Pick up this medium action 8 weight fly rod in Idaho and you're nymphing for steelhead. The snow falls all around you as you power a cast into a tempting seam. Pick up this rod in Texas and you're battling both the wind and a school of redfish. The sun sears overhead as golden tails glimmer in the saltgrass. Pick up this rod anywhere and you'll see all the time, energy, and work we put into it. We'd be happy for it to be yours. Proudly made in Manchester, Vermont.
Why would we take the world's best fly rod and change it? The answer is simple. We're driven by constant improvement. Put this rod in your hands and feel the rush. You'll completely understand.
