Since this rod is for practice and a bit of (hopefully) bluegill fishing, I'd like to get by for under $50. I already have three bicycles for my summer 'habit' and a couple of pair of skis for my winter 'habit', so I don't want to spend a lot right now on a new hobby.
I checked at our local Wal-mart and they do not sell fly rods. Do you have any opinion on the ones I listed at the start of the thread? What about availability of used rods?
Thanks for the reply.
