If you¿'e looking for a simple, no-nonsense answer to the question of which rod to buy, the CAM SIGLER COMPANY may just have your solution. Cam Sigler has been fly fishing in salt waters longer than he cares to admit, and he has poured all of his experience and knowledge into creating a rod that offers everything you need ¿-and managed to do it at a surprisingly affordable price.
Designed for the traveling saltwater fly fisherman, his three-piece, 9-foot graphite rods provide all the power and accuracy you want and all the backbone and lifting power you'll need. The simple design offers sleeved ferrules each overlaid with an extra layer of glass for strength, high-grade cork grips, a graphite reel seat, carbide stripping guides and extra-large stainless-steel snake and tiptop guides. All rods come with a nylon-covered PVC travel case and an unconditional guarantee. The rods are available in 8-, 9-, 10- and 12-weights and retail for $249.
In addition, Sigler offers a three-piece, 14-weight blue-water version designed to tackle the largest offshore predators. This monster features EVA foam grips and a specially designed, anodized-aluminum swivel gimbal (with a cap) for locking into a conventional fighting belt. This rod retails for $349.
