Gear Review: Sage Method 6126

By: Nov 19, 2013 | Author: Tucker Ladd
The Six weight with the Heart of an Eight Weight By Reid Baker Over the last several years I have cast a wide variety of spey rods in various sizes, shapes and makes and I had a pretty good idea what I liked or disliked in a 2 handed rod.  Spey rods are built for power and if using good--or in my case adequate-- casting techniques, they are the perfect tool for the job when it comes to swinging flies for anadromous fish.  At 12-17’ long, they’re going to move some line,...

Montana Road Trip’in: Part II

By: Nov 15, 2013 | Author: Tucker Ladd
Tucker did a pretty good trip outlining the first half our trip to Montana.  There were a few details that were left out that are worth sharing. After departing Denver we quickly realized there was something wrong with the Penske Van: it would not exceed 70mph.  “I think it must have a governor,” Rick suggested. “Why don’t you google ‘How to disable a Penske Governor’”, I suggested. “I found something on wiki.answers.  It says...

With our Consumer Show season right around the corner, we needed to address some critical issues concerning our show booth; i.e. replacing the main wooden structure that has become a serious liability hazard over the past few years.  A quick call up the Jim Adams of Adams and Sons Fixture Company in Bozeman, MT (the original owner/builder of our show booth) quickly turned into an offer we couldn't refuse.  We transport our old booth up to Bozeman, and Jim would happily trade us...

Fly Fishing Report: The South Platte River in November

By: Nov 08, 2013 | Author: Tucker Ladd
Flows on the South Platte River near Deckers have been on the rise.  We were able to fish the river right around 120 CFS and the water clarity was excellent.  Flows have since bumped up to 180 CFS.  We could spot fish in a few of the runs and fish were actively feeding.  We chose to focus on finding small pockets of slower moving and stayed away from some of the bigger more popular runs.  Make no mistake, even in November, Deckers can be a pretty popular place on a...
