    Hi all! My background is trout fishing in Northern California and I'm still learning a lot about WA and have no frame of reference for going after steelhead. Why not shorten the learning curve with a guide? I followed the advice that many of you have given re: steelhead guides on the OP and I...

    I am looking to book a solo trip to Alaska in late June. This will be my second trip to Alaska but it would be safe to consider me a newb to the region. I'm hoping for some recommendations to start inquiries. Here are my search parameters: Dates: late June, maybe squeaking into early July...

    I've had a 3wt blank sitting in the corner for far too long and I finally got off my butt and started working on it. Something I've always struggled with is holding the guides in place on the blank before I start wrapping them. I recall in the past cutting thin strips of masking tape to wrap the...

    Bought these new over the summer. Wore them four or five times and ultimately didn't like the fit. Love the lenses. Added a pair of Maui Jim's and Costas that fit me better and now these are the odd man out. No scratches. Very near brand new. Comes with box, paperwork, sticker, carrying case...

    Hi All, it’s been a while since I last built a rod and I’m getting confused with all the new guide options. In the past I have typically built my rods with single foot Fuji ring guides. Now I see at least three different types of rings being offered for these guides (SIC, Alconite, and Concept...

    Despite (mostly) diligent cleaning, the line guides on my rod are starting to get rusty and corroded. None of them have broken yet, but at least one looks close to it. The rod is a cheap intro Cabela's model, but a new one isn't in the budget just yet. Is there any way to repair them? For future...

    I'm trying to simplify life by getting rid of things I don't use. I found a small box of Rod guides. I'm not sure when I got these, as I don't wrap rods. They may have been my dads. Free to anyone who can use them. I'm in Seattle but I don't want to ship them. I can drop the off with Ryan's...

    I'm headed down to Sugarloaf Key for tje firdt time in a few weeks and was wondering if anyone has had much success in the DIY area of things, and also if anyone has any recommendations on guides. The going rate seems to be reasonable when split with a second angler, so I was just curious as to...

    I have a Sage 389LL blank that I've been waiting to build up- really 'til my rod building skills are somewhat decent. I really like the looks of agate stripping guides but worry about their strength and/or longevity. I'm not sold on agate for the Sage, either. Maybe agate strippers go better...

    Need some help....I moved from the Seattle area to Colorado two years ago and no longer have too many contacts in the Seattle fishing area. I have a friend and her family who want to send their dad up to Alaska for his birthday next year to go after Salmon. He is not a fly fisherman from what...
