Do you love big bluegill?
always wanted to try fishing with a flyrod and spinning... i just dont think itll be as sensitive.
and one of the main reasons i love the fly rod is the bend... it is awesome for catching gills. carl does a roll cast with the quill either he is extremely gifted or this requires alot of practice and or both. i want to get that down because it looks like a blast. will i get that feeling with a spin reel attached? i dont know yet will have to give it a try. sensitivity on a float set up well it may not be needed if it is a dedicated setup. the length and bend are there thats for sure
put one of my Lews 100s and taped it on th handle even with the small first guide it casted fine. i love catching gill of this fly rod.they always put a big beautiful bend in the rod havnt been able to fly fish sin ce last year because of arm and shoulder pain. so cant wait to start catching them on this rig. itll be fun. thanks for the tip
Or you could hunt up some reel wraps..http://www.coldsnapcover.com/index.cfm/page/ptype=product/product_i...
I have seen guys use O-rings also.
what a great idea
after doing a little testing and benchmarking in the backyard i came across a problem with this rig and slip bobbers... the bobberstop every 10 casts or so would lodge in the guides of the flyrod....
As a diehard slip floater, I can attest that some rod guides simply aren't slip knot friendly. And once the knot snags a couple times, it becomes frayed and bunches up.....further compounding the problem.
