I too like the Orvis bamboos….have 4 & 5 weight.If you like the vintage production rods by U.S. companies like South Bend, Heddon, Montague, etc. from the 40's, and 50's (and I do) most seem to be found in 8-1/2 to 9', and 6,7, or 8 weights. I have a 7-1/2' South Bend 290 that seems to fish a 5 or 6 equally well, and an Orvis Madison in the same configuration that does too, and a big ol' Orvis 9' Battenkill that handles a 7 or an 8 very well. My lighter rods are all more contemporary, a 6'6" 3wt by Headwaters and a Glenn Brackett-Era R.L Winston 7-1/2' 4wt.
The CZ shotguns are really nice! I bought a CZ grouse in 28 gauge side by side and really like to shoot even better than my 20 gauge Winchester over and over.Sure is.
Today was its virgin outing.
I just picked it up. It’s a CZ bobwhite. Turkish import made my Huglu, nothing super fancy but it’s put together real nice and fit and finish seems top notch so far.
Loved having it out today.
