I've got a #7 11' switch rod, would like something a bit lighter in the hand and on the...
  2. Rods
    Just ordered the above. I know from reviews I've read that this is a fairly fast and powerful rod. It also seems it can deal with lines within a relatively wide weight range. I prefer a lighter load when casting and would be interested to know which shooting heads folk are currently throwing...
  3. Hairwing Fly Patterns
    Decided to have a wee meddle with this one. Went for the lighter blue body this time and changed the tungsten black cone for a lighter silver one. Also decided to thin the hackle down a bit. Lighter fly for a lower water I suppose. ? Won’t bore you all with anymore on the Monkey theme!! ?

    I am looking for a Zpey switch rod 11' rated for 18g or lighter. I have an 11' 20g HM Signature and love it, but would like to get one that is rated for a lighter line. The one I have can cast just as far as most 13' rods. Let me know if you have anything suitable. Thanks.
