I go up to Neshannock Creek Outfitters in Volant quite often. Great store and Bob won't try and stear you wrong. I've also dealt with International Angler a few times and waas pleased with the service there too. The hardest thing is trying to figure out what rod to buy because there are so many different makes and models and there are differences in how they fish. Best option is to try different rods to see which type of rod fits you best.
