There was a post on the OzarkChronicles.com forum about cheap fly rods and while I tend to spread the wealth around several different vendors I seem to always go back to the same 2 rods when fishing.
So it wasn’t until I gave this some thought that I had an epiphany. Sure it could have been the fact that it happened yesterday while dining on lunch at an establishment by the name of “Beavers” (they are selling franchises by the way) regarding this concept of a “cheap rod”.
Truth be told, fly rods are a lot like strippers. While the expensive ones are often fun to look at, and serve a purpose, they don’t always offer any more functionality. In regards to strippers, I have always found that the cheaper ones try harder, and that really ought to count for something. I don’t know……but it kind of makes you think about your next fly rod purchase.
