Re: Newbie questions
Basically same response as the reel post, get the best you can afford because you get what you pay for. I think my first fly fishing setup cost $40 several years ago. After a few months of use it broke while casting. I have several rods in my collection that were in the under $100 range. However the rod that gets the most use is my Scott. More expensive but well worth it, also has the lifetime warranty. Generally, the more expensive rods will last longer and perform better.
