    Yesterday I picked up my Sage One 6126 and this stick pretty awesome. Right away on the first cast all I could think was holly shit. Anyways I can't wait to get out and fish it tomorrow.

    I'm using the 385 steel head scandi and the 400 flight. Yesterday I just fished the scandi with an intermediate poly leader and a size 3 hair wing pattern I created to catch that fish.

    Spencer, do you post to the SpeyPages web board? Ask as it's 'all about 2-hander' rod fishing.
