Gear Review: Ross Essence FC Fly Rods

New on MidCurrent this week is Robert Morselli’s review of Ross Essence FC fly rods, a line which Ross Worldwide recently expanded to include more models. Morselli, who is research director of the popular “How It’s Made” TV series, notes that the Essence FC is a great example of how much value can be built into an under-$200 rod.
Excerpt: “The FCs will handily cast flies in far to mid to short distances. And just five years ago, few would have thought of taking a 3-weight to any place but a trout stream with smallish fish. This just isn’t the case anymore with the better-made mid-price rods. The FC is responsive and delivers the strong sense that you can land an unexpectedly large fish if you have to.”
