My Scott got a baby brother

4 posts in this topic

After picking up a Scott ARC 1008/4 last month, I couldn't pass up on seconds. I picked up another deal on a Scott ARC 956/4, a 9'6" 6 weight (4 piece). This has the same progressive taper as the 8 wt, and has a fighting butt to boot!

I also got an extremely good deal on a new reel and line from a "superbowl special". The 6 wt setup will be indentical to the 8 wt: Lamson Velocity Hard Alox (size 2) and Scientific Anglers Steelhead taper.

I should be able to give the old one-two punch to the fish with these setups.

Is it spring yet? grin.gif

I think you're in the market for a 12-step program, JP. grin.gif

Nice rods, btw. ;\)

Yeah, so far 2008 has been the year for gear. I've got the new Patagonia Double Haul pack coming on Monday. It is redesigned for 2008 and is modular so the chest pack and hip pack can be worn independently of each other. It looks awesome and should be pretty versatile, especially for travelling light.

It's been nice, with my wife now working as a 0.5, there's finally been some funding available for "capital improvements". I've still got more gift cards from xmas and my birthday to use yet too. Should be a fun year.

Yup, once you go Scott, you’ll never look back – I “collect” the old, old ones. I just recently acquired a San Francisco era G series 8’8” 3 wt. the thing still had the plastic on the cork, it was brand new and never taken out of the tube, a heck of find. Those ARC’s are a little fast for my taste, but nice rods nonetheless. Yes sir, a huge Scott fan.

The current Scott count in my house hold is 5; all but one is at least 10 to 15 years old. Lamson reels? Got a bunch of them too.

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?

      Oohhh, I'll tell you what folks, it is just a beautiful day to be in the northland!!!   Heard that one a time or two.   Classic Country Sunday, the opening 15 minutes were the best.
