Re: Scandi or Skagit?

I think one of the great things about fly fishing is that the deeper someone wants to delve into any area of the sport, the more bottomless the rabbit hole gets.

Re: Didn't get skunked!

Re: Well that didn't take long...

Looks like it's the exact same rod as the Vapen, solid black anodized aluminum reel seat, composite accents and all. A few minor changes but nothing worth writing home to mom about.
