I really like the fish head weights as you have on that top bugger.

Last year I tied up several Dover's Peach flies with the gold version of those instead of the cone head.

I agree with BMB that new generation glass rods are one of the most exciting things in the gear realm. I've always liked slower action rods.

I read the email again and noticed the increase won't occur until July. :biggrin: One year respite.

Perhaps I should still do the $36 NC annual with $33.5 TN 3 day out of spite. :p

I was advised to keep the leader length the same as the rod length and it seems to work. I'd stick with that length as long as you can get at least 3' of tippet to roll over with it. I'd grease the...

I'd suggest trying out a rod first. I bet you can bribe Bigsur with a trip to the Philips 66 food counter and a cigar to let you play with his rod. :rolleyes:
