Topics I've Started

Main line pinning

10 June 2019 - 04:45 PM

And I'll start it off.
Had no opinion cause I've never used a center pin reel.
At 60 yrs old finally gave in to the peer pressure on the river.
Grabbed myself an islander and Loomis glx rod.
Spooled her up with fly line backing and
340 yrds of 6 lb test mono.
Finally got some experience with my new setup on this years trout opener.
Went 5 for 8.
Was asked by veterans how many broke off with the 6 lb test.
Short answer none.
2 lost on croc roll and 1 broken hook at hook gap.
Croc roll issue cause I allowed slack in line, being a rookie and constantly looking at what center pin reel was doing. Lol
Was a blast on the 1 to 1 battle but found it quite exhausting.

Have to admit I missed my Stradic and relaxing auto drag .
Learning curve I'm assuming.

Can't stop watching.
What really blows my mind are these fools that post poached deer pics and their over limit and undersized fish on Face Book.
Are people just retarded?
God bless Facebook. Ha ha ha
