Re: Fenwick Streamflex Plus 10' 3 wt and a cast of two wets

How do you like that Rio SHS 3D line? I’ve got the Streamflex Plus 4wt and was eyeing the Rio SHD WFF line in a 4wt. Do you think the 3D is better for swinging soft hackles than the WF? Oh, absolutely. It's really my favorite line for swinging. I've got it in 3,4, and 6 weights. Nice slow swing, an...

Re: Shoulder problems = new rod

I had that same rod. I really liked a 5wt. Wulff Ambush and 5ft. Polyleaders.

Re: Switch Rods ?

You might want to consider the Rio Single Hand Spey. It comes in both floating and sinking. I use the 3wt. 3D sinking on my 10' 3wt. Orvis Recon, and the 6wt floating with a 5' sinking polyleader on my 3wt. Redington trout spey. Both for swinging pairs of small wets.
