And the 10ft versions are set to be a big hit with UK reservoir boat anglers.
Specifically designed to handle teams of flies on long leaders in often adverse conditions, they’re perfect for large stillwaters.
The 10ft 8-wt version that I’ve been using is as good a ‘pulling’ rod as I’ve held. It’s ideally suited to sunk-line work with the backbone to hook fish on a swept presentation, but with a forgiving tip that won’t spring hooks when a fish dives at the boat.
The four-piece blank is fitted with aluminium reel seat, saltwater-resistant guides and comes in a Cordura tube. There are also 9ft 5-wt; 9ft 6in 6-wt; 9ft 6in 7-wt and 10ft 7-wt versions available.
Teamed with a 7/8-wt Sixth Sense line, this rod is going to get a lot of hammer on my boat outings this season.
