Checking out the new to the show Q Series of rods from @loop_tackle. The folks at Loop have developed an entry level offering to get you into a Loop fly rod for under $230!! They didn't cut any corners, either. With the light weight and matte finish you're going to get a quality rod. . #LoopFlyRods #LoopArmy #flyrods #flyreels #shootingheads #flyfishing #flygear #IFTD17 #SuburbanAngling

Checking out the updates to the G Series of rods from @scottflyrods. Naturally, I gravitated to the 2 weight, but the heavy rods are sweet casters as well!! . #ScottFlyRods #flyrod #flyfishing #IFTD17 #SuburbanAngling

Had to check out the @FairFlies booth after seeing one of their videos. 5 materials are packed into these brushes!! Originally designed for Salmon and Steelhead in the PNW, they're finding that the possibilities in other fisheries are nearly limitless! Can't wait to try some in the Florida marshes!! . #FairFlies #EthicallySourced #flies #flytying #flytyingjunkie #IFTD17 #SuburbanAngling
