They must have stocked my local waters again....... or I'm becoming a good fly fisher!
I had a ball today and caught about 15 small browns with my 3wt.
As I was fishing in this paradise, I wondered what rod I should get next.
A couple mins ago, I ordered a 1wt SuperFine 7'6" with a free BBS reel. I also got some Gen 3 Superfine line. Braided nylon core with a 19' belly....... for tight quarters and light presentation.
I ordered direct from Orvis with "next day delivery"
I would have spent that much on gas tomorrow driving to the nearest Orvis store...... and the sales guy would say "We don't have that line in stock, but this line actually works better...... and would you like flies with that?"
Also, he probably wouldn't have a 1 wt in stock. He would probably say "These 5wts are the most popular, try casting this one....... looks good in your hand"
I can't go through that again, so I choose the internet.
