Gear: Kirk Deeter on the New Fly Rods

June 7, 2010 By: Marshall Cutchin

The “nothing earthshaking” opinions on fly rod tech will probably go away with the introduction of three new rods this year, says Field & Stream‘s Kirk Deeter. Deeter talks about three upcoming (or recently introduced, the case of St. Croix) fly rods that have already promised to add a little pizzaz to the cast.
“First, St. Croix has just unveiled a new rod called the ‘Rio Santo’ (which means Holy River but might just as well be called ‘Vaca Santo’ … Holy Cow), because it only costs $120.”
