Rent waders at the lodge. If the weather does not break she might want to be in the water. Need any loaner gear speak up someone might have extra. Heck bet she is more careful with her gear than I am ... ;)

Yeah JJ needs to see about Ugly Stick making him a fly rod. They claim their rods are indestructible.Don't worry Jon Larry's has more rods on the rack. LOL

Well good, cause I was about to start my own fishing park, with blackjack and whiskey!

Matter of fact, forget the fishing park!

Actually at one point shakespeare did make an ugly stik fly rod. I'm not sure if they still do or not? I remember considering buying one years ago. I own a couple of ugly stik spinning rods and I really like them both especially the ultralight. I've put my 2 through all kinds of abuse with no problems.

But the ugly stik design and materials did not translate well to a fly rod. It was heavy with a very slow action. Pretty much a dog really. It may have been tough but it wasn't a rod I'd want to fly cast very long.

Yet another interesting tidbit, makes perfect sense.. The things I enjoy about my uglystick may not translate well into a Fly rod...
