Re: Cast 1/64 with Ald15

One of the issues with Nano, which I use a lot of, is that it is made for use on a spinning reel.
I think it is a completely round line and if there is any type of over run or the drag is set to tight, it will dig into itself.
If it works for you, awesome. I'm not brave enough to try it.

Re: Cast 1/64 with Ald15

I have a question regarding your rod, is the guide missing on purpose?
If that is a modification, does that have something to do with being able to cast light weights?

Re: Trout spybaits

This interests me, a friend of mine recently asked me to build him a trout sized spin bait. Too bad I didn't know about the Tetra.
But anyway, I am putting the finishing touches on my own 1 5/8" and 2" spybaits.

Re: Looking for Mebaru rods under 7 feet.

You might look into River Runners from Fenwick. These are a bit softer than many of the Major Craft Ajing rods.

Those toothy ones can steal rare baits. ;)

I've caught fish on the maxx scent baits but they aren't anything special in my opinion.

Re: USDM 500-size reels

I saw at my local tackle show that for 2018 shimano USA is introducing 500 size Nasci and Sarahas I believe. having said that, a 1000 Size Stradic Ci4+ should be light enough for just about any UL size rod no? and you would get the benefits of a 1000 size spool (casts better than a 500 size) I am p...

Re: What new baits will you be tying on this year ?

Last year I discovered blade baits. I had a very good season with Johnson ThinFisher baits in 3/16, 1/14 and 1/2 chasing bass. Late in the season I found these Reef Runner Cicadas and grabbed a few with the intention of using them for UL. I never got a chance to throw them yet but they look promisi...

Re: What new baits will you be tying on this year ?

I'm gonna run a Picasso JR A-rig with some small swimbaits rigged weedless. Watched a guy on the river kill it last year with a weedless A-rig, little hooks but light drag (still strong line) works well. Also been using my version of a "Tiny Ika", take a Hula Grub's tails off and rig the ...

Re: USDM 500-size reels

Can't you put together a GLoomis SJR 720 IMX with a Shimano Soare 500S and keep it under $500? That would be a pretty sweet combo IMO. That would be a nice outfit, the SJR 720 is a hoss. Has a very fast tip and will control larger fish. I fished one for a few years with a Stradic 1000. My all time ...

Re: USDM 500-size reels

I have a couple of Stradic 1000 CI4'sand I love them. You can get a smaller framed Shimano reel with the Sahara 500FE but it weights 6.2oz. The one non Shimano reel that I have used for the better part of the last 20+ years is a Tica Cetus SB500 on my lightest UL combos. I also have an SB800 which h...
