Well I thought I would throw in a quick entry. Upgrading the set-up. I am a die hard nympher who likes to swing every once in awhile too, so the obvious solution.... a switch rod. well after looking for awhile, I decided to treat myself. The decision, a G Loomis NRX 12'-6wt. Some basic factors in coming to this decision were, I wanted something light and not too long. I fished this stick once in the fall and it was unbelievably light. Going from a 10' 7wt to a 12' 6wt was an amazing difference. Mending and reaching was so much easier. So one thing at a time. I needed a new reel for this stick, so I headed out and grabbed the Ross Evolution LT #4. I then ordered the rod and threw down a deposit on it. I should have the Rod in several weeks and I am just dying to get my hands on it. So here is a pic of the Ross Evolution LT#4 in Grey Mist.
An amazing light reel. The LT#4 is rated for lines 7-9. I will be running a 7wt nymphing line, and ordering an extra spool for backing, running line and a 400 grain Skagit head for swinging. Very stoked to say the least. For now the 10' 7wt will see some more action, but I plan on retiring it soon.
