G_Smolt-
  Reading that post is some serious stuff, you make a great case for those 'bows!  Now that sounds like way too much fun.  Thanks for getting me all amped up for a trip I won't be able to make for probably at least 5-7 years due to having another little one around.

I've fished that same crick, G_Smolt.  And I agree that they hit the fly with a very intense purpose like none I've ever experienced elsewhere.

A couple rainbows.  Or could one of them be a steelie?  And a dolly.  All from the Kenai.

Nice fish GS,

Just curious how you line the  6127. and what is the action compare to the 7130?

Y-

I like LOVE the 6127 with a 390 skagit / 390 rage / 360 scandi.

With the skagit, I have been flinging 10'-13' of t-10 and flies up to 5", no sweat. However, when the wind kicks up past about 15-20kts the 6127 is a little "neutered-feeling" and doesn't have the sack to really cover water as effectively as a larger rod / heavier line could.

The rage 390 / 14' int poly combo is pretty damn awesome on that rod, especially for bumpy water / rock garden fishing where you might not have the space to singlespey or the water texture kills the loop of a scandi.

360 scandi is very crisp on that rod, and with the right "compactness" to the stroke it goes like a bat outta hell. If I ain't fishing big-ass ugly flies way up in the water column, or if I am in a smooth pool in calmer conditions, the scandi is the way to go for absolute airy effortless-ness-icty...

Action is mostly similar to the 7130 (short answer). The 6127 has a tendency to bend deeper into the 3rd and handle sections.

VERY NICE!!

Thanks for the information! COOL! I am looking for another trouter and this rod looks like might be the one!!
I fish a lot 390 skagit around 20' on the Dredger 6/7  12'9 (more of 5/6 weight rod ) and really like it. T11 10' sinktip will be more than enough on the trout waters here... I am excited to know the rage 390 works well on this rod. I have use this line and really like the way it kicks through the afternoon wind. Very nice information! Thanks!

I also use the 6127 for sea run browns or sea trout as we call them - I fish for them in the Baltic (big pond for you guys). My favourite line for this rod is also the 360 scandi compact sometimes even the 330grain, but if the wind gets up I use a 390 skagit switch, don't need heavy tips a slow sinker will do for the areas I fish. Although the rage has become my goto head for Atlantic salmon on other Echo's I don't use it on the 6127. Not sure why really Huh

Man I need to head north!

Here's a few lower 48 trout (Utah/Idaho) using skagit line/technique.  I have been using an old inexpensive single action click-pawl reel called the Cortland "Mosquito" with the Decho 4 and they tear it up.  So fun!
