My wonderful wife is taking me to cabelas
this weekend for my birthday/fathers day, so i can get a new Rod and reel. I have been shopping and comparing and asking questions for a couple months regarding rods, and i know i have a thread already started but wasn't able to find it so i will start another.
Im looking for a good all around trout rod. One i can throw dries and nymphs and the occasional bugger or muddler. i fish mainly small freestone creeks and small rivers. I would like to set my budget for the rod at $150- $200. Should i be concerned with the rod action as it pertains to what im throwing ie: slow action better suited for dry fly presentations, and faster action for nymphing/streamer?
A member was nice enough to point out Cabelas has the TFO pro 1 on sale for $75 in stores, and the website has the TQR on sale for about the same. Im tempted to buy one of each, maybe a 7' 3wt TQR and a 8'6" 4wt TFO Pro 1.
2 for the price of one kind of thing?
Anyways...lookin for some input, good or bad, or whatever....lets hear it.
Thanks guys!! and gals too of course!
