Just like a certain shaving brand that it rhymes with, the Redington Voyant ($299) is all about the smooth. And at the price, one of the best in its range for beginners. The high-performance graphite rod comes equipped with a Surge reel spooled with RIO Mainstream fly line and features either a half or full-wells grip, alignment dots and an anodized aluminum and wood reel seat — all packed into a weatherproof bag. The rod, which is available individually for $189, is stiff (but not too stiff) for the heavier-handed. Also makes a perfect gift for that friend looking to live his very own A River Runs Through It moment.
