Red Truck 8wt 9ft Fly Rod:

Walking slowly on a white sandy flat you are completely alert and looking for any sign of movement! You spot three shadows at 1 o’clock moving toward you. You begin casting with the wind blowing right into your face. Three quick false cast until you deliver the fly subtle delivery 5 feet in front on the fish. You wait for your fly sink. Just as you begin to strip the largest of the group darts to your fly and eats. You strip set and the fish begins to pull of line at an alarming rate. Bonefish on!

The 9 ft 8 wt is your bonefish solution, the one best answer for bonefishing anywhere. From the clear waters of the Bahamas to the sandy flats of Christmas Island the Red Truck Balanced 8wt Fly Rod will make every cast and presentation easier. A good rod makes casting in the wind and long accurate cast a breeze.

The Red Truck Diesel 8wt 9ft Fly Rod: At 9 foot for a 8 weight, this rod is balanced to cast flies in the wind effortlessly to their target. This rod was balanced to be accurate, powerful, and easy to cast.

    I recently fished a friends diesel 8 wt and had to buy one for myself. They’re great rods and cast like a dream, they compete with all the big name companies. The best part is you can’t beat the price. I’d highly recommend a diesel rod in whatever your desired wt is. You will not be disappointed!

  2. Ted Syhlén

    As previous reviewer said the Diesel rod is well comparable with major brands high end rods but at a affordable cost, I use this on windy days at the coast in Sweden but also superb for fighting northern pikes! If I would hit the salt in a tropical paradise then this would be my companion!

    This is my go to rod for stripers on the Maine coast to redfish on the gulf coast! This rod is a joy to cast and it’s tough as nails. The action is perfect, fast but not stiff. The butt section has some serious backbone when you find yourself hooked to a striped freight train. Love the unique blank texture , I feel it makes this rod “breathe” just a wonderful rod that I would put up against any rod on the market. Try it, you’ll love it!!
    P.s. I have it paired with the red truck 7-10 reel, perfection!

    This rod is bad, bad news if you’re a bonefish or salmon or whatever. I’ve hucked more hail mary casts with this thing than probably any other. Drop it in close and throw ice-melting loops at 20 feet. Then put your body into it and throw 90 and well beyond, if you’re nice to it. The power of this rod, with one back cast, makes it a serious weapon and one I’m still fishing.

    I have carried this rod as a backup on many adventures. When my more expensive rod broke, I really had a chance to fish it. I caught Peacock Bass up to about 10lbs. It through the Rio Jungle line with a type 6 tip beautifully. Of course we weren’t fishing wooly buggers either. Big flies, heavy line; just throwing meat all day long. The rod fared better than my shoulder. Next trip the expensive rod will be the backup if it gets fixed in time!!

    Received this rod three days after making the order. First impression, very nice. Extremely lightweight with nice matte finish. The rod provides very fast line speed, for tight loops with minimal effort. Looking forward to my first redfish with this fly rod.

    The Red Truck Diesel 890 is the perfect rod for casting medium sized streamers around 10-15cm on long distances. It has a really fast action and is powerful as well. That fast action allows a sensitive connection to your flie even in stronger winds, so you can even feel the slightest bites. I fish this rod mainly for northern pike in Germany and I can say that it has enough power handle even really big fish. In a nutshell, the 890 is my rod for medium-sized streamers on every distance, with every line, from float so sink 3, under all conditions.
