RE:Sage 6 wt?

Terry --

Man you are opening up a major can of worms (err...RODS) on this

I agree that 5wt is probably your best all-around trout rod...depending
on what type of fishing you plan to do either 8.5' or 9' -- that said,
I am personally leaning more and more towards shorter/slower rods for
my trout fishing.

Water type, fly type, etc. all play a role in rod selection...and there are tons
of variables. It makes a great deal of sense to cast as many varied rods
as you can at the shows this winter/spring and see what suits you.

fwiw, i have a sage ll that you're more than welcome to "test drive" sometime...
