    Hello Mike. I saw your post on the STH cassette reels …and the comments on the SAGE RPL rods and have to admit I agree 100% with everything in those posts. I have four STH reels and have been happy with all of them. It’s amazing to me that they did not receive greater endorsement in the marketplace for they were: (a) low priced, (b) versatile, (c) light weight, and (d) great for long trips where overall weight and space are an issue. The cassettes are very light weight, so carrying an additional spool of line is only slightly heavier than carrying the line by itself. The only criticism I have would be in regard to the oversensitive drag on the small reels.

      Hi Richard,
      Thanks for your response. I actually have vacuumed 2 more off these old reels up after acquiring that first one. They offer great value and versatility.

    Hej Michael

    Jag såg i Flugfiske i Norden att du skrivit en ny bok om de klassiska ABU Optic fluerne, när kommer denna boken att vara möjlig att köpa?
