Yes Sean the price of an old Hardy is beyond my means. I was lucky that an old republican friend of mine that I used to guide gave me mine. He is dead now but I know of one republican who by the way claims he is no longer and I want to believe him except that he is buying old Hardy's at an alarming rate there fore I'm not so sure. But untill the republicans that fish exclusive rivers world wide stop buying up all the Hardy's on ebay you and I and many others will never afford one.

As for the line the double taper is correct. It would be an abomination to put one of those other types of lines on beauty. When you get your line you must come over and I will show you how to do the heat and dye thing. It is a secret process that I leaned from Craig and Jackie Mathews and John too. Hope no one thinks I'm a snob for not sharing but somethings need to be passed on quietly in true steelhead tradition one person at a time.

Looking forward to watching you fish a run with cane.
