Best Fly Rods for Your Spring Trip

As Spring approaches, we are seeing our calendars fill with plans for our next fishing trip. We dream of the record breaker that we could hunt down. We talk with our favorite group of fellow outdoorsman about trips gone by. Then we start planning and packing our best fly fishing gear.

Waders, Check. Dry flies and nymphs, check. Beer, check. What about that fly rod? Beginning to wonder if you need a new 2013 option? Maybe you need a softer more sensitive fly rod for a small stream in Wisconsin. Maybe you are looking for a better salt water fly rod…

In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing.
