Before I start hitting the internet sources, I thought I would reach out to SPEY PAGES friends. Building grandkids (boy is 9, sister is 6) there first two-handers. Still haven't purchased blanks, guides, thread clear coat, but will soon. Appreciate your time. Not into getting high-end sticks but rather a beginning stick that will build a fire. These sticks will be used on mainly stream trout and we'll roll cast out on the lake also. Passing this great passion ON!
