    The second of two very highly regarded fly rods that I've reluctantly chosen to part with. Again, I'm not sure why, but I seem to have gravitated back to faster actions, and these have been sitting...

    Since the patent expired on the C&F/Scientific Anglers slit foam boxes a couple years ago, there are lots of good and less expensive options out there. I've been very impressed with these from...

    Very possibly my favorite rod. I sometimes fish it with a sink tip as well and have had no problems doing so. I follow the same general procedures which Ted laid out, which I think are appropriate to...

    I won't advise you one way or another relative to financial priorities, that's ultimately up to you and/or your wife. But I will chime in about that rod. I was previously lukewarm on a lot of the TFO...

    Somebody should grab this. I have one of the Gurus, and that's a good price on a great reel. If I needed that size, I'd be all over it.

    My first thoughts were the Sage One and Winton BIIIX. Similar actions in my opinion, good at distance but excellent performance at close range too. The Orvis H2 strikes me as a similar rod, though...
