This rod is at home in the hands of an expert or a beginner! Its not overpriced but it performs very well. It will do pretty much anything you need it to. If you are looking for a quality rod that wont break the bank, then this rod is for you.
Ideal for

  • Can handle large nymph rigs down to tiny dry flies.
  • Moderate-fast actions gives it more forgiveness and a really smooth feel.
Not ideal for
  • Can be tough in super windy conditions because it is slightly softer than a normal fast action.

I'm an intermediate angler with little knowledge of equipment. Rylyn was very responsive to all my questions, even the ones I thought were stupid. Very open about what he does and how he is paid. I highly recommend him.

Helped me with some valuable fly fishing knowledge that I lack coming from the conventional fishing world. Hooked me up with a good starter rod and even price matched it with another company. Will be coming back for a reel soon.
