That shows to go you how important marketing and a catchy name is. All the top pros use Ugly Stiks, right?

And I only use "Orvis" brand flies.

Interesting how many of those brands are carried by WalMart, a fishing tackle source maybe not considered as the tackle destination by advanced anglers. But it don't take many individual purchases do it, when you have 19 gadzillion stores.

Price point is everything. Most people that have shakespear rods wish they could have something else. I know I did when I used one.

Ugly Sticks!!!!

Sheesh! I never bought a rod in my life because it was unbreakable. I have all of my rods custom made to my specifications and some of them cost $20 or more. I once paid $35 for a rod and another $30 for the reel.
