I think I have a bead on a 12 wt to borrow. don't know how many blue water trips I'll ever make, so don't really desire to purchase a rod. I have a BG-7 reel that I can load w/ running and backing plus a shooting head to cover that need tho... We'll see... Maybe Ebay Santa will deliver!!
The guys I'm going w/ have been going annually for the better part of the last 25 years... they have a pretty good idea what's going on, hoping we get lucky and everything is dialed in!!
Tie One On, and Tie Into One!!!
