From Sage Hen in Truckee to Yellow Creek the Red Truck Micro Creek Fly Rod is perfectly balanced for micro creeks. Micro creeks can be brushy and difficult to fish but with a properly balanced rod you will enjoy every cast and fish

    I wanted a 1wt for dry flies and small stream fishing. I did not want a rod shorter than 7’6″. I narrowed my options down to the Sage Dart, Red Truck Diesel, and Orvis Superfine. I decided to go with this rod even though I did not have the ability to cast it first. Glad I did. I love the action! I can throw a size 16 nymph with an indicator and split shot. I have had no problem landing 16-18 inch fish, and the little fish are a blast on this rod. I am looking at getting a longer 3wt now, and I will be strongly considering the 8’9″ Red Truck Diesel. For the price, I am blown away by this rod. This rod has made me realized that spending $800 for a rod is not necessary.

    This is a wonderful rod as long as you live somewhere there isn’t any wind. I have fished it a lot and really enjoy it on a small stream early in the morning. About 11:00 am I really start struggling because the wind interferes with my presentations. Go for the 3 weight (at least in Idaho)

    Purchased this rod for small southern Appalachian brook trout, and warm water applications for panfish. It is an absolute joy to cast. Has amazing distance, and even does well in light breezes. I have had owned countless rods at that cost 2-3x more, and are not nearly the quality of craftsmanship. Grip is super comfortable, and one of the finest in the “ultralight category of sub 3wt rods. I can throw up to size 8 panfish poppers with ease at short-medium distances, and delicately cast small dries over 40ft. The rod is a little stiffer than a lot of 1 wts on the market, simply because the length. Lots of the 1wts out there are 7 ft or shorter. The length (7’9”) however does give better power for casting distance, and mends extremely well. Because of the rods sensitivity it still provides a world of fun fighting small fish, and bends deep on modest bluegill and trout. I’d recommend this rod to anyone looking to get into ultralight fly fishing. I’ve even caught some larger bass on it as well, and although it is an ultralight, it can get the job done on larger fish when combined with a quality disc drag reel. Cannot recommend enough for anyone wanting a 1 or 2 wt rod that will “do it all” . I will be purchasing more Red Truck fly rods in the future.
