    They are! I know of a couple dudes on the Togiak, that averaged triple digits, on every trip with 4-6 guys on board! This was a truly epic Silver season, and I had as much fun as a guy could have!

    You can't buy rods at guide, or pro-staff prices, for others. It will just make it harder for the other pro-staff, and guides to get what they need... at very least, just don't advertise it! Lol! ;-)
