Re: First fly rod
I don't think I would ever buy a fly rod without trying it first
Fly rods have to fit the personality of the caster.
Some people case a softer rod better than a stiff rod, and vice versa
In general - and I'm sure there's a lot of differing opinions on this too, I think beginners will do better with a softer rod
There's a lot of great rods out there, that cost less than 200, that would make a better starter than a One - my 1.5 cents
