what ever rod you go with your entire outfit (rod, reel, line, leader) shouldn't go over $200. IMO

My rod was $45 (i built it)
Reel was $35
Line was $30
Leader was a retired trout leader $0
Total = $110

Total number of fish caught = countless

I have beat up and snapped off so many rods hiking up brookie streams in the ANF..... got sick of repairing or buying new rods all the time so I just stopped taking fly rods native fishing. Anymore I just flick flies with the uglystik ultralight and a float... I'd be interested in seeing if I could find a little 3wt uglystik fly rod.

If you are using an ugly stik with flies you might consider a fiberglass fly rod. It's just as durable as an ugly sik (or nearly so) and is a better tool for the job. You will have to slow your casting stroke.

Another tip is to carry your rod backwards through heavy brush. That might prevent some broken tips. Also, a bow & arrow cast might prevent breaking tips on the back cast.

I've been using a 6' 2wt TFO for small mountain streams. Finished building a 5' 2wt Rainshadow RX7 and I'll try that one out in a few weeks in Tioga County.

$19 7 foot rod?? Now that sounds like just the ticket. Can't get too mad about breaking a twenty dollar rod. Do you know what weight it is? Must be like a 3wt.

Wright-McGill makes that 7ft eagle claw rod. It's a 5/6 weight fiberglass extremmely slow action . I tried mine with 4, 5 & 6 weight lines and it will load with all three. The only thing is when you have set the hook you have to set it a little harder. Because of the rod flex.

Went down to Dicks Sporting Goods tonight and saw that rod. Decent looking rod for the money. I'll probably give it a shot later in the summer.

those eagle claw yellow glass rods are great for brookie fishing. they really let the little guys show off when caught. takes a little while to get used to the slower casting action and hooksetting as mentioned, but for the money, they can't be beat! the new ones for 2010 have been updated with a slightly faster action and a nicer reel seat with wood spacer. don't know if those have made it to wally world yet. I've heard guys have found them online. nice thing with glass, if you want to speed up the action, go down a line size, if you want to slow it down, go up a line size. my graphite rods just don't seem as forgiving in that respect.
pair that rod with a medalist 1492 or 1494 reel and you'll have an instant classic combo that will last years and be cheap!!
oh yeah, try a DT line with one, if it doesn't load in close enough, cut a couple feet off the tip of the line to get the loading distance you want.

That'll be perfect for me... most of the brookie streams I fish are so small ya can jump accross them. Most of the time I only have the leader out, dont really need to cast.
