    When posting photos becomes less than a pain in the ass, I'd be happy to.

    Shouldn't one who attempts to start a photo thread post a photo?

    I have pics of a recent spey build on my profile...

    I have to be honest, he's right. Have comp'ers that would eat ass for functionality ... but post a picture ... save for via e-mail.Mangie-rangie bussie programs that I spent ... lets just say lots .. won't allow me to do that.

    Kidding aside, not the above, I have to send pic's to someone in a e-mail so they can up-load same.

    Guess I'm getting what I expected/paid for in "Internet suck-urtty.'

    But that's a good thing.

    One of my set ups... a Decho 6126 with a Redington AL 11/12 reel. I've since upgraded the reel to a Bauer Rogue, but haven't gotten any fish to cooperate with a photo opportunity! Line is a Skagit 450 (integrated). Just wish I would have framed the photo better to include the lower handle of the rod...

    FYI
    Just copy the image location INSIDE the HTML code from your Flickr site and attached it to the image upload icon.
    for instance, your image web location is "http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6183/6087466782_529910aa63.jpg"

    Hope this help...
    Nice rod! BTW

    thanks for the trick to posting the pics. i have fished this rod for about a month. I love it so much, and the hatch 7 plus just puts the brakes on any steelhead i have hooked. I must say though, the red truck rod is a bit slow compaaired to a sage tcx. but oh well, still a great rod

    My fav switch is very retro; an 11' 6/7 glass rod with a Hardy on same. Line is a custom cut head done by Steve Godshall here in the valley.
