Its time for another setup but I can't make up my mind on what to try out next. I presently have 3 decent baitcasters, two 6wt and one 3 wt fly rods. After taking up fly fishing this year going back to the baitcasters for salmon sounds rather boring, I haven't tried a CP yet but it looks like alot more fun. I rather enjoy chucking feathers but high and fast water can be limiting at times if you don't have the time to go exploring. Watching peeps on the Spey looks like a riot and is something I know I will get into one day but all I can see is me knocking the cigar out of my mouth every second cast.
I have about $1400 to spend so my options are not too limited, I'am curious as to which option you guys would take in this never ending pursuit of fish.

jeesh with 1400 bucks you could get one hell of a sweet CP setup. if i had that i would be buying the Talisman reel by Milner it retails for $800 at Fred's (last i looked online) and I think someone has one up for sale here as well (FisherForever, i think) and then match it with a nice Sage pin rod. Flyrod seems to have a hole bunch for sale lately :peace: and you would still have money left over.

OR

you could go a little cheaper on each setup and get a spey and a CP setup :thumbup:


realistically your options are endless LOL happy shopping

I was thinking about buying two lesser price setups for a CP and Spey, but I know I would upgrade again before the seasons over....I have a gear problem. The CP would likely get me into more fish but the spey sounds like it would be more fun to catch them on, so I guess its a quantity over quality thing that holds back on the decision making.

you could easily get 2 decent set ups for that much, watch the spey rods though if you fish smaller rivers you might want to think about a good 8 or 9 weight rod with a Rio Outbound line that way you can practice your spey on larger sections or rivers or fish single hand on the smaller sections, it's a very adaptable. Centre pins are great anywhere, and if I'm not sure what water conditons are going to be like I bring both.
