I’m in Chihuahua for the next couple of weeks. And since there’s no fishing here, I am watching many videos. I came across this one, and thought it was well done. He even makes a rod out of Dogwood, in the woods to try to catch a fish on it. And it works great in a pinch if you need to survive in the wild as long as you have line, leader and fly.
I suppose that’s all that’s needed in small waters like that. Kind of a poor mans Tenkara. I agree with you on the Sage being stiff. I still don’t see what the rage was with the One. I saw on another forum a thread titled something like what rod do you regret buying, and the Sage One was the #1 rod people regretted to own. It’s funny that when a new rod comes out, and the hype begins to flow through the advertisements, everyone has to run out and get this one of a kind rod. I guess now it’s the new G series from Scott. But between the G series and the One, I’ll take the G.
When it came to the Sage One, the pattern I saw was that for normal fishing conditions, it’s junk. But when the wind is howling, it’s needed.
I have only seen two of this mans videos, and their not too shabby. It seems to me, part of making a decent video is to have someone else film for you, and when you talk, talk as though someone is fishing with you. Like you’re the guide teaching them.
