Universally recommended as an angler's first fly rod, the 8-foot 6-inch 5-weight represents an ideal balance of strength and capability. Perfect for streams large or small, our Superfine Touch 865-4 is the first step in becoming a full-fledged trout bum. With its slow, Full-Flex action, and 5-weight versatility, it can cast nymph rigs into the wind just as easily as it can set down tiny dries. You will appreciate its delicate presentations, as well as its ample reserve of power, as you explore remote mountain streams or fish from a driftboat. It's a true do-it-all rod for the angler that enjoys variety. Made in Manchester, Vermont.
