    My “go to” for 90% of my trout fishing. From dries, to nymphs, to streamers this stick can handle it all. Love, love, love the grips on these rods and the old school look about them.

  2. Ben P

    Still one of the best trout fly rods ever. Powerful, crisp, sensitive, and did I say powerful? This is always in my boat whether I’m fishing traditional floating lines, sink tips, or Skagit heads. Might have taken it bonefishing too.. All with classic styling that looks, just legit. I also love this rod in an 8 weight and I’m drooling over the 1 weight!

    One of the most solid and lightweight 5wt rods I’ve used. Very classic design and with the ability to throw almost any line its paired with I keep this rod with me at all times. It’s my go to!

  5. Ian Cotter

    I’ve had this rod since 2010. This was my intro into RT rods and I must say, I’ve never turned back. I absolutely love this rod to death. It has been my go-to since the first time I casted it. I’ve caught a lot of different species on it and have casted every type of bug and rig with it. This RT has taken me to more fish than all my other rods. Love ya for that Red Truck!

    The quality that was put into these Diesel 5wt rods is incredible. It has turned into my go to rod when I’m fishing the back bay in San Diego for Bone fish, Spotted Bay Bass, Corvina and Croaker. Finesse fishing, When you need to feel every tap and bump, this rod delivers !!

    As a very experienced fly fisher, and a gear junkie, this is hands down the best rod I have ever used . I just recently caught a 20” 5lb rainbow on the 9ft 5w and then turned right around and caught 2lb smallmouth bass. Me personally I have paired this rod with a 1.5 lamson litespeed hard alox 2 1.5 size reel. If you want a more classic look I would highly recommend the diesel reel with Lelands Sonoma valley line and you will have one of if not the best setup on the planet . If you’re not sure about spending this amount of money on a setup, I have three words…… WORTH EVERY DOLLAR

  8. POTF

    This is an all around rod that performs way above what I expected. This is worth every dollar and then some. From putting down delicate casts to spooky trout, throwing heavy bobber rigs, and fishing streamers, this rod performs.
