Default Re: The newest member of the family...

The H&H classic is an excellent line and perfect for that rod in the DT.

When I was a kid. so much of my outdoor gear came from Herters.
Fly vise and tying materials, rod building stuff, archery stuff, down sleeping bag.
I'm pretty sure that my father had a Herter's fly rod... not that little one though.

I could see where the Herter's higher end bamboo rod might go for $250, but not a glass rod...no way. Even Philipsons don't go for that much.
