    Steve, I expect a fully complimentary review of those free hooks I sent you...on every single website in the PNW, and a few in the Great Lakes region, to boot.

    You are now officially on "the take". :)

    I design some stuff, build some stuff, sell a lot of stuff...but strangely enough my strongest product loyalties come out when I talk about stuff that I don't make any money off of...I guess I'm subjectively very protective of the good money I spend on gear, but objectively critical of the very stuff I design and sell.

    Weird, but true.

    Fish on...

    Yeah, if your making a presentation and need a really long pointer.:rofl:

    Just getting your goat, Richard.:beer2:

    * For those unfamiliar, Richard and I have been going back and forth on the merits of RedFly rods for a long time now.

    Gee Todd, you expect I can be bought that easily eh? I think those 2 dozen hooks are the first industry freebie I ever got. Well maybe the Fenwick Spey rod blank prototype that Jimmy Green gave me after Fenwick had been sold off; not sure how that would count tho.

    How much do you cost?

    Hell, I've bought other government workers for far less...

    Well yeah, but state legislators are cheap. Everyone knows that.

    Sloan just need(ed) to pick the right one; obviously, don't let him do the picking.

    For the record, mine was a 5/6, and was the vintage when the Fuji reel seat was offered. Wasn't yours a 6/7?

    The RedFly2 is an extremely good budget/value rod. Listen to me now and believe me later . . . :thumb:

    That's not even apples and oranges; that's like comparing Rosanne Barr to Elizabeth Hurley . . .

    I miss IMX fly rods.

    I'm not on the take, as far as I know.

    If anyone is on the take with Ross Reels, please shot me a PM. I need your advice. :rofl:
    Thanks,

    I am not on the take, but can be bought, rented or sold.

    Hells bells, everyone knows flyfishing stuff isn't about catching fish, it is about catching fishermen. So the only real question is, "How do you like your chum?" - pun intended...
