Re: Anglers Roost rods
I've got a 6.5' 4 weight Anglers's Roost that is a sweet small stream rod. I got it on a whim a couple of years ago for $60 or $70. I think it's called "The Fairy". Nothing fancy as far as hardware and finish goes, and there was no rod tube included at that price, but the action is quite pleasant, comparable to the old 6.5' 4 wt graphite Orvis Flea.
Sometime after I bought mine he started selling a 6.5' rod rated for a 2/3 weight as "The Fairy". I don't know whether that one uses a different blank or he just changed the line rating on it. Anyway, I still like mine with a WF4.
I don't know if that helps you decide about a spey rod, though.
