Re: Best 5 wt under 250.00 ?

Well I have used my new rod twice now and have to say I really like it! I have no problem with short casts and I can cast farther then I ever could before. No matter what size or type of flies I was...

Re: Best 5 wt under 250.00 ?

Thanks to everyone who commented on my post. I have decided to get the BVK. It feels like the right rod for me. I look forward to fishing it as soon as possible.

Re: Best 5 wt under 250.00 ?

Re: Best 5 wt under 250.00 ?

Re: Best 5 wt under 250.00 ?

No but 250.00 is about all I can spend right now and should be enough to get me something as good if not better then what I had. Really would like to use the gift card towards the rod though. I found...

Re: Best 5 wt under 250.00 ?

I would be tickled pink if they gave me 250.00 for my LST also. They gave me a gift card for 100.00 though for a rod valued at 175.00. They gave me less because I bought a combo. When I purchased the...

Re: Best 5 wt under 250.00 ?

The length of my LST was 8'6". I fish the North Platte river here in Wyoming, but also fish from my pontoon boat quite a bit. I have a Penn Intl. gold medal series 6 wt. same length as my back-up...

Best 5 wt under 250.00 ?

First let me start off by saying I'm a new Member. I have been fly fishing for over 20 years but don't consider myself an expert by any means. I'm looking at a couple of fly rods to replace my old...
