Tailwater Outfitters Toccoa Fly Rod: High Performance 4 piece, Fast Action IM8 Graphite With Rod Tube.

 PartNumber: 4905   |   Asin: B0197J9Q22

This is positively one of the best rods you can buy for the price. There's rarely a need to spend hundreds of dollars or more on a fly rod, and this rod will prove that to you. Product Specifics

- This is a 4 piece, travel ready rod

- It's fast action for longer casts, handling windy conditions, and has backbone for determined fish.

- Made from IM8 graphite (carbon fiber). It's designed for maximum sensitivity and durability. So you can focus on presentations and fighting fish, not breaking your rod.

- Your rod will be protected in a four compartment cordura rod tube. Each rod section has its own cozy compartment to feel safe in.

- The rod tube includes an adjustable shoulder strap for worry free bushwhacking and long approaches. Sling it over your shoulder and go.

- Assembles easily via alignment dots, which help get the sections lined up right the first time.

- Stylish dark gray color: looks great, and is a natural color to help avoid spooking fish with overly flashy or distracting colors, thread, etc.

This rod is intended to meet you where you're at: a great first rod to enjoy for years, or a solid choice your go-to streams for the more experienced fly fisher. If you ever get the chance, we encourage you to stack it up against rods that cost two or three times more.

Model: Fenwick   |   Asin: B07LH6S9JH

The HMG features an anodized aluminum reel seat that is ready for fresh- and saltwater exposure, and has a -grade cork handle that feels secure and comfortable in your hand even after long hours on the water. Fenwick included its cloth-covered rod tube and rod bag to make it easy to transport the 4-piece rod safely no matter how you're getting to the water.

Features

  • Material: graphite
  • Length: [3wt] 7ft 6in, [4wt] 8ft, [5wt] 8ft 6in, [6wt, 8wt] 9ft
