Stalking trout on a small stream requires stealth and delicate presentations. It also requires the right tools. Here are three big-value small-stream rods that get the job done – the L.L. Bean Double L, Redington Classic Trout and St. Croix Avid.
Nice rod in a nice package. The Double L’s cosmetics and rod tube are some of the best in the category. The product’s solid on-the-water performance paired with L.L. Bean’s 100% satisfaction guarantee make this a no-worries go-to rod for the small stream.
