Good Lord! A 'sulking Scott' has got to be someone to be

avoided at all costs.

If you're looking for a wonderful rod in the light end of the 8wt scale can't recommend the Sage 7136-4 more highly. The (again repeating myself here) designation says seven, but it (the "green" ones) are a light wt 8. Heaven to cast, will handle fish far beyond what I would have thought (25# King Salmon kept the rod flat to the water for longer than I would have liked) but still slid the fish onto the beach ... to be released.

If you're 'interested' I can get you a custom made one for far less than the $ required by Sage. Or if you've got a local rod builder, have him/her make one up for you. Don't think you'll ever be disapointed.
Fred
