HI all,

I am just curious as to what others use for their Fenwick 837's. Currently I use the Sage Bluegill Taper wich is supposedly WF-230gr. It really is an interesting line. It certainly is not an 8 or 9wt as the grain would indicate. I have used it on both my 6 and 7wts with great success.

So far the line works great with the 837, but I was just curious to hear any other experiences.

By the way. Here is a carp I recently caught on the Ff837. Great carp rod in my opinion. Just enough backbone even for this brute. Yet, enough sensitivity and delicacy for a killer presentation. And its an absolute blast to see doubled over.

Thanks for any feedback!

Versatile rod - one day I grabbed it by mistake instead of my usual #10 pike stick

I like it with a SA WF7F. OK with a teeny T200 but the tip is a bit soft IMHO for big streamers and heavy tips.
Fine for trout on woolly b*ggers

And carp on breadflies off the top

Yikes, that's one heck of a fish Zeph! I think the 837 is one heck of a rod, one of Fenwick's finest.
Sometimes I use a WF8 and sometimes a WF7. It fishes both beautifully. I've always liked it better than any of their 8'6"ers.
