I am from Wyoming and in my early 20's. I came to Valdez this last May to spend some time with some friends that moved there 3 years ago, and I feel in love with the area. Now I'm trying to figure out how to get up there full time myself. I have been stalking your forums for a while now and figured I would introduce myself.
I do have a question for you guys, though. When I move up there, I'm gonna get a really good rod and reel. Has anybody used the G Loomis Halibut Rod? What did you think of it? Is it worth paying that much? The friends that we have up there have a boat and I will be fishing A LOT, and will be trying to find the giant halibut so I want to get geared up correctly.
