MSR Angler Reviews

I had a chance to fish the rod last evening for the first time.  It has gobs of power!  The rod I believe says #5 on it.  I used a Cortland 444 SL line with it.  Casting is easy with a high line speed.  It does dampen well. This rod will do the work of a #7 casting #6 bucktails, #4 wets and even #6 Crazy Charles SS hooks, weighted eyes and all!  I was able to cast this stuff a long distance with no effort at all.  When it came to dry flies and cursing rainbow trout I could get on them fast even at a distance.  It cast well up close also. When it comes to casting it is the best I ever had in my hands. The fit and finish is on a par with any rod out there and better than most.  The tip never once moved on me.  The cork handle is just right. The spacer and reel seat are beautiful and functionally sound.

Now about the new rod, which in a word is just excellent!  The first day I took it out, a vicious cold front had just blown through...and when I arrived the next morning , I was greeted by sleet and a 40 knot "breeze". It amazed me how far I could punch out casts in these conditions. Also, the line control of this rod was something I really was impressed with. This is perhaps the single best feature...and is a huge asset in these rough trouble casting small dry flies either and perhaps most importantly it handled a 2 pound trout with ease.
