I was packing a suitcase with my wife for our holiday in Greece next week when she noticed I had placed my Guideline RSI rod in the bottom of our case. She then proceeded to ask me are you really taking your rod? To which I replied it would be rude not to.. This rod is an amazing bit of kit. If you are interested in testing one, Fly Only have them in stock. This rod is great for salt water and still water fishing and I cannot speak highly enough about it. I will be using mine out in Greece and if I bump into any nice fish I will try and blog them.
