I am from Sweden and wright english as i speak it ,sorry.
I am going to build 2 or 3 new rods for flyfishing in tropical water .Planing a trip to
Los Roques and need new rods.Visit Tobago 3 weeks febr-march 2006 and it was difficult to fish in the strong wind who always is there, hade to "press and pump" the line out in the wind.The rods i hade was DC FT wf 7 and 8 and SA Mastery Saltwater-Saltwater.Need rods who loads with shorter line,you cant have to mush line outside .Did oversize the rod with 1 size of the line. The leader i use was 8-10f , tied with Lefty Kreh formula .Allso need a new line , was thinking of SA Mastery Salwater
Redfish. My casting skills is a 6+
The blanks i am looking on now is Sage Xi2 , CTS Affinity S and S XF, TFO TiCrX . Size wf8 , wf10 , wf12 .
Nedd some input of ideas and tought.
Thanks in advance . kentP
