Greetings,

Stumbled upon the forum and had to join in with this discussion. I'm with Sportsman on this: twenty years with an Orvis "One Weight" (7'6", 1 3/8ozs) on rivers and lakes convinces me that light is right and far more fun, albeit in the right conditions: I wouldn't fish for Permit on it! Heaviest rainbow to date must be around 3.5lb on a 2lb tippet. It shoots almost as well as a five weight with a little double-hauling but I've replaced the original line with an Airflo 2 weight now and it seems to work even better. Finding a reel to balance is a bit of a problem!

Looking forward to joining in.java script:void(0)
Cool

Hi habilis, nice to hear from you, especially as you agree with me, not something that happens often on here :D
I have been toying with the idea of a 0/1 wt to use from the float tube. The place I buy my blanks from in the states does a 1 wt and I might just build one over the winter to use as a dry fly rod on the river Don next year :)
Regarding reels, I use a Pleuger Trion on the 4 wt which is fine, but would be a bit heavy for anything lighter, I'm hoping to aquire a Maryat CMS in the not too distant future :)

Hi both, :) . Your building a rod prompted me to dig out a near-perfect Hardy Favourite which requires a reel seat. Good job to while away the close-season. I've moved home several times with it and, yep, I've split it just above the cork. :( Add it to the museum?
