    Re: Bruce & Walker Hexagraph

    Ste, as I know you cherish your pins, be careful not to choose a reel seat that may damage their feet!

    Re: Does flooding change rivers?

    Some rivers change much more than others. The substrate and bankings are a huge factor.

    Re: Bruce & Walker Hexagraph

    Before parting with your hardy rods it might be worth trying/getting one hexagraph rod first to see if you do actually like 'em.

    For what it's worth, i'd stick with your hardy rods.

    Whatever it's test curve, you know to use something lighter next time. I don't like using heavy rods if I can help it, but I know it wouldn't be too heavy for legering on my local rivers, not that I...
