Have you ever noticed how every field test you read in magazines has nothing but good things to say about a product? We all know that even great rods have their strengths and weaknesses. Certain fly lines perform incredibly on slow action rods, but are terrible on fast rods. Wading boots that feel fine casting for little trout out of a drift boat may kill your feet after standing ten hours in a boulder filled steelhead river. Bottom line: Not all gear is created equally. More to the point, a lot of gear works great for some applications, but not all applications. Let’s face it, fly fishing is an expensive sport. If you’re going to spend a good chunk of change on a new outfit, wouldn’t it be nice to know what the products strengths and weaknesses are.
