Peter is a 'Sage' guy - not a sage person, but a Sage guy. My first flyrod was a 9' 5wt DS2 from Sage. I have broken it 3 times, and gotten it replaced by Sage with a smile. Once it blew off my roof rack and was run over by the car behind (I forgot my velco straps and drove away..) I put it in a 'body bag' and sent it so Sage with a note that said "I'm sorry. I killed it". 2 weeks later I had a new rod.
And I like how they fish! I also have a 3 wt 4 piece SLT. It's my backpacking and small stream rod. I am not an expert on rods by any means, but I like the fast action of my SLT 'stream rod', as well as the overall feel of the 5 wt. Soon I hope to have a shiny new Z Axis - that I will be much more careful with then my poor abused DS2.
Scott won't tell what flyrods he uses....
