Stainless Stell / Chromium-Plated Guides on Rods

2 posts in this topic

I recently purchased a new 7ft Fenwick HMX rod that will mainly be used for Lindy rigs. However, its seems as though the line sags a little between the guides and sometimes results in tangles around the rod tip in some situations. Anyone out there have the same type of problem as this? What can a guy do to prevent this if it can be prevented at all?

What kind of and size line do you have on it. What is listed on reel for correct line.

Also the way it was spooled on could have caused line to twist alot. I have found long casting in front yard, with weight on end of line has helped me. That, or have some one pull a large amount of line out and reel back up. It should help.

New line seems to twist at first. Just keep fishing and it seems to correct it self.

Good luck!

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....

      Just looked at the harbor cam in canal park and looked like there was two guys out fishing from the pier. Now that the gates are open I would say that's what they were doing. Feel free to share any reports you have or would like to share. Good luck all!

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.
