Default Re: 6 weight 2 hander

I do know back aways I did order a St.Croix Legend Fly Rod from them (TD) and it had to come from St. Croix. (For some reason Bear's Den doesn't carry St. Croix) It's tough up this way unless I get an hour at Bear's Den, to test cast, we have no real FF stores and esp. catering to Salt Water. Lucky, I did like the rod even though it didn't magically make me a better caster. But it does what I needed it to do. So, back on track, sometimes you just have to research and order online,,, or make the drive.

All the fly shops in Central and South NJ have closed. Shannon's in High bridge is still open but far from me. Bears Den is a great shop.

Hey Joe, first trip out today with the beaulah 7wt switch. A pure joy to cast and fish with compared to my old rods. Sure did help that the schoolies cooperated. Did very well this AM. You should really enjoy that rod, good luck.
