I am currently using a cheapo 8 wt, 9', rod with an even cheaper Pfleuger knock off automatic reel. With decent WFF line I can cast a reasonable distance. This setup is almost 50 years old! I am looking for a new rig that is properly matched and balanced. My confusion stems from the price of reels. I find them as cheap as $15 all the way up to $200+! Would someone please explain what I should look for to match a 5 wt rod and an expected price? Thank you all. (keep in mind that I am retired on a minimal fixed income)
Hey guys I just wanted to throw a thread up about Chicago Fly Fishing Outfitters. I am a big advocate of supporting your local fly shop, however I am sure there are some guys out there that may not have a fly shop right down the street. Or maybe the shop is great for the local area but is lacking in the international selection. Chicago Fly Fishing Outfitters is my semi-local fly shop and boy am I lucky. Not only do they have first class selections of rods, reels, and absolutely everything else you need for fly fishing, the staff is helpful and professional. The guys at "Chi Fly" are pro's when it comes to the Midwest, and on top of that offer some amazing fly fishing trips all over the world. They cover the "Driftless" region of SW Wisconsin to the flats of Mexico. The only reason I put this post up was because I really think that Chi Fly is a great place and for someone like myself who found it only a year ago, I wanted to pass it on. If your not from the Midwest they have an excellent website as well, were you can order anything from full set ups to fly fishing apparel and tons of fly tying equipment. So for anyone out there who is limited on fly shops or is looking for something specific Chi Fly caries the best brands and offers the best information on fishing and products that I have come across. I know this was long winded but I am a very satisfied customer and new friend. I hope that everyone on the forum has a place like this that they can go hangout or reference for help! If not here it is! Check them out and see for yourselves. http://chifly.com/
