    Default Bass recognition in FF

    Well bass are the most popular species in North America so it is about time. I read an article recently that the emerging fly fishing for bass trend in the US is saving the fly fishing industry there. Maybe we can learn something from that.

    I think all rivers should be stocked with Nembwe from now on. The bass can be fodder food for them.

    ... But this rod does sound very interesting for Nembwe and similar bream fishing where you are using very heavy flies and need to cast very accurately.

    Hi Guys,

    Just resurrecting this post as i am kinda interested in getting one of these rods in an 8wt. Has anyone had any experience with them?

    I intend using it for Tigers and Bream where i will be using fast sinking lines and heavy flies, which is what it was built for.

    Besides that, i'd love to hear what other rods you guys use for the same purpose?

    Cheers

    Grant , no experience with this rod, but use a Phlueger 7wt (which is out of production) now, really cheap at R700.00 when I invested in it some 8 yrs back, a pleasure rod to fish,2 piece the problem, but the the rod in salt or fresh is a remarkable piece of equipment, has the backbone to cast big flies and the power to subdue same. Love this rod, will not sell this my ''cheapy''.
