Fly fishing: ISA's Cast and Compare

September 8, 2015

 The Illinois Smallmouth Alliance hosts one of its regular chances to cast and compare fly rods.The video is of Doug Taylor. Here are the details for the Cast and Compare on Saturday in Batavia.


Cast and Compare-
 This Saturday!!

Bring one or more of your new or favorite rods to compare to others. This is a great chance to try other rods on the water to see what you like. If you are new to fly fishing come out & learn!

This fall we have new products from Sage & Reddington with rep Dave Gellatly & pro staff instructor Doug Taylor. They will showcase a generous cross section of their product line for you to try out. Every rod will have a matching line. Doug Taylor will  help  match your own Spey/Switch rod to the correct line.  One of the difficulties of learning to Speycast is getting just the right match of rod to line.  If you are having a problem with your rod-to-line match up (irrespective of brand) or a problem with your casting technique, Doug can help. Come to Cast and Compare and experience the very best in Fly Tackle.


Dupage Fly Fishing, manager Jeremy Spaccapaniccia is bringing rods from Orvis & Scott. They are your local Sage shop & can answer questions on cost & availability. Thanks to Jeremy & Dupage Fly Fishing Co. for arranging the new gear for us.


We'll also have a raffle of donated gear during lunch to cover expenses.

Come join us for this free event - stick around & we'll grill & then go fishin'.
