Curious: What if you break a warrantied rod which is out of production?

We all know how fantastic fly rod warranties are. Most last at least 10 years, some last a lifetime.

What if you break a 20 year old rod that is still under warranty? Surely they don't have any...

Re: It's That Time Again, What Was Your Best Fishing Experience of 2014?

Re: Doing a term paper on fly rods and the natural resources used in them

Quick update here:

Finished my first draft (20 pages including references). I'm looking for information on past retail prices of graphite fly rods. From 1974 to today. Every rod possible would be...

Re: Classic Trout Half Off

I love the slow action for smaller stuff and my 8'6 3wt has become one of my favorite go-to rods when I think I can handle the fish on the other side (I will undergun as often as possible). I've...

Not 100% sure where to start in figuring out where everything that makes up a fly rod comes from.

Re: Orvis or Cabelas - Equiptment and Warranty

I will agree with the above post.

I'm on my third RLS 5wt. Love the rod. First one broke after about a year of hard use (think 5/7 days a week). Snapped while double hauling for no reason. I was...

Re: Long time Fisherman...New to the Fly

I started with a 9ft 5wt Cabela's RLS, and I would definitely recommend it.

Like everyone else is saying, 6wt should give you some wiggle room in terms of how big your fly is. If you're into lake...

Re: Paddleboard Fly Fishing for bass or pike or any fish?

I think a paddleboard sounds just as useful as a kayak, easier to stand on as well. Maybe a little slower. In the flats though, I would definitely go with a paddleboard.

Re: Major Flooding in Michigan

I'm surprised the Huron River Drive didn't flood like it usually does. We haven't had that much rain, and the melt didn't blow it up as much as I expected.

Re: Soon I'll Go From This................

I see 9/10 days with lows higher than freezing. It means that winter should have gone away a long time ago.

Re: Spring

I'm in SE Michigan and everything is still frozen up. Usually by this time rivers are starting to heat up.

I think we're just going to jump from winter to summer.
