What a good fly rod kit.
Reviewer: A viewer from JACKSON, WY USA
I was nervous about several things when building a fly rod with the 2 piece forecast kit from Batson. It took about a week but the peces fit together easily. The rod looked good and felt very smooth and was easy to cast as well as it was light. The first trout landed was on Henry's Lake. It took about six minutes to get him in and there was one problem. The net wasn't big enough for a 35 inch rainbow. A person nearby paddled his canoe over and landed the fish.
