L.L. Bean Double L Classic Salt Water Fly Rod


L.L. Bean's new Double L Classic Saltwater Fly Rods ($265-$305) feature high-modulus graphite blanks and top-end components for taking on game fish ranging from striped bass to bonefish. The handsome, champagne-anodized hardware provides a traditional look and feel, while the rods' medium-fast action forgives the occasional mistake, yet provides enough punch for handling windy conditions. The Double L Classic rods are available in 8- and 9-weight models, and come with a Cordura nylon case and cloth sleeve. L.L. Bean, Freeport, ME; (800) 221-4221; www.llbean.com.
