Re: So I'm thinking ultralight, but where to start?
mattwolf: I'm sure his fly rods are great, but I don't like to order custom fly rods from individual people who make them. It's hard to get a sense of their flex and action before you buy them, and you really take a chance with customer service. Plus I just don't know how the rods compare to others and their are often little to no reviews.
Like I said, I'm sure his rods are great, just not my style.
Right now I'm leaning towards a 2wt Echo Carbon. I'd probably get the TFO Finesse if it came with a damn rod case. I actually have a rod case that might work, but the principal just pisses me off.
