EMG Angler Reviews

We needed an 11 foot rod which would very easily cast 15 yards with only one backcast. It had to be a 4-5 weight so that it could be used for nymphing and for lake fishing. It had to have oversized guides, just because Bob and I think that is nifty....not only did they deliver, they delivered in spades! When I was field testing the rod, there were so many anglers who fell in love with it, that the rod is now in production. No guff.
