    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!
