As with everything within the fly fishing community, we all strive for ?perfection? in our equipment, searching for that piece of gear that best compliments a given fisherman?s style or technique. We are all different in tastes, from rod, reel & line, down to our vest-hung accouterments. All are in search of the perfect rod, reel, nipper, etc. We buy, try, sell and trade throughout the process, looking for the perfect fit. Usually we all seem to find what we like. Yet what about the commercial side of the fly fishing world, as rod companies strive for that golden nugget that will gain them the coveted ?market share? they all seek in order to remain afloat? It seems these days that rod models change yearly in many cases. If you like a model, best grab it fast because in less than 2 years it could be gone completely and no longer made.
