I've just, well almost, saved enough green fishing vouchers to buy a new Salmon Rod. My present rod is a 13ft of a make I'm too embarrased to mention - well I thought it was a good one at the time. Too many to chose from though. With my budget of about £400, or exactly 723.079 of your US dollars. my short list is; Sharpes Gordon or Aquarex, Loop Blue or Greenline, Alltmor or Snowbee. I really want a rod that is good for long and short range on Scottish rivers in the autumn (thats the "Fall" to you guys) and the back end of the year. I fish the Nith so I'm really after a 15' 10 weight. Its also essential its a good Spey Caster.
