Comments: I am new to float fishing this year and was looking for something a little more informative. I love my Raven rod and thought their guide would provide more than their web site. Their web site has pretty much the same thing as the guide but you can't print from it. I took my guide the first couple of trips out to help with float selection and shot patterns.
