Re: Rod Advice - Redington/TFO/Sage
Well, been a good week. I made it to the city and purchased my Christmas present. I finally settled on the 4 piece TFO Signature Series rod (9' - 5 wt). According to the supplier in Canada these are made from the same blanks as Professional Series with some improvements in guides. For rods in this price range it finally boiled down to the warranty center being only an hour and a half away and the many good reviews for this rod (along with several others).
I fitted the rod with the Pflueger Summit reel and a Rio Select Trout line. Now for the long wait till fishing season.
BTW - another great part of the week - I went to a local fly tying get together (held every Monday night in winter) and tied my first two flys. The Evil Weevil - only mine looked a little more evil than the others. I don't know if I am hooked, but, I do have a Danvise coming from e-bay.
