    I have the 450 Honryu. It took me some time to warm up to it. It felt just a bit tip heavy, but the more I cast it the less bothered me. Having become more proficient with long line techniques,...

    I was back at the same hole yesterday. If not for an ill-timed conference-call (30 min wasted, sitting on the bank watching trout frolic right in front of me) and the way a 14' rod catches the...

    I found the missing piece of section #5 on a later outing. The break mid section was clean. The break at the junction had a bit more of a tear than a clean 90 degree shear. The #6 section that split...

    I've been fishing the AirStage in some tricky winds at my max range. I'm targeting a pool of increasingly educated brown trout that can be found sipping something from the surface most days. I've...

    Deer hunting: I'd see > 50 as we left our suburban home before dawn for the woods on 1st day of Deer season. Usually the only deer I'd see that day.

    I have only recently began casting longer lines. In the beginning controlling a fish on a short line was hard enough... then at some point it got really easy. The SP 450 with a 4.5m Midi line was my...

    So I got the replacement #5 section... on Thursday. Taking a break from the things I should be doing, I went back to the same hole. First cast, I almost tempted a brown to take my fly, but he refused...

    I took some of the broken pieces and tried snapping them with my hands... they break pretty easy... Easier than a pencil. The AirStage is clearly pushing the limits of how light you can make a 390cm...

    So something I don't like about the AirStage 390: the part where I snapped it in half.

    I was fishing in gusty conditions, in full sun, casting to dozen or so feeding stocked trout in a large slow...

    I heard about tenkara in late April. Since the start of May I've fished only tenkara, and only with flies I've tied. I've been out fishing >100 days since then. I fish mostly close to home...

    Damn. I spent too long working on a reply... it was cast into the void when my session was redirected to the login.

    Anyway: I have a Kitoyaki 27, a Nissin SP 450, and a Diawa 43MF. My uncle bought...
