If I had one rod, this would be the one (from prior model)
Comments: I really like the feel and weight of this rod. It is on the upper end of my current price range, and it is worth every dollar so far. I've used it a couple of times this Spring, and it will be my go to rod this summer.

Best Rod I Own!!!   (from prior model)
Pros: Sensitive, Durable
Cons: Does not come with rod tube or Rod Sleeve.
Best Uses: Steelhead
Comments: I bought an 8' Avid ML Spinning Rod with steelhead fishing in mind and absolutely love it. I wanted a rod with a bit more backbone and a bit shorter than the standard "Buggy Whip" steelhead rod. This rod is the answer. I have landed several nice steelhead with a 4# (as light as I will go) fluorocarbon leader with zero problems. If I had only one complaint it would be that they are a bit high priced and, for the money, they should come with a protective sleeve or case.

broken tip   (from prior model)
Comments: I received my new croix and after opening discovered the tip was broken. Called and talked to a fishusa rep and got immediate response. I was told not to worry, he would make a call and get right back with me. Within fifteen minutes i received the call back and was informed a new rod was on the way and should recieve it within 2-3 days. It was delivered on time and i was very pleased. I will definately do business with them again and highly recomend them to others.

Excellent Value Ultralight Rod   (from prior model)
Pros: Sensitive, Easy To Transport, Durable, Flexible, Accurate Casting, Good Tip Action
Best Uses: Small Fish, River Fishing
Comments: I use this rod for all species of trout in the smaller spring creeks of Western NC, near Asheville. I like these rods so much, that this is my second one (I also have a 5 footer that I purchased from FishUSA). It is so sensitive that even with the tiny spinners I use, I can feel the spinner blade vibrations through the handle, when retrieving the lure from a distance. I also have a St. Croix Avid fly rod that I purchased from FishUSA as well. I won't hesitate to purchase more equipment from them - they are very responsive and attentive.

Daiichi Salmon Egg Hooks
Daiichi Salmon Egg Hooks
(14)
Daiichi Salmon Egg Hooks were developed for fishing with bait, but are now also being used for artificial bait. Known as an egg hook, this style is generally used by trout and anglers using natural salmon eggs as bait. Today's fly tiers create artificial egg patterns to simulate salmon eggs and many prefer this hook style because the up-eye does not close off the hook gape and the angle of pull enhances hook-ups.
