Finally found a rod I actually wouldn't want to part with!
My #1 recreational activity is inexpensive, close to home, and usually completely relaxing - fly fishing for bluegills at the local lake. Almost every evening when the water is open you will find me tossing flies there.
I have tried many brands and weights when it comes to rods, and most of them end up as "less than perfect" in my opinion. Either not a perfect match to my casting style, or not a perfect match to the bluegill's size to make it an exciting fight when a large 'gill takes the fly.
After fishing this rod for a few trips I'm in love!
I believe I could cast it blindfolded, it has the power to get a fly well out on the water, and an 8" (or larger) bluegill puts a serious bend in the rod making the outcome of the fight questionable at times.
Not an expensive rod by any means, but I'd much rather give up one of my rods worth many times the price I paid for this one -
