My Chronarch 51e has the royal purple honeycomb spool ALD0936RR from Akira at HHS, same spool on my Scorpion xt 1001 in red, gold for the 51e curado, black on my 09' Aldie. If you haven't tried these do yourself a favor, I think these are super slick, great for finesse and all around fishing. Really great for just zipping lures out, treble hooks, weightless Plastics Etc :big grin :big grin:


I'll have to get some pictures out but I forget my phone, which is a great problem to have :lol: I'm having a blast in Wisconsin fishing the Mississippi catching pike, large and smallies. Too busy with my kids getting them on fish to record the action.

Some pics of the "Sip" in cheese land....nothing too special as I was pretty busy wrangling my tres locos and all the cousins getting them on fish :big grin: Forget sometimes how awesome midwestern/northern waters can be. What a trip with the wifey and kids! Now off to Viking land! The Salamandia is a f**king fierce travel rod good gawd! The 4 piece BE was awesome hollow and soft frog rod even in the sloppy parts of the River. She made and excellent no sinker soft plastics in the submerge weed lines as well with MBPigs and 5 " senkos.

Okay so it had been Satan's oven here in the basin. So unfortunately I haven't been out fishing even at night which is generally what I do during this time of year but holy smokes especially getting off the board from the Midwest where at a couple of days during the week of my stay and family vacation and got up to 66 degrees with humidity. Stepping back off the plane coming back here to the desert was a real kick in the teeth. Anyways so I haven't been fishing the last couple weeks since I've been back but last night I was so bored and needed to do something I ended up Feathering just about anything with hook or converting tail treble hooks to rat tails :lol:

Exquisite as always Christo! I aspire to your picture posting prowess!
I feel your heat. I was relagated to the Mohave Valley, AZ area the last couple of weeks. When I arrived on 7/24, I was greeted by this....
