With the revolution going on in Fiberglass fly rods the past few years, it was time for Temple Fork Outfitters to throw their hat in the ring....and we are glad they did. The Finesse Glass from TFO at $199.95 may well be the best of the bunch.

Scott this year brings us the moderately priced Tidal Fly rod. Designed for the average saltwater angler...though we have loved these for warmwater fishing around here as well. The new Scott TIDAL fly rods come in at the $475.00 price point. Great addition to the Scott line and we are now hearing that they will be adding a "Musky Special" to the Tidal series this Spring.

Winston also brings us a new medium priced offering in the Nexus. A fantastic rod that is designed and built in Twin Bridges, Montana. The new Nexus from Winston comes in at the $475.00 price point and may well be our favorite offering in this crowded group this year. Definitely worth casting!!!
