I'm sure you could do it. I just think it would be pretty brutal trying to constantly mend and high stick any rod longer than 10 feet.
I think I'd get a centerpin if I could.
Alright you have a deal. I will buy your switch rod.
Switch rod, line control = super long drifts and getting your beads down deep. You already have a single hand rod, what is the point of getting another? Personally I say fuck all that noise and get a raft, it'll open up a shit ton of water you haven't otherwise been able to access.
No single hander anymore, the cork on my old original broke off.
Was it not covered under warranty?
It was an old ww grigg 8wt that I bought a while ago. I could not get ahold of the company and the cost to put on a nice new handle reel seat and fighting butt was quoted more than the rod itself. I am going to try turning it into a wading staff since it was a 2 piece.
WTF? I thought you wanted to catch a steelhead fly fishing?
BTW, if the cork grip broke off your Grigg rod, it's not that hard to put on a new one for the cost of the cork. Are you at least half ways handy? Do you have a drill motor? A few scraps of wood? Anyway, an 8 wt isn't strong enough for a wading staff.
I just knew you were going to chime in eventually. I was thinking about the trap I was setting myself for creating this thread but oh well. When my email popped up and it said " Salmo_g has replied to your thread", I just said "god damnit" LOL.
Yes Mr,G I am very handy, I just lack the knowledge in fly rod repair, and from what I have seen so far it would cost atleast about 50 bucks to re-do the whole grip, reel seat, and fighting but section. I will get around to it eventually. Hey you never know,perhaps you would let me buy you a beer and you can show me how to do it.
Thanks for chiming in like always. LOL.
Mr G I do not choose to dignify that question with a response! LOL fuck man I am desperate.
I think craigslist has ads for that sort of thing.
This wa '06. That is a little while ago. At the time I had caught summer fish but not winters. That changed the next winter. My point is, that there is value in toughing it out, watching, learning, asking, being tough and flyfishing for them. There is no need to settle for a hooker.
I hear what you guys are saying I really do. I promise to keep at it with the swing but I guess I am just starting to have weak moments as I can start to see the end of the season on the horizon.
end of season wtf are you talkin about dan? winter steel is just around the corner, consider feb 15th the end for puget sound, and the 0p in march and april
