The Bamboo rod that was willed to me with some garden hackle on it..

I'm just getting into fly fishing. I played around some with it off and on. Now I want to get a little deeper into it..

Zebco spinner hawk seeker and night crawlers. The trout they catch are the best tasting........by far.

Re: favortive equiment

I try to avoid the big name brand equipment. I have a 10' 5 weight cortland rod that I bought when I was younger that has become one of my favorites.

Re: favortive equiment

I just don't like supporting the large companies and feel that a super expensive rod is not a status symbol. I've always disliked elitism, so I practice what I preach.

My 8' 4wt St Croix Legend Ultra with an Orvis Batenkill Reel. I got it as a college graduation gift and it has been like an extension of my arm since I got it.

Re: favortive equiment

I have an older Fenwick 7wt 9ft rod that I love for Bass popping.

My best investment ever in fishing--my Hobie Mirage Kayak, I never need to use a paddle.

Live in Poconos /Big Bass Lake. I fish and hunt Deer, Birds, and Turkey. SGL 127, WMU 3D
