    This beautiful light weight trout rod casts very nicely. It has a graceful fast casting action to it. This is my go to rod for small Sierra streams in California. When I want to cast a small gnat or a big ol’ hopper this rod gets the job done. when paired with a quality WF fly line this rod will do its magic. I also use this rod to swing soft hackles, and nymphs as well.
