However some folks derive enjoyment fishing a $700 rod and reel for bluegills, so the extra expense is obviously worth it to them.

Some folks enjoy fishing a fixed length line system for the simplicity it provides - a stick, a string , a fly. The idea being you concentrate on the fishing , not the equipment. Other folks look forward to fishing whatever the latest and greatest model happens to be.

There is no right or wrong answer, it's not so much black and white, rather different shades of gray. They all catch fish, it is just a matter of where you like to be on the cost/value curve.

As with many things fly fishing related, sometimes the shopping is half the fun.

I think you figured me out. During the winter months I spend waaaay too much time picking out a new toy for the coming spring!

Thanks shotgunfly.

Thanks for the info. Do you think a tenkara rookie like me should be concerned with rod choice or just order one and enjoy? I will use it mostly on my home lake for bluegill and small bass. I also plan to try it on some of my trout trips.

Thanks for your comments.
