Lefty Sully, what about
That shows the Red.Fly 6-7 4 pc for $145 ??

Wow just looked at the Cabelas site. They only seem to have the Redington "Wayfarer" and "Nano Titanium". I'm going to get a decent rod either way.

Roop I LOVE the Silver Label rods.

When I bought what I refer to as my first REAL saltwater fly rod (after 6 years of messing around with a #11 LL Bean Guide noodle) my final decision was between the SL and the St. Croix LU.

Only went with the St. Croix because of a personality clash with the local Orvis guy.

Anyway - great deal, I love the 10' 7 weight, schoolie rod, great pond rod. Just say no, just say no, just say no.... :eyecrazy:

FYI - Smitty now carries Orvis as well, that guy has just about anything you could need for any budget.

sean You may also want to look around for the orvis silver label rods or tridents which are now being liquidated to make room for thier new series of rods.

I have the 7wt 9'6" silver label and it is now my primary rod for ocean salmon fishing. A very nice casting rod and is actually the same blank that is on a trident without the fancy components. The above lists the 10 foot 3 piece but the extra length is handy for float tubing. A good deal at $217.

These rods are much better in my opinion than the redington red starts or red flys.

I bought mine from here:

They have a decent selections of the 7 wts left and the pricing is better that Orvis.They also have a large selection of the tridents at 40% off:

9' 4pc. 7wt. it's not the redfly.

Roop My personal preference is for a slower rod for warmwater.

I find that I'm not trying to cast over 30' and that while I do toss an occasional 2/0 deer hair fly, tha majority of my flies are size 2 and under.

Lefty FWIW,

Cabelas has the full Redington line. They got the $95 Red-Fly rod, $160-ish Red Start, and new 4 piece travel rod in a "7-8" wt. for $145 (I believe these are also "Red. Fly". That sounds like the rod to try. IM6 too.

01-06-2002 07:35 PM
Lefty Guys thanks. Sounds interesting, and Redington is a company that really atracts me for this 7 wt. I'm always a little leary of a companies lowest product. So I would rather spend a few extra bucks and get the next model up. Since the show is so close, I'm going to look around see if I can get a bargain there too. I want a med fast to fast action. I know....kaching...kaching.

Roop Jim's 1/2 a step ahead of me...

Terry, Hoook & Hackle is selling Redington's Red Fly for $95. I think that's what everyone else is selling it for as well. You might get a break with them though.

jimS Lefty/Roop: checkout For $195 you can get an excellent 5-piece rod in a 7wt with a lifetime guarantee. This is what I would consider a fast action. Everything about it is upscale for that price. They have new lines of reels that are awesome for the price. A click/pawl reel that is machined for $79 in the 2/3wt. They also have a line of offset drag reels that are machines for $109.

As Roop knows they have outstanding customer service and it is one flyfishing company that is on the move to displace some of the traditional high-end manufactuers.

Lefty John: Hilarious!

Juro: No "training" rod for me, what do I look like the last one off the sandbar? Daiwa? Hey I got a Pflueger for you buddy

Roop: No blanks for me (yet). I like the prewrapped rods.
01-05-2002 10:33 AM
Roop Terry,

Check out the Hook & Hackle catalog.

I think one of their IM6 blanks like Jim is using would be great (for my tastes) and they are very cost effective. I believe you also get an additional discount for ordering on-line.

Personally I'm looking for a new reel for my 6 weight. My old SA series one is kind of LOUD. I need something more tranquil....

01-04-2002 11:07 PM
juro I sorta have three - one broken in the truck by my darling wife who took it along to the beach for the kids one day, another that is a fiberglas/graphite composite daiwa, and one graphite IM6 7wt that is really, the only functional option of the bunch.

So I don't want to see my only 'real' 7wt but you can have the daiwa. Actually, it casts sweet and makes a great training rod for anyone you would like to teach to cast.

striblue Ah Terry...Your picture? I think it rather crude of you to enter a photo of you sitting on... shall we say... a camp commode.
01-04-2002 02:38 PM
Lefty Hey there are other kinds of Bass in the world John, like Smallyoids. Geesh you Elbow-Centric guys.

C'mon, who's got a 7 wt. collecting dust? I need to get one cheap as I'm saving for a Carbon Fiber fiddle bow. Priorities man.

01-02-2002 10:13 AM
striblue Terry... you know we don't use 7 wts. in Chatham... come on ... you need th big rods... you know that.
