Time for the members Cast & Compare at Hidden Lake Forest Preserve RTE 53 & RTE 56 in Glen Ellyn. Bring one or more of your new or favorite smallie rods to compare to others. This time Orvis will provide some of their new Access mid priced line of rods to try out. This is a great chance to try other lenghts, weights & actions to see what you like. We will meet by the lot in the northeast corner till lunch. Weather permitting I will grill or we can go someplace close inside. If you are new to fly fishing come out & learn!
Bring your spin or baitcast gear as well - by next year we will have TFO bring the new Gary Loomis designed spin & casting gear out.
This Saturday - Orvis will have 6 & 7 wt. rods brought by Lee Robinson Fishing Manager at Orvis Chicago.
In addition Joseph Myers of One More Cast is bringing two new rods not yet on the market.
From St. Croix designed by Kelly Gallop the 7 weight Bank Robber is made to cast large weighted streamers.
From Temple Forks the 6weight BVK part of a new line designed with input from Lefty Kreh, Flip Pallop & the designers at TFO. Both these rods use the new nano silica epoxy that allows lighter but much tougher rods.
Also I will have a range of Rio Clouser & Outbound lines, Airflo 40+ floating 7wt., & Rio's new Smallmouth line floating 7 wt. - Bring your 6 through 8 wt. rods for some sampling.
Thanks to both Lee & Joseph - We'll see you at Hidden Lake this Saturday!
