    I have so much fishing stuff its ridiculous, the only thing I don't have is a fly fishing rod, but almost picked up a
    few while I was working at Cabelas/BPS.

    I used to fly fish when I was younger but started to target species with casting and spinning gear so I hope I don't
    go off topic here but here is my favorite spinning rod :)

    Are you mostly doing trout stuff still? or bass fishing now? I think I recall you getting a boat.

    Ever since the jungle training forum, I have respected your gear choices- the shimanos are tought to beat. That said- you definitely need to pick up fly fishing again. Get some good instruction, and honestly- as much as you like gear pick up an NRX (they are on closeout right now) and a lamson reel or something. You'll likely love it- and if not the resell is pretty decent. Fly fishing is a whole new level of Gear-heads.

    I target both, usually trout during winter (ice fishing) early spring and late fall, the rest the time I go after bass, muskie
    wiper and walleye on boat.

    I have been eyeing the NRX fly rods for a long time now, I love my NRX spinning and casting rods...will see :)

    When I was working at Cabelas, I looked at all the fly rods daily, the Fenwick Aetos stuck out and felt better then
    some of $800+ rods, I was amazed by the balance and feel and I'm not much of a Fenwick fan.
