One of my favorite fly rod setups eliminate that kind of hassle. To fish it, you pull some line through the rod, extend the segments all the way, tie on a fly, and start casting. The line runs smoothly through the center of the rod, doesn’t seem to get hung up on anything, and reels in just as it should. I’ve caught a handful of fish on it, from little 6-inch rainbows to 12-inch cutthroat, and it’s a fun little rod to land a fish with. For anglers who prefer using a reel, this Reyr Gear rod is a blast to travel with, and a great little rod to keep in the car for impromptu sessions.
