    I also bought the 14 foot 8 weight in Post Falls - couldn't pass it up. I normally fish the Sage 6126 with a floating line, but thought this would be a good "big water" rod and for throwing sink tips. Anyone have a good line recommendation - either Rio or Airflo multi tips or a Skagit system?

    I've never tried it, but I would be willing to bet that Airflo Delta 8/9 would be sweet on that rod.

    Try PM'ing Evan Burk, I think he has that rod and can probably help. I casted his with his some sort of Skagit set up on it and it did pretty well, but it was 20F and snowing so the line was freezing to the guides with every cast and it wouldn't shoot the line so I gave it right back to him.

    See the "line recommendation" post. Got the recommendation the Red Shed.
