Just got your message
Take Ed up on his offer. If you go at it on your own at this point, you could find yourself years behind on the learning curve if you line the rod wrong. How do I know? I bought rio midspey, for my 12'6'' rod, to learn on (I can cast the setup now, but it's not easy). I thought I had everything figured out, and went with it. I literally set my casting back years.
Talk to people, try some lines, get some pointers--you'll be fishing a lot sooner.
Plus, Ed rules, and you're missing out if you live in Bellingham and don't hang out with Ed.
bass turds is a moron
"you're missing out if you live in Bellingham and don't hang out with Ed."
I don't know about that...more like losing a bet. Thanks for the kind words, DD.
ok breaking news the skagit max 550 is my go to,
Did u have a 525 before
I still have it
Is it any different from the 550 Skagit Flight? I had one of those for my TR7 once and thought it was terrible...could not throw a tight loop, or any decent looking/feeling cast to save my life. However, RIO does claim that everything spey is "new and improved." I can't say I'm not curious.
Skagit max now has a super duper fantabulous taper now
I wish it had the super duper fantabulous taper back when I first started trying to line that rod. I'm pretty set with the 540 Compact now...I'd still like to check it out.
