Other Brands

There are so many different type of travel fly rods on the market. But many of them are not branded. And lots of them are low quality products. To be honest, I couldn't recommend them to anyone. Fishing while travelling has to be enjoyable. I would hate it, if I take a fly rod to a dream-like location and it disappoints me at the very first cast.  My name is Fish.
