Default Re: Travel rods

Hi Neil,
Today there are a bunch of good 5/6 rated trout rods under $300. Is there a particular action that you prefer to fish?

As for the 8/9, there are plenty of options, too. The TFO BVK is a good option. It is a great casting rod. However if you like to horse your fish in, it may lack some butt strength. If you wish to have a rod from TFO with a stiffer butt section, you may want to consider an Axiom.

There are a lot of quality Bonefish lines on the market.
SA Mastery Bonefish Taper - A wonderful distance Bonefish line.
SA Mastery Redfish Taper - A wonderful close-in Bonefish line. If you are casting at bones within 30 feet, this is a great choice.
Wulff Bermuda Tropical Triangle Taper - It could be the best all around tropical line. It casts well at varying distances with varying types of flies.
