A specific rod I wanted, from a specific builder (his equipment is excellent) but the starting price for a 3 wt was $1,750for a 'plastic' fly rod. And that was for a minimum build, wanted 'bling' the price went up from there.
Now I can see the $700-$850 price range depending upon the rod but when there are so many really good 'low end' excellent equipment on the market is this a 'gotta have' vs just a good fishing tool?
Type here, scratch my head
, and look at options.
