Re: Ajing/ Mebaru rods for micro nymphing.

Sounds like using micro spoons and an area rod setup may be better suited for a tiny finesse option.

Re: Recommend me a spinning reel

Daiwa Revros are built like a tank and land in that price range.

Ajing/ Mebaru rods for micro nymphing.

Curious for those that have these rods how well do you think it would work? Single or double nymphs on an Ajing rig just curious on everyone’s thoughts. I’ve thought about picking up a fly rod again as euronymping has always interested me.

I bought some a long time ago from ebay.
It came in a set with different sizes. Came in very handy when trying to shim knobs to correct tightness.
Thanks, actually had to switch to looking for RC Car washers and found some now to look around.

M&N Corp rods

Long shot but looking to see if anyone has any experience with M&N Corp rods. M&N Corporation was founded in 2014 on the basis of the famous brand UFM Ueda Nishimura and is a kind of successor with a tendency to improve the well-known gear. Although, by and large, the difference is only in price, be...

I have another rod incoming a Jackson Trout Unlimited 4’5” one piece solid carbon rod. Excited to see...

Thanks!

When they say “right” they mean thread direction? Not right hand?
Typically means the handle is on the right hand side for reeling right handed

Re: TFO GTS S 601-3 info

It's part of TFO's travel series rods, and I think it was at least meant to serve as a more packable version of the 601 FWSF, which was a 2 piece spinning fly rod. The Tennessee grip is used so you can mount a fly reel or spinning reel on it. I know the 601 FWSF was created specifically with Joe Ro...

Any favourite must try spoons by now?
Big fan of the Smith D-S Line and Daiwa Crusaders I could fish those almost exclusively. Now I’m fishing primarily suspended baits targeting bigger fish and having a blast.

Re: Looking to upgrade hooks and rings LC FM Tr85SP.

Owner barbless: Stbl-1.56bc (for the smaller, lighter option) Stbl-31tn Stbl-36bc Stbl-41tn Doubt you will need thicker hooks for trout... VanFook barbless: DT-38BL-B (“the mountain stream trout hook”) They probably do other versions as well... Thanks, was able to find the VanFook in stock so going...

I have have used Owners - same type, you can get them all as barbless - and VanFook in Barbless and still do. Especially for salmon where it is mandatory in my waters. They work like a charm.
I’ll have to try and find some online.
