I have two 6 wt. Gary La Fontaine fly rods(The Stealth 3690 H taper series) and they are by far the best distance casting rods which I have used in 70 years of fly fishing. I use them for fly fishing on saltwater of Puget Sound. They are a moderate fast action rod and will easily cast + 90 ft. of line with a double haul if you are a good caster. They cost about 1/3 of most Sage rods and load extremely well. These rods are by far the best rods which I have ever cast.I’m fairly new to fly and am not familiar with him and his legacy. Are his rods well thought of? Our Project Healing Waters program recently received two from the family of a gentleman who passed away. We couldn’t find very much info on them.
I love that book! Going to take it off the shelf and read it this weekend. (Again)One guy I would have enjoyed meeting. Quite the kidder as I understand. Fly Fishing Mountain Lakes blew me away. Loaned it out, never came back. There must have been some crazy f’n campfires.
