Another New Rod help thread !
A little Background:
Budget: 100-200ish. Im a college student but also want a good product
Rivers: mainly the gallatin madison and the yellowstone.
Im currently using a 40 dollar scientific angler 5 wt 8 footer and think im ready to upgrade to a decent rod. I'm only going to be able to afford one rod for now so i want something that can everything well, from nice dry fly presentation to throwing some streamers.
5 or 6 wt?
Rods ive been lookin at.
I can get my hands on a closeout sage launch for 130.
Also looking at the
Ross Essence FC
Orvis Clearwater II
I plan to couple the rod w/ either a lamson konic or orvis mid arbor reel.
Not sure on line yet.
Suggestions, thoughs and comments much appreciated!
Ps. First post.. been lurking for a few weeks though and have searched through lots of rod threads..
