  1. Planning to keep overall # the same (or maybe increased)

    I was actually planning to keep the same number of guides, but reduce the number of traditional bent wire snake guides and increase the number of guides with an SIC insert. Sorry for the poor...
  2. Traditional Snakes vs. Insert on Salt Water Rod

    Hi Friends - It's been too long since my last post. Fortunately or unfortunately I haven't spent nearly as much time in front of the computer...

    That looks almost exactly like an HI Governor. I've actually had three of those and they all look exactly like that...minus the whole "western special" part. I also recall the HI rods having a...

    Hey Jeff
    I did something similar last summer. I would suggest the middle fork (where I was) or the south fork. We were technically in the great bear wilderness, not the national park. These are...

    I don?t think that they do?at least not often. Trout can?t perceive detail like we can. I heard Gary Borger use the following analogy. A hawks vision is 300x more detailed than a humans, hence its...

    Re: General 4wt question.

    Dollars to Donuts says it's probably that DT line. Try it out with a WF and I bet you will get the distance back. After you perhaps prove it to yourself though...put that DT back on and lawn cast...

    Re: Trout Smart?

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I didn't even think about the local opportunities! I'm trying to get a group of friends invested in doing this every year. I think, for some reason, that doing...

    Hey Jeff

    Quote Ending

    Re: Rod/Reel for Salmon Fishing

    A 4wt two hander would be pretty intense. I just want to try out the two tip models. They have one tip for presentation, and one for (i guess) high line speed. I suppose the latter would be a bit...

    Rod/Reel for Salmon Fishing
