I entered my wifes name in the Fly Fish America mag for the free St.Croix rod and reel a couple months ago. She Won..
She does not even fly fish yet. Then I told my buddy about it and he won the next issues Cortland rod, reel and line set up. He does not fly fish.
So I talked him into selling it to me for less than 1/2 price.
Now I have 2 travel rods, reels, 3 lines and leaders. $1,200.00 worth of gear for less than 1 rod would have cost.
So now.. Who is going to show me how to use these right and fish better???

Thanks :) :) :)

I could always field test the equipment for you, so that you can be sure that you're starting off with the right quality gear. My fee would be minimal. :wink:

Just send me the ticket and pick me up at the airport.
I have never used realy nice equipment. I would like to get out with someone that can realy show me what I am doing wrong and how to perfect my presentation. I have never had a problem getting my fly on the water. It just looks like I am throwing cord-wood with a cane pole sometimes.
