Hey everyone, new to the site and have already found a bunch of cool info. I just ordered the Sage 8129 blank kit from anglers habitat and was wondering if anyone has fished this rod and would be familiar with its capabilities, I intend to use it for winter runs on the Vedder (I live a block away), and the Thompson. I know this is a shorter rod, wondering if it will be able to bomb it out on the Thompson. Any suggestion to what a good line for that rod would be? Thought I would get some advice while I anxiously await the UPS guy. Just getting into spey fishing, hoping this rod will serve me well for a many years.
