GreenCaddis Ruby River Fiberglass Fly Rod
- Product Review (submitted on January 21, 2015):
- I haven't fished the rod yet but it did very well on grass. Pleasant cast, reasonable distance and accuracy. The real seat has a very nice burl insert. The rod looks pretty but has a few minor imperfections. The cork handle has lots of filler. (So did my TFO). I recommend a coat of cork seal before getting it wet and fishing it hard. The guides are very stiff. I would have preferred a little more give or spring in them to take the occasional accidental abuse. We will see how well they last after a few years of actual use. The rod finish isn't perfect. It has a few flaws you can feel if you run you fingers along the shaft. They aren't noticeable unless you really look for them. It won't hurt how it will cast and fish at all. I've used fly rods for over 40 years. This is a nice rod with good performance and excellent price for what you get.
