Re: Pairing lines to rods

I’d just rather teach them to cast better. That’s why every rod comes with a casting lesson. You’ve actually given me an idea for a great casting lesson. Give someone a rod and a bunch of different lines and teach them the adjustments. I reckon that would be a fantastic lesson. Thanks, Paul I think...

Re: Pairing lines to rods

I’d completely agree Paul... I would say (not that I have any background info to base this on :D ) that your market would definitely be people who can cast to a reasonable standard, or have made the commitment to and see this as a first step to improving... not because the rod will make them a bette...

Re: Pairing lines to rods

I don’t think so paul... the people I know all go regularly, but I think there’s lots of people for whom fly fishing is one of a number of things they do, I would imagine there are lots who go once a month and less...
