hmm, let me get back to you tomorrow. The setup I'm picking up tonight is literally $40 so I still have plenty of room in my budget. Could always use it as my main and the other as a backup or extra rod for a buddy that doesn't fly fish.

When did St. Croix do a Triumph fly rod? The Rio Santo has been their cheaper, made in Mexico, fly rod for at least 7-8 years.

So awesome, good looing brown. I found a cheap Redington 9' 5wt combo on craigslist I plan on picking up tonight. Couldn't beat the price but I'm still actively hunting for a solid setup somewhere inbetween a 7'6" and 8'6" 2-4wt. Gonna test my buddies orvis setup this weekend and make some comparisons. Have a bid on a st. Croix imperial on ebay at the moment.



Just curious, but what will you be targeting around here with a 2wt- 4 wt rod?

Pretty sure they rebranded the Triumph and sell it as the Rio Santo now. Anyway, it's sold and someone got a sweet deal.

Orvis Clearwater.

Going into an Orvis store can be intimidating but they have a Fly casting 101 class, its normally on Saturday mornings in summer. It runs about 3 hours. Alot of good instruction and not much sales crap. They do give you a coupon to get a good percentage off a rod/reel combo. The clearwater rod was $275 all up before tax with this coupon.

Since then I've cast a fly guides Helios 2 and my clearwater. I can't tell the difference. Orvis Clearwater often ranks in the top 25 of fly rods tested.

Awesome, if I didn't already commit to a 5wt I would've been all over that. Thanks for reaching out though. Word of mouth is you take great care of your gear and they are in top condition. Cheers to whomever picked up that setup!
