Re: fly rod for the wife? need some ideas?
When my wife showed an interest in fly fishing I got her a TFO Pro 8'6" 5wt and she has never looked back. She attended a 2-day fly fishing school and the Master Instructor said she had a great fly rod for her to learn and to continue fishing with. The TFO rod that is purple with pink lettering is the "Recovery and Hope Benefit" series - basically the same as a TFO Pro, with a Medium Fast action, and it costs the same as the Pro series. The Recovery & Hope rods are good fly rods, and TFO donates $25 to the "Casting For Recovery" organization for each rod sold.
