A first fly rod for anyone of any age. I have designed this collection to be the one that will give you the balance and quality in casting that is required to learn fly casting correctly. From the moderately fast gloss translucent gray blank to the African Blackwood butt cap these rods are crafted to please. Hard chrome guides and reel seat are beautifully applied with deep blue nylon thread coated with ultra high UV resistant epoxies. The natural, burl and composite cork grip is made to last as every grip is built on the blank and not just a slip on as with most rods. E X P L O R E R Fly Rods come complete with aluminum tube and sock.
