A friend of mine is using his asr 4000 for 6 and 7wt fishing and whilst there isnt adequate backing if he hooked a 20lb springer there is enough for rainbows, grilse amd seatrout on it.
He does like his reels on the smaller side though.
The river i fish for dollaghan has some long, slow, silty runs, alot of big fish are picked up on the bung with a nymph, im wondering would dropshotting with 2 buzzers just of the bottom work, only one way to find out i suppose.
I have the 5000 on my #7 demon, i wouldnt like to hook a double figured springer with the amount of backing but its dead on for rainbows etc.
if you dont want it id take it because they are class reels:LOL:
I have george daniels dynamic nymphing and also seatrout by steffan jones, both fantastic books but ive read both.
both are like new, no folded pages or damage.
would swap for some flies, if a decent tyer fancied both books im sure we could come to an arrangement.
drop me a pm.
Next season im going to try using shot on some of my rigs instead of weighted flies when euronymphing, never done it before though so where do i place the shot and what size or weights of shot should i use.
Any info very gratefully received.
