Re: Dont know what to do??
I am a Sage man myself but I have been eying the Temple Fork (TFO) BVK series rod 8wt and I really like the price $249.00. I was playing around casting an 8wt last weekend and the performance I thought was outstanding, I did have a chance to fish with a 5wt back about a month ago and really enjoyed the rod, almost felt better than my sage rods.

What manner of techniques will you be fishing? Strip? Swing? Indobobbicate?
What types of flies will you be using?
If you just want one rod for now and don't want to think too hard, just get yourself a nine foot eight weight. It will cover both your needs.
As for brands, I am partial to Sage, but there are many other quality brands on the market at every price point. I would stick with the major players since they are best with their warranties just in case something goes wrong.
