    I recently purchased a rod with the sliding rings as well, the first I've ever owned like that. Mine has a cork reel seat, so perhaps that leads to better performance than what you've experienced,...

    I'm not sure if I'm following what steps you're performing, but if you're not doing it already, try grabbing the stocking foot by the heel and pulling them off that way. I lower my waders to a point...

    Idlerick is exactly right, the best stuff was the Sticky Weight and it went bye bye unfortunately. I tried almost every brand after its demise to find something that didn't have any of the negatives...

    Only you can decide of course, but I'll second (third?) the BVK suggestion. It's a very impressive rod at its price point. Amongst the higher end rods, I have cast and liked the Radian, Sage One and...

    I almost could have typed the challenge that I knew my comment would draw from you Byron, as I've seen that tendency on so many other threads. I stand by what I said. No I haven't cast all the high...

    I haven't and never will have occasion to cast all of those rods side by side, and doubt that I'd be very well qualified to judge them if I did. I've always found it to be an interesting read at...

    What constitutes "crowding" where you fish?

    I realize this is a question with no single right answer, but I find myself curious today as to other people's perspectives. I'm just a few hours removed from a trip to a local fishery where people...

    Well this winds up being a curious case of walking away impressed with a company and not inclined to buy their product at the same time. Kudos for the customer service with the original poster...

    I stretch mine out streamside, but I think if I were doing it like you are, I'd take a Sharpie and mark them before I hung them up the first time. Do it kind of like a Roman numeral system - use a...

    WTB Mad River Adventure canoe

    Long shot I assume, but looking to find a Mad River Adventure canoe for a reasonable price. I think I'd prefer the 16 foot model, but the 14 might work too. Willing to drive a little bit to pick it...
