The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

The Predator rod is one of my personal rods for fishing for tiger musky. I will never forget that one time I had a boatside eat from a tiger. With the Predator, I was able to set the hook, play the fish, and land it all within 10 feet of the boat in just a few minutes. The rod had all the power and durability needed to accomplish that task.

The Redington Predator line of rods has been around for many years for a good reason. It represents a lot of value in a sector of ultra-fast rods that cost two to three times as much. Each rod is built for saltwater environments to combat corrosion. This rod is made with one thing in mind: casting big heavy wind-resistant flies at a distance, and it certainly does that well.

Ideal for
  • Streamer fishing for trout, bass, saltwater species
  • Casting a lot of line
  • Extremely Durable
Not ideal for
  • Heavy swing weight can make casting a lot difficult
  • This is not a "presentation" rod

The Redington Predator Fly Rod W/Tube is a 4-piece, fast-action fly rod designed to throw large flies and fight large predatory fish. Built with the intermediate to expert fly fisherman in mind, the components on the rod are designed to withstand the corrosive nature of saltwater.

Key Features:

  • Fast Action – This enables longer, more accurate casting.
  • Hard Wire Anodized Snake Guides – These guides are corrosion resistant and able to withstand harsh saltwater conditions.
  • Cordura Rod Tube – The included Cordura tube will protect the rod when traveling, or not in use.
  • Lifetime Warranty – This rod is covered by Redington's lifetime warranty.

Use Cases:

  • 5wt 9ft (590-4) is a good all-around rod for trout.
  • 6wt 9ft (690-4) is good for trout fishing on larger rivers and lakes.
  • 6wt 9ft 6in (696-4) is good for trout fishing on larger rivers and lakes.
  • 7wt 10ft (7100-4) is a great size for bass or smaller saltwater species.
  • 7wt 9ft (790-4) is a great size for bass or smaller saltwater species.
  • 8wt 9ft (890-4) is a good all-around saltwater rod for snook, redfish, bonefish smaller stripers, and blues.
  • 9wt 9ft (990-4) works well for larger saltwater species, as well as salmon and pike.
  • 10wt 9ft (1090-4) is a great size for delivering big flies to medium-sized saltwater species, such as tarpon, permit, barracuda, and albacore.
  • 11wt 9ft (1190-4) is a good rod for larger saltwater species such as tarpon.
  • 12wt 9ft (1290-4) is a great rod for larger tarpon or giant trevally.
  • 14wt 8ft (1481-4) is a two-handed rod for larger blue water species.
  • 12wt 9ft (1291-4) is a two-handed rod for larger blue water species.

Matt was so easy to work with. He answered all my questions and there were many. He offered detailed explanations for his recommendations and sold me exactly what I needed, nothing more and nothing less. He also gave me valuable information regarding the sport of fly fishing and not just the current equipment I was seeking to buy. It was an amazing experience. Thanks Matt!

Rylyn found a sale for the Douglas Sky G rod and recommended it. He said that this was the best rod in the market and so I bought it. We paired it with monic Trout Master fly line. I was not disappointed at all! The rod feels intuitive and natural to cast. I could cast more accurately and a longer distance than I ever did with my previous rod.

I recently purchased a pair of waders through Curated with Stefan’s help. They were very helpful and able to get me exactly what I was looking. Items were perfect for my price range and the days by the streams/lakes that I will spend my time at. I enjoy researching products on my own, and was worried Curated might take the fun out of things, but this service is great for people like me also. Whether you have an idea of what you want, or are just getting started looking I would highly recommend Curated, and Stefan!

Found a great deal on Curated for a Daiwa fishing pole. My sales representative, Josh, was very helpful in answering questions before the order. Even more impressive was how he and Curated responded when the rod was delivered broken (not their fault). They immediately helped guide me through the return process which provided me the confidence that this would be resolved without issue. New rod is on the way and I have already ordered a second one!
