New Fly Rod to Replace the Broken One!

Broke an Eight Weight Fly Rod yesterday; closed a car door on it. Intended to use it to target the Striped Bass at Denison Dam. Even put a new Fly Reel on it (the Echo Ion Fly Reel mentioned in an earlier post).

Made a stop at Cabelas in Allen this afternoon to look for a replacement. Wanted a fast action rod with some backbone. Had narrowed it down to two rods.

The Fly Shop Associate suggested another rod that was perfect except it was about $50 more than planned. As it turned out, it was actually discounted. Was able to buy it well below the budgeted price!

Back in business… hope to catch a Bruiser with it!
