Look inside the fly box of an accomplished angler and what might appear as a level of fanaticism best addressed with a dose of antidepressants, is nothing more than a sign of experience. Row upon row of experience all neatly tucked into the foam of a well-organized system. Experience shows itself again when you see the aforementioned angler with a Legend Elite fly rod. With the first cast you revel in the smoothness and deceptive power of the crisp SC graphite blank with ART and IPC technology. Add in the incredible value and confidence of St. Croix's rock-solid customer service and you realize these rods are a no-brainer.
