version.

    Sage TXL

    Anyone fish the Sage TXL rod, specifically the 2wt. model? I'm wondering how this rod's action compares to the SLT.

    Thanks,

    I'm with Bamboozle. I don't have any room in my car, what with my beer and whisky. Fishing rods are usually relegated to the back seat or trunk, while my spirits are never out of reach.

    If it's in any kind of functinal condition, I'd get it if you need it. The Gunnison was, in my opinion, the very best reel Ross ever made. Shame on them for discontinuing it!

    Hi Okie,

    Try the Lower Mountain Fork River for brown trout. It's probably a 3-hour drive from Tulsa, but it's a much more pleasant and scenic fishery than the Lower Illinois. Better trout...

    I like old blues (Robert Johnson; Mississippi John Hurt, etc.) or jazz. Sometimes I can listen to older rock, or older country, but never contemporary country.

    Mostly I like jazz and blues.
