Re: St. Croix vs. Orvis

The worst thing you can do is take a rod recommendation for specific rods from another fly fisherman. Other fishermen can be great for answering questions and pointing you in a direction. You need to...

Re: Orvis SuperFine Carbon tech sheet

I'm not a Orvis expert, not even really a Orvis liker (as a company), but the old Superfines were fiberglass the "new" Superfine Carbon is graphite so I dont really think the changes are cosmetic and...

Re: Newbie here. Just bought my rod. Need some suggestions for the rest.

My advice would be a little different, save money on your reel, like someone else said its just a line holder. You can get a Okuma for under $50 and it is a very serviceable reel in 5wt range. Take...

Re: White river bugger fly reel/rod outfit?

I'm not a name brand rod snob and some of the Bass Pro White River are very fishable rods but a $40 rod that they don't list the action (action being a huge part of a fly rod) might make me pass on...
