I’ve managed to take the H2 out on a couple of trips and at the end of each, I’ve been very reluctant to send it back.
I got to take it to Cuba back in 2012 and this year I got to take one to Long Island.
I know I’m on record as saying the reel is really the important thing, and I still agree with that. And yet… I really love this rod. It is light and powerful and accurate and, well… ya know… it is a good rod.
We live in a good age, a golden age of fly rods. There are so many out there and overall, they are of a high quality. So, you are not shy of options, and even with all those options, I’m pretty confident in saying, this would be one of the best.
The rod is just plain goodness.
So, good folks at Orvis… I’ve got some bad news. The rod got broken/lost/stolen, so, yeah, I can’t send it back. 🙁
