Hi flygoddess, not sure how to post so all can see without starting a new thread but anyways, finally made it to the fly shop. Got to check out new Courtland? reel and rods, Couldn't spend much time and all I can offer without any real fly knowledge is the composite reel seemed very nice quality, and he recommended a smaller rod 4/5 I think and 7 something long for what I described. The Courtland 5/6 rod is 9 foot. Didnt get to hold them but right now They are on sale for 49 bucks and the reel is 60. ok on phone:
high modulous rod,.... sorry but this fly shop guy is a dick, he's sitting here trying to tell me that "you forum people" lol, dont know anything and just dont have the experience with all the different sizes and whatnot lol.....this is too much lol, he doesn't even know anyone
gotta hear him lmao, he's getting mad at me
he's almost yelling now lmao I HAVE BEEN FISHING FOR FIFTY THREE YEARS, YOU CANT CATCH A STEELHEAD ON A 5/6 ROD BLA BLA. HE IS YELLING, THIS MAN HAS AN ANGER ISSUE. too funny,
so now im messing with him telling him how I have no problem landing steelys with my cute little ugly combo ..OMg this should have been recorded this man is yelling at me in obvious anger !!
OK, not buying from this guy, he is his own biggest fan and just, well, he's not at all cool lol, there is a big place out further towards Idaho wherer they have river guides and casting and tying lessons etc. who were more likely raised by loving parents, will try them next. did like the Courtland reel lol
so much for my going shopping and asking him about it lmao, but I did get to play with it and that was neat, I liked the way it was laid out, come to think of it, he was starting to get angry when I was there and asked him what the tiny lever does that OF COURSE !!!! allows the spool to be removed lol
. man , his wife was such a sweety on the phone before I went down lol.
so do you all think that if I like really crawl back to this guy and beg him to be my ffing mentor.....
omg, well that's where I'm at lol.
