    How much do you want to spend? I'd head to a flyshop & cast as many as they have in the price range you're thinking about.
    With today's rods, you could be happy with a $200 rod or $800.

    I've nuked them, then froze them. The Woolite will soften the stems up, they can become brittle after many years.
