    I cast a friends 7134 yesterday, third cast I launched it across the river with a good tug on the drag at the end. Walking out of the water I thought, Man, I shouldn't have done that.

    I just realized that Burkheimer is an exception to the "I before e" rule.

    BTW, love my 7133.

    I said the same thing about the Miser Ed had up there. How did the rest of the day go?

    No kidding, same thing happened to me. Tried a friends burkie and I had a 8142 a few months later and hope to get a 7133 or 7134 if uncle sam is kind to me this year. My advice is to turn down offers to try the single handers. I tried one and now own a 489 and a 595. I love my burkheimers.

    Chris, I have a 7133-3 that you're welcome to try sometime.

    BTW - the kid is probably redshirting up at SFU but is 6-1 wrestling unattached so far this season. Really hoping to get her into the OTC development camps starting in Feb.

    Sashjo - just remember "Eisenhower's Niece" and and you should be good and the sound of the ei/ie is a giveaway almost always.

    I'd love to go watch her wrestle sometime, when is their next home match? It's only about an hour from my house, and I love Vancouver.

    Probably next season since she's redshirting. She's just been wrestling in senior open tournaments and informal duals. The team has some stuff right after the holidays but I doubt she'll wrestle unless someone gets hurt. I'm almost positive she could squeak out an AA this season but she wouldn't be a high-podium threat. With a year in the weight room and her current training partners, who knows... The girl below her is #3 for the US Nat'l team and the girl above her is #1 for the US (and world silver medalist) plus a room full of top Canadians. She's definitely in the right spot and I have more time for fishing!

    I'll let you know if anything interesting comes up.

    Now if she'll just stop saying "eh?'

    Saturday was even windier than Friday and there was a bit of debris dodging going on with the river at spate. That said, we had an even larger turnout than Friday and a whole lot of fun.

    So great to meet you and your crew Jason. You guys are welcome up here anytime. Paul still has me cracking up.

    Funny thing about these rods...they get you after a bit...My first one I broke the tip on and was some bummed, talked to Nate down there and he hooked me up with a 7133...I've fished that rod and caught steelhead on rivers all over Wa. and B.C. , I have no problem with it where fish could go 20lbs...the 8133 is just a sic rod as well...Hard to believe it's an 8wt and butter smooth to cast and fish all day...

    Lately I've been thinking about trying the big sticks again..(I've never enjoyed um that much which is why I mainly fish the 7133)..got the new 8152 burkie..the boys down there took care of me and got me one quick, so I could try it out on the big river...that rod is just ridiculus...light in the hand, casts a mile...hooked it up with a cut back carron line so I can use light tips if need be and I'm back to trying to rail myself in on the distance thing...

    Too many nice rods..can't fish um all!!!

    Would you mind giving a bit more info on the modified carron that you are throwing on the new 8152. I'm pretty interested in that rod and haven't seen anything yet but comments on the next cast lines with it.
