This four-piece rod has a nice forgiving casting action, making it the ideal rod for small-water and river work.
It’s light in weight at 3.3oz and with its reverse wells handle it feels good in the hand. It’s finished in an attractive metallic olive colour, which I quite like.
I have been using the GR30 9ft 6-wt for most of my dry and nymph fishing this year and it has been an excellent rod for teaching beginners with, with many going on to buy one.
There are 11 rods in the GR30 range, starting with a 7ft 6in 3-wt up to a 10ft 8-wt. The 9ft 5-wt is a great rod, superb for short-line work and ideal for someone coming into the sport.
