The hot competitions in the fly rod world these days are contested over that cherished middle ground, where performance meets price. How much of a stick can you really get, for how little money? This year’s standout comes from Redington. We took the Crux to the rivers all fall… blind-tested it against rods that cost twice as much, and Crux more than held its own. It’s a very solid value at $400. See Redington.com.
TROUT Media, the print/digital/and social media arm of Trout Unlimited, is partnering with Angling Trade Magazine to create insightful, honest, reporting and gear review content in the fly-fishing space. Both entities will be sharing various written reviews and videos on their respective platforms going forward. TU will bring reviews by everyday anglers, for everyday anglers, while Angling Trade will bring insights from professional editors who have been exclusively focused on the North American fly-fishing market for over 15 years. It will be a mix of gear reviews unlike anything produced to date.
