  4. The H3 was released under the headline the most accurate rod to date. Since dampening tip vibration for straight tracking has been an ongoing progression in rods, and accuracy is ultimately in the hands of the caster, we needed to test the H3 in one of the most accuracy dependent fisheries on the planet to see what the hype was about and what the H3 is really capable of.

  9. Pat Cohen will be at Ole Florida Fly Shop this weekend doing fly tying seminars all day June 3rd & 4th.

If you're in the area and are interested in learning to spin deer hair or perfecting your technique, this is the guy to watch and talk to. You can see more of Pat's work on Instagram @rusuperfly or his website: rusuperfly.com More information on the seminars: Pat Cohen 2017 Fly Tying Seminar
