Thanks Gerry, I have a TFO 3wt and I really enjoy it. *The St Croix Avid keeps coming up, so I'm definitely going to give it a try. *I must say I liked PA's St Croix a bit better than my TFO.
PA - LRO just had a closeout on older model Orvis rods, so I may have missed my opportunity... I'll keep my eyes open though, you never know.
