American Legacy has NRXs for 25% off. And GLXs. But not for long. Just saying.

Re: How many Shimano Antares do you own?

You need "none" as a category up there.

Re: 2017 Shimano Soare Ci4+ S408UL-S Ajing rod

Thanks for the heads-up. I picked up a new one on eBay last night, to go on a 5' 2" Nissin ultralight.

Goodbye Gander Mountain

Gander Mountain just announced the bankruptcy liquidation of all its in-store inventory. Don't know what sorts of deals you can get online.

Re: New GLX 782C MBR

I've never fished the original. I bought it for jerk baits, which I have always fished on spinning gear before.

New GLX 782C MBR

My new GLX 782C MBR arrived from American Legacy today. That puppy is light! It feels like a wand.

Re: First round reel

100DC doesn't seem to be available anymore, which may indicate a new one coming out next year. I can't speak about the new Calcutta's, but I own several old Calcuttas and Conquests, in regular and DC versions.

Grabbed a Wal-Mart bargain

Walked into a local Wal-Mart last night and saw that fishing tackle had finally gone on clearance. I picked up a few lures at an OK price and found three Yumbrellas for $7 (regularly $10-something). Then, on the other side of the display, I found four Mann's "Original" A-rigs, regularly $24.96, mark...

Re: Rod for light (1/64th ounce) jigs

Marabou jigs tied on 1/64th-ounce jig heads. Standard fare for Missouri trout. Not much weight there to load up a rod, so you kind of have to shoot the jig so that line peels easily off the reel.
