I love my new 6wt. Hydros, but I've only gotten to fish it 4-5 times. I can't wait to fish it for the purpose intended(caprs)! ;Dgoodtimes said:5wt maybe a 6wt... General trout fishing mostly nymphing. I'm also looking at the hydros from orvis. I wanted to see if any one has experience with this long term.
I have fished that rod and it is nice for what it is intended to do (high stick, Czech nymph). It casts fine, but not really designed for graceful casting. Great rod and designed perfect for it's intention. That said, I would never spend a lot of money on a rod for high sticking or Czech nymphing because you wont be casting it much and really, if you are not casting, any broom handle will do.goodtimes said:Has anyone used the sage 99?
