The required cost of to get started is also much less than what you need to tie flies.

Re: Vintage Fly Rod Identification

I wouldn't cut your one piece rod. If you'd like a short two piece rod, Global Dorber makes a series of 5' 2 piece rods called the Lil Streamer series. They are very reasonable and alot of fun to...

Re: Fair Price For A Hardy Perfect?

Probably somewhere between $500 and $1000. Depends on the exact year, appointments, where you are selling it, and who might be buying it. If you enjoy fishing it, by all means do so. If the money...

Re: Number system

To be honest, it's not a fully defining measurement. Probably the closest analogy is the Orvis Fly Rod Flex Index. Is the rod a tip flex, mid flex or full flex. Just as the the Orvis Flex Index...

Re: Where to go guys?

If you are going to be in Grand Haven, I'd suggest driving north. We spoke before about fishing for carp in Lake Michigan, that's probably a 3 hour drive or so, but it is a very nice drive.
