I’m big on value, so I was interested to see the Field & Stream pick for best gear of 2011 being the Pursuit from Redington.
Of the fly rods tested (some pushed $800), nothing could touch the Pursuits for value.
The reason nothing could touch them might have something to do with the Pursuit coming in at about $120. They run up to a 9 weight and comes in 2 or 4 pieces. Basically, if you are looking for a back-up, or if you are getting into the sport or if you just like value… well… $120 is kind of hard to beat.
I was going to get a Pursuit loaner for Andros, but it turns out they weren’t going to be able to get it to me in time, so I’m bringing a couple other Redington rods along, in addition to my Rise 8 and maybe one or two other rods… I’m not going for long enough to get all the gear I want out into the field, that’s for sure.
