A month or so ago Rugged Creek sent me a couple rods, reels and some fly line to test out. I did, but before I mention anything I should say something – my thoughts on them could now be seen as biased. Between testing these new items and reviewing their Classic Switch Rod awhile back, read review - here, I’ve gotten to know them and them me. During a recent conversation they asked me to join their team. After some deliberation, I accepted the offer.
That being said, and before I say anything else, I would like to celebrate by offering a 10% discount and free shipping within the Continental U.S. on your Rugged Creek order. Just call them with your order and tell them Troy sent you. Currently, a promo code is in the works to enter at checkout on their site… but until then give the ol’ fashion way a go. It’ll save you money and you’ll talk to good folks in the process. Head over to Rugged Creek – here and make your list then contact Jake at 208-760-0937 to place your order. This offer is for the entire month of September, 2013. Share this with friends and family, let them know how to get the deal too. Feel free to contact me – [email protected] for further questions.
What follows might sound and seem sales pitchy but I wouldn’t have joined their team if I didn’t think of them as reputable. Additionally, I don’t claim to be the ultimate “fishy dude” or a “world renowned” caster but I know what works well and have gotten good feed back from people I’ve fished with and have tried these rods. First, their good honest folks who love fishing and are budget minded. Second, they recently added a line of single hand rods that really perform. The 5wt is a great all around rod that can cast close in accurately. Nevertheless, if you wish to impress your buddies in the parking lot and launch a smooth long line with a massive double haul, it can do that too. The 7wt has been doing great with big bug demands, stripping streamers to browns and popping mousers to bass. Third, they teamed up with Steve Godshall to work on line devolvement… can’t really go wrong with that. Forth, their Classic and new NXS switch rods are good little sports car rods. Whether it be for nymphing or swinging they’re fun and easy to cast and fish. Fifth, they listen to criticism and look to improve on every step. To me, it just seems smart to get in early with such a company.
Not much of a review because… well I’m affiliated. I’ll leave it at that.
