From Orvis to Echo: Budget Fly Rod Recommendations

Blogger Michael Gracie came up with an interesting array of mid- and low-priced fly rod recommendations by adding some of his own ideas to that of other fly fishing bloggers and friends. Starting at $90 for an Orvis Streamline 865-2 Mid Flex fly rod, Gracie lists 8 products that may turn out to be good choices for those in the market for an under-$300 rod. “Much as we’d all like to be casting $1,800 varnished masterpieces, there are a whole lot of rods people can get a hold of without taking out a third mortgage loan. Some are perfectly suitable for delicate trout fishing, while others would feel more comfortable in an urban industrial park, or in the deep blue sea.”
