    What is a good quality fly fishing outfit thatI can use for bonefish once? after I will use it for pike and carp. I was thinking orvis streamline our saint Croix Rio Santo in an 8 wt but I'm open to all suggestions.

    Have never fished the Santo blank but I have owned several St. Croix Imperials and loved them all.

    Have not fished the Orvis blank either.

    My suggestion would be to visit your local fly shop and take a few fly rods for a spin before choosing one you like. Different actions, handles, lengths and so forth are a very personal choice.

      I haven't owned a factory rod in that range (I roll my own), but played with quite a few doing demos in the big box sporting goods store I worked for when I was younger. In my limited experience, once you are weighing St. Croix vs. Orvis, you are not going to get a "bad" rod, nor will you find a "better" rod. The differences are personal preference, rather than quality. I would suggest that you find a fly shop that lets you try both and make your decision from there. Failing that, my local Bass Pro has demo days where you can try different rods. Your's might, as well.
