  1. I would recommend the Allen Compass. http://www.allenflyfishing.com/compass-rod-series/ it comes in 4,5,6,7,8 wts. It is an excellent rod for $100. Nice medium/fast action rod that won't break the bank. Its a lifetime warranty on all rods and they come in a nice heavy duty rod case. You could get a cheap reel for the time being, and upgrade if you want to later. Like many above me have posted, the bass pro rod/reel combo isn't a bad deal (especially if you are just starting out), but you would eventually want to upgrade. I'm relatively new to fly fishing, and I am confident I'll be fishing with my Allen 4wt. for a while before I upgrade.
  2. I'm in. I'm like John Snow - I know nothing. No Bias here - send me some Art.
  3. Wow guys... Thanks for all the input. I feel like I threw a wrench in a well oiled machine of friendly fly tying wisdom - then I remembered this is a forum! ha.. I really appreciate all the feedback, and I did order some of Silver Creek's resin this week. I am looking forward to using it soon. Curing time is not a big deal for me as this is a hobby for me, not a profession. I hope everyone got outside this weekend. I know I did. Hanging out in the sun, drinking the koolaid!
  4. Thanks for all the help guys! I have reached out and connected with Henry. Much appreciated-
  5. I have been looking at some UV resins online, but as I have not used them before I am hesitant to drop a lot of money on them. I did find Clear Cure Goo Thick 10 cc tube for $10 on Fishwest. I pretty sure that's a good price. I'm also in the market for a light. Does anyone have any suggestions or advice? What do you all use? Thanks!
