Opps, duplicate post.
Go to Cabela's web site ...punch in Pflueger Summit and you will see the fly reel mentioned. This is the only place I have seen/heard of it.
See lots of input since I first posted. But try some one different ones before you buy at a local fly shop that allows try outs.
Have to admit to feeling a bit 'silly;' their catalog came in yesterday's mail .. and guess what ......:hmmm: Sheesh. Rather a nice looking 'bit o' kit.'
OK, Went to the Tolt and threw a line around for a bit with a friend and Aaron. What a nice guy, free class, his equipment and did I mention the class was free! I really think I need to take another class though. I felt a little awkward and by the time I started to get the hang of the basic cast, my toes separated from my feet, good thing I have glue at home.
The rod we casted that day was a 13' and some change, I think it was an 8 or 9 wt. There is some serious work ahead, as far as me learning to cast a spey right, but I think it's an easier cast then slinging an 8 or 9 wt single handed rod.
Philster, Thanks again for the offer, I didn't pm you because I see another deserving soul got it. But thanks again.
I think if Aaron is going to teach me to cast I'll see what he has for sale first then make a decision, did I mention the class is free! :thumb:
Aaron's pedigree is pretty rich in Spey Casting. Check out Mike Maxwell's book for a glorious shot of his sultry mug:thumb: He truly has forgotten more than most will know...
philster - that wasn't very nice of you to be such a tease to frank
