    My first concern when buying a rod is what i consider to be the best casting tool.  My next concern would be price/availability.  Somewhere near the end of the list would be where it was made.  Im not going to buy a rod i deem to be inferior because of the location of its manufacture.  It is not my job to prop up a fly rod manufacturer or industry for that matter.  If someone wants to play martyr that’s their business just don’t get self riotous with me.

    And my previous post was not saying the TFO is better than brand x.

    I guess I’ll keep buying the better product and let you worry about who made it.

    I love how the reels are decorated with spiders and iron crosses and skulls…that will scare the trout into submission…

    Is this part of the “Meth” collection?

    Scott A3 9×5 with a English made Orvis Battenkill.  The Scott A series reminds me of the three bears.  The S is too fast, the G is too slow, but the A…its just right! As for the reel…it hangs there and does its job.  

    I should note i like the A4s at least as much but i dont have the history with them yet…

    One thought on packs, if you look for good packs rather back packs, slings, waist or whatever and look away from the fly-fishing industry, you can often find a great product for great price.

    Just a thought to keep in your back pocket.

    This is true

    I also am pleasantly shocked about Scott fly rods.  They are far and away my favorite rod maker, but i cant even buy one within a hundred miles of my home!  Im very happy to hear they are doing well!  Very happy!

    As far as my harsh comments on Simms go…im not happy they are selling direct but i was a bit quick to throw them under the bus.  Lets just say a bad day at work and a couple of good beers were at play.  😀

    I will comment though that while they may be *better* I am pretty sure i am not the only person on this board who owns multiple pairs of waders from various manufactures.  I can honestly say that i have been pretty happy with a couple of pairs that were less expensive than my simms, regardless of the brand of breathable material used.  More than likely i will continue to buy Simms as long as they stay American made.  If they offshore them and continue to charge American made prices…then we will have a problem.
