I will have at least the 4wt Superfine Glass on the boat for client use this year - Glass is not dead!
Make sure you get that new Orvis Encounter Rod/Reel budget kit out there too. I'm impressed with its performance for its price ($159 for rod/reel/backing/line). I'd love to hear some more feedback from you and your colleagues on it.
