    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.

    That was interesting. I notice he wasn’t casting the stick. Just sort of flipping it.

    I’m surprised by his choice of graphite rods. I cast a Sage XP once and it was the stiffest rod i’ve ever cast by a wide margin compared to what i’d own.

    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.

    I’d rather have a softer rod and go home when the wind is howling. On really windy days I go to a creek with a lot of cover. I hardly notice the wind and casts are short anyways.

    Standing on an open river on a really windy day is self-torture.
