Didnt want to start a new topic on this subject. I am still new at this whole tying and fly fishing. But am not a pro at either. But I have been using a very old shakespear rod and reel. Has to be at least 25 years old. But I can catch fish with it. I wanted to get a newer set up for this year, Used or new. I was on e bay for weeks. I came across Willow and cane. They do mostly bid. I feel i got a great deal on a new rod and reel at about $50. Its 7-8 weight 9' long. I do bass and carp..Love the carp. Before you say you get what you pay for. I was trying some casting at the park. And wow! They have other weights too. but great for someone that dont want to spend a lot or even as a 2nd or 3rd. Im just saying take a look. Go to Ebay, click advance, click by seller, Type in willowandcaneshop. Hey, Im happy with it. Like I said Im not a pro and I dont need the best equipment. All you need is something that can toss the line on the water.
