    Hey Stonefish I dont know what it is about the TiCrX but wow the first time I picked it up I really like how stiff it is. I work my arm/shoulder less with the stiffer rod. I like that, Ive dislocated my casting shoulder too many times in my younger age and it can really start aching after a few hours of casting into a killer head wind. I cant imagine what an Airflo 40+ extreme distance line would do on it. I can cast a crappy Cabelas wt line a good ways.

    Lets see I caught Chinook, Chum, Sockeye, Rainbow, Lake Trout, Arctic Grayling on rod and reel and had shots at northern pike and huge humpbacked whitefish

    I caught a cisco and a lamprey in a net too... Suprisingly no dollies yet... Or humpies...

    Chums in AK run from May to October depending on the watershed. The river I was on peaked about the second week of July...

    My first one of the season last year came on my 5wt fishing for cuttys in the South Sound with a tiny shrimp pattern, I saw backing within a very short time. Took me probley 10min to land it on 10lb seagar, very fun but I brought my 8wt the next time.

    anything chartruse in a #4-6, light weighted or none, depending on the depth. I'm gonna try different colors this year in cherise,purple,etc. XL Bead chain heads are the ticket for me.
