A question for Captain Ray
I read that you bought one of the new Sage reels. Why?
I was going to e-mail you privately, but got to thinking that you are a very educated man in fly gear (even though you haven't been an actual guide for 40 years...that one still cracks me up). At any rate, a gear review from you is news everybody could use.
Ray, I'm looking to purchase a new reel for my #8 GLX that you also recommended. I'll be using this rod all over the South Pacific and Texas Gulf when I'm not using my #10 GLX/Riptide combo. I want one that will still be working flawlesly when I come back to Newport in 2005.
One of the other questions is who makes the new Sage reel?
