  2. TFO BVK 9' 8-weight Review

    Introduction If you’re around any fly shop long enough, you get to know the local gear junkies – the guys who really know (or want to know) everything about the latest and greatest tackle. These are the guys who hid paychecks from their wives to pick up the Hardy Zenith last spring.   And when it comes to saltwater –...
  3. R.L. Winston Boron IIIx 9' 5-Weight Review

    R.L. Winston Boron IIIx 9' 5-Weight Review
    The Winston Boron IIIx follows in the footsteps of it's predecessor, the BIIX. Both are light, medium/fast-action rods that not only set the standard for construction and finish, but also cast as good as they look. When Winston started designing the new B3x they intended it to be faster and more powerful than the BIIX. They succeeded.   Here's the outfit...
  4. Sage ONE 9' 5-weight Review

    Sage ONE 9' 5-weight Review
    The Sage ONE is the other 5-weight that everyone was talking about in 2012. It’s Sage’s signature rod, and when Jerry Siem (Sage’s rod designer) designs a fly rod like this – he does it right. It’s all Sage. Fast. Light. Accurate. The feel was a solid upgrade from the Z-axis as well. Keep reading to for the details.
  5. Sage Circa Review

    Sage Circa Review
      This is the review you’ve all been waiting for. The Trident staff finally got a chance to cast the new Sage Circa at IFTD, and we were definitely impressed. But we weren’t the only ones, apparently, because the Circa won the award for Best New Fly Rod!   This review is based on the 589-4, but the 4-weights should...

      The rumors are over.  Sage has unveiled it's 2013 line-up with 4 new rods and a few new reels.  We'll have another post on the new reels, but here's a first look at some of the new rods.  An interesting note: Sage has completely done away with their 2-piece rods for 2013.  Photos will be posted shortly.   We'll...
  7. Quick Take: Greys XF2 Streamflex 10' #4 Review

    The Greys XF2 Streamflex 10' #4 is a great rod for someone looking to get into Czech nymphing without the high price tag. It's versatile enough to throw the occasional dry or streamer.
  8. Sage TXL-F 000710-4 Review: The World's Lightest Fly Rod

    My latest acquisition... How I covet thee.  I've finally had enough time to get out on the water and cast the world's lightest (line weight) fly rod: the Sage TXL-F 000710-4. Here's the outfit I was using:   Sage TXL-F 7'10" 000-weight Sage Click I Rio Trout LT 000 Double Taper (the only choice really) Fit and Finish Sage does an...
  9. Hardy Zenith 9' 5-weight Review: The Best Fly Rod for Trout?

    With opening day finally here, I had the chance to test out my new Hardy Zenith 9' 5-weight.  I can say it definitely lives up to the hype.  Here's the outfit I was using:   Hardy Zenith 9' 5-weight Lamson Vanquish 4.5LT SA Sharkskin GPX Fit and Finish Right out of the box the Zenith looks amazing.  It comes with...
