    Default Favorite Rod you Seldom Fish

    Hi All,

    Don't know why I was thinking about this, but I was thinking about my favorite rod, and that I very seldom fish it.

    The rod is a Sage 389 LL, and I love to fish it. The problem is that being a 3 weight, it is difficult to use in the wind, and here in the Texas panhandle, the wind blows a lot of the time. It is also not a a good choice for throwing a large fly, and I fish a lot of streamers, some of which can be somewhat heavy. Consequently, if I think I will be using a fair size streamer at some point, or the wind is either blowing or the forecast is that it will come up, the rod stays at home.

    At any rate, I wish I could fish it more, but such is life.

    Do you have a favorite rod that you very seldom fish?

    Thanks and regards,

    Gandolf

    Sage 9', 5 wt., Z Axis, just too much rod for most of my fishing! Last time I used it was late September 2011!

    My 14' 8 weight RB Meiser two-handed rod. It's a beast of a rod, but it's really only applicable in a few situations.

    I have a Sage 696 RPL that's great for tossing big, bushy dries in the wind but it's a 2-piece and a pain to travel with so it mostly gets used for shad in the spring. Luckily, I'm able to use my father-in-law's (same rod) out here in MT.

    For me a 5 wt Sage SLT. It a beautiful rod for dry fly fishing. Hasn't seen much time on the water these past couple of years. I do take it out to the casting ponds to keep my casting rhythm in tune.

    St Croix Avid (gray blank) 8 1/2' 4wt. It is a 2 pc so for traveling purposes I tend to take my 4 pc rods. Still I will get it out a couple times a year and fish with it. This is a very nice casting rod and if I were limited to only one 4wt for the rest of my days, this would be it.
