Buying a fly fishing rod should be easier than it is. It’s certainly easier to buy your second or third rod than it is your first. If you are purchasing your first rod, the brands and options are endless. In this episode, we attempt to cut out much of the noise on fly rods – and discus some basic ideas on how to think about your purchase. We each have multiple rods, and we do not have rods that are the same.
