i love the 8wt SLTs because i use them for dry fly salmon/steelhead fishing. Mainly have them for atlantics, but they are also good for summer fish. They are the best rod i have found for big fish on dry flies. And much more sensitive than the XP. I can use it in any situation where i could use a faster rod too with little to no detriment. They only time i wouldnt use an SLT is throwing tips.


i also forgot about my dan craft 10' 10wt two handed switch rod i built. :
now if the forum will let this one post go through... been having problems with a busy server message???

hey Tuna,
how do you like that 6wt Marryat? is it the Evolution? i used to have a sweeeet Marryat 3wt 8' Packer, but i sadly traded it to a guy for a nice 4 season Outdoor Research goretex pack tent. a buddy of mine had the 7wt Evolution and i thought it was the nicest casting 7wt i've ever touched.
just curious about the 6wt...

Yes, it's the Evolution. I really like it. I believe it's rated medium fast, but it's fast enough for me. I got it in a trade w/ Porter a little over a year ago and actually got the most use out of it this past fall and winter nymphing for steelhead. It performed admirably. Needless to say, I feel pretty good about the trade.

In Graphite, all but one custom made by self. A couple on Sage, also a bunch on Dan Craft Blanks, one Forecast blank, three Loomis blanks, two unknown blanks, and one store bought Redington. Total of one 2wt, two 3wts, three 4wts, five 5 wts, two 7 wts, four 8wts, four 9 wts, one 10 wt, one 12 wt and one super heavy nasty lifting rod for tune...maybe a 15wt?

Two Spey rods, one built on a Loomis blank and the other on a Burkheimer.

Matched set of three Orvis cane rods, one Phillipson cane and one very nice cane rod from Germany that I received as a gift.

One Phillipson glass rod, three old Fenwick glass rods, two store bought and one self constructed.

That's about it.....I think....I have a bunch of blanks still sitting around to build when I get time. I'm sure I'll have some time when I get moved up to Spokane next year...dang, am I EVER looking forward to that.
