8/1 Short Rod Shootout 9:00AM Glenwood Park Forest Preserve south of Batavia on Rte. 25
Something new – we will test cast a group of rods & line weights that are designed to cast large flies & fight big fish in heavy cover. Sage Bass 7’ 11” rods, Ross Flystik 6 & 8 wt, Redington Predator 6 & 8 wt. and TFO Mangrove 7’ 6” 6 & 8 wt. are part of this lineup. A new niche market, these rods are aimed at warmwater use, they are shorter than most of the rods we fish & priced at 1/3 to ½ of most top end rods. A chance to try them on the water side by side.
Bring your own rods to work on your casting or fish later.
While not a class it will be a good time to learn from your fellow Bassbuggers. I’ll grill some dogs for lunch about 11:30 & we will target some areas to fish afterwards. Questions PM or call me. John L
