    Thanks, thought it looked a little different at first glance.

    that's one cold mother of a river..thought about it..didn't need to go too deep at first spot but a couple others we talked about would have needed to wade a bit and just gotten smarter as I've aged..

    Need to look up those olsons...sara's have sealed drags that whoop some ass when needed...

    I go to reel rehab classes....

    That river will shrink your member(ship) in mid August. Good move.

    Thats why I never wade deeper than my knees, solves the shrinkage problem

    looked up those olsons...Wow...drag version though is about twice the saracione...I have a hard enough time justifying the cost of my sara's...but take one apart and see how well their made and you know it's got the value....also, they take a pretty good beating and come out fine...
    Can't buy a reel and not fish it hard...otherwise no point for me....can't stand the thought of it just sitting there...
    never really liked the cascapadia but they are now down around 4-5 bones so if that was my budget I would start looking there...

    Kerry...I found that out too...fished the morning wet wading the Stilly...(in late july, early aug.) drove up and around and was poking around for some trout on the skagit...nut deep was NOT an option...ankle deep was all I was going and shivering like a school girl doing that..

    I am trying to get to an Olson someday. I think a nice reel is like driving a nice sports-car and now I drive a Audi. The Maserati is on the horizon some day soon.

    I find the Olsons to match up to the bead rig perfectly. Good call.

    I love this thread. Just because we are in a recession doesn't mean we have to participate!
