Guys I have been watching Cabala’s website now for the past month for a drop in their Redington Classic Trout fly rods. Well today they drop the price from 100.00 to 74.97. I was viewing Redington website this morning and they still have the same fly rod for 149.95, which is the full price for this rod. I also talk to Cabala’s to find out why they had dropped the price of their Classic Trout Redington and they told me that it is a special that will only be good until the first of October. So if you of you guys are looking for an outstanding fly rod without the heavy price tag this is the fly rod. I own 4 Redington fly rods and I can honestly say that it is one of the best fly rods I have ever used. I am so impressed with the workmanship of the rod and the lightness the fly rod possesses. I landed a 3 ½ lb. spot back in the spring using my 5 wt –9 ft. The 5 wt. rod weights in at 2.9 oz. Their 7 ½ ft. 3 wt. is 2.3 oz. I get nothing from Redginton for passing this information along to the fishing community. I just wanted to let you guys in on what I think is a fantastic deal. By the way pair this rod with there lightweight reel and you will have a nice setup.
