Re: Fly rods to kill for--made for the Smokies
It may not be as fancy as a Sage or Winston, but my vote for the perfect Smokies rod goes to my 7'9" St. Croix Legend Ultra. It is the older three piece version, but is unbeatable in my estimation. The only exception being if or when it's line becomes tangled in brush and if the tip snaps off as it did on my most recent trip to the park. Of course that isn't the rods fault but it was under warrentee and has already been returned to me after having been repaired!
