Note of the Day:
The most important part of picking fly rod is the line size it best handles. The line size determines how far you can cast, the amount of delicacy you’ll get, and how big a fly you can comfortably handle. Line size in trout fishing has very little to do with the size of the fish you catch, but line size is important in determining how large a fish you can land. —Tom Rosenbauer
