In the end, its all owned by Halliburton anyways, so why's it really matter? We're all corporate slaves.

Fredrick, what is the SRC?

jdaddy, thanks! The 'smaller' rod is definitely for something MUCH smaller than the Dela, but at least I'll be able to cast something and get a feel for it. I'm looking for something for tight quarters.

Has anyone fished the 'narrows' section of Fishing Creek? Is that 'too big' for a 3wt? I couldn't imagine it being so.

I wouldn't be caught dead in the narrows with a 3wt in spring. You could get away with it now, but I'd still rather not sacrifice the casting distance.

3wts are nice, but only as a specialty rod. If you don't have a 9'5wt, IMO you are really shorting yourself for trout fishing.

And to answer your question, I think he's referring to Spring Ridge Club, owned by Donny Beaver.

Too heavy is way better than too light, IMO.

Lots of old timers fished 6wts on BFC long before we were around. I'd say that if it's pumping at a good flow, a 6wt will be fine. Lots of these super fast action 5wts out there are practically 6wts anyway.

I have a number of TCO rods. All trout weights, 3 through 6. They range from what I call average to very fast action depending on the model. If I did go for steelhead I don't think I would want something as fast as their upper end models.

I'll add that the cork on most of their models is not first class.

Franklin - It's TFO, FWIW. Although you can buy TFO at TCO, IMHO.

TFO = Temple Fork Outfitters

TCO = Tulpehocken Creek Outfitters

As always, don't buy any rod without casting it. Cast as many brands, lengths, weights, actions as you can get your hands on before you make a choice. TFO make decent rods for a decent price, but there's a lot of rod choices out there.

FWIW, whheff has a complete 2wt system posted to the swap forum for a very reasonable price. Its not gonna be good for big water, but I'm become more and more of a fan of light stuff, and would consider it if I didn't already have 1 and 3 covered "good enough."

I have the TFO TiCrX in 7 & 9 weights. Both rods are 9'. They are VERY fast action rods. I have them both over-lined by one weight. The 7 has a Rio VersiTip and the 9 has an Orvis shooting head system. They will throw a bunch of line & heavy flies, even in the wind, with relative ease. If you don't like a very fast action these are NOT the rod for you. BTW I like the rods very much.

I'll be the first to give you a real report on TFO rods. I own a 9'8wt TICR rod that I bought maybe 3 years ago. It's paired up with a Cabela's SR reel that isn't made anymore. I LOVE this setup. First off, TFO rods are known for being a bit on the stiff side vs other rods. They will punch out line a mile if you try hard enough. I use mine for bass fishing in lakes, so I like being able to cast it a good distance. The 8wt is more than enough for steelhead. I like the extra muscle to be able to show them who's boss. You don't need anything really fancy as far as rods go for steelhead, except that there's a good chance you'll break a rod eventually, so that leads to 2 ways of thinking... buy a REALLY cheap rod and just deal with it, or get one with a warranty. TFO has a lifetime warranty and great customer service. I snapped about 2 inches off of my rod while trying to clear ice off the tip top, and they repaired it and had it back to me in 10 days, which is fantastic. They have a lifetime warranty and it just costs $25 for any repairs, which mainly covers shipping. I would back TFO and will look their way when I look into a new rod.
