Thanks!! It sounds like great fun!

For the rod price... I was hoping there was a special connection somewhere. While I don't really know, it seems the price of fly fishing tackle is largely regulated by the manufacturers. I guess the good side of this is it helps keep the little fly shops in business by allowing them to be as competitive as the big chain stores.

Again, I appreciate all the input you gave me.
