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.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.
