Whoever thought fly rods would ever have new models every year like ski equipment...they don't innovate that quickly that you are going to miss out on something.... I can lay a sweet dry out with my little Orvis T-3 4wt. and I use my old Sage RPL 5 wt along the beaches. Both very fine rods. Yes, I want a couple new rods still, but only because I'm beginning to wear mine out. Don't get too hasty. Save your money for gasoline for fly fishing trips!....or your Non-resident fising license for Oregon at $106.25!!!

Why wait until August. Bring the damn thing out now. Hell, they are talking about it. So bring it out.

It doesn't take that long to build a rod. The sites own makers, can make one faster that August.

Just remember, it's all about marketing and exposure... Say something provocative , and the world starts chirping, and when they show up on the shelf , me trample each other like a bunch of fools to get them...
They make killer sticks already...

Oh good, another super fast wunder rod. I'll bet it'll be 1/64 ounce lighter than the next lightest competitor, and 0.25% stiffer.

And then they'll have ads in all of the fishing magazines with gnar-gnar guys pointing toothy fish at the camera. Fish and fisherman will wear speed-metal scowls. It'll be x-treem.

Built using the newset most expensive composite known to man. Guarnteed to make you cast further with a single haul, and the ladies will love ya! And we build one for nymphing, one for streamers, one for dries.................:hmmm:

maybe its an 18 piece rod you can break down a carry in your back pocket? or it has a built of tippet threader for those pesty size 32 midges?, or maybe it's a speyswitchfly rod with a kick stand? or....maybe it has built in electrodes so when you screw up a cast or forget to set the hook the rod shocks the piss out of you?

I had a fishing rod client until they ran out of money recently. When I asked one of their executives early on about their target market, he replied with a single word: "Grrrr!"

When I pressed for clarification he said, "Thirty-something males with testosterone poisoning."

LMAO! Doesn't Fly Fisherman magazine still say "The Quiet Sport" on the cover?

Twenty-some years ago, at the height of the Bo Jackson/Nike craze, we discussed printing up tee-shirts that read, "Bo does not know fly fishing."
