Scott: G2 in #2, #3 and #4 in 7'7" and 8'4". The 7'7" 2wt and 8'4" 3wt are superstars in this series.

The 907-4 Radian is quite a soft rod and in my opinion, not a great streamer rod if full sink lines and larger flies are going to be used.

One of Gary Borger's favorite easy to tie patterns are collared leeches. When a fly is stripped, the fly creates a pulse or sound wave as the fly pushing the water aside and forward. A muddler minnow or fly with a "collar' such as a collared leech creates a larger "bow wave" as it is retrieved.Scott G2 or GS 883- one of the best small fly, long leader, medium distance rods ever made.
