Fly Rods

Picking a fly rod that’s best for you is no easy task. With so many quality rods to pick and choose from it’s difficult to make the right choice.

In 2001, I chose the Diamondback Rod Company to build my rods because of their professionalism in rod design, finish, quality of rod blanks and their reputation for standing behind their product. I wasn’t disappointed.


I have fished each of these rods and I'm convinced you will find the quality in performance both casting and playing big trout that you rarely plan for, but seem to show up when you least expect them to take your fly.

 

Each rod comes with a lifetime guarantee to replace the broken parts as long as the manufacturer is still in business. Without the overhead of owning a fly shop, you will find these rods are priced well below the top rods on sale in the marketplace today. No one can match the price for the performance. If you have questions please call me direct. I know you won’t be disappointed.

Temple Fork Outfitters makes two inexpensive rods that I feel work well for Stillwater anglers. They both cast and fish well. Their signature model is best suited for beginners or those who don’t get that opportunity to fish as often as others. Everyone needs at least one back up rod and this rod is a perfect fit for your first rod or the rod to put that second reel and line on. The other rod that is a step up is their BVK series. This rod has a stiffer butt section which produces more power for longer casts, casting across wind currents or handling larger weighted flies without extra effort from the caster. It’s a rod I use quite often for my Stillwater presentations.

The Echo rods were designed by world casting champion Tim Rajeff. This rod is a cannon designed for powerful casts and longer distances yet with a tip section soft enough to absorb the added shock when setting the hook. I prefer and use the 9 foot, 6 weight model for those opportunities when wind is a factor or the chance of hooking big trout is a possibility. This rod casts and fishes very well reducing the need for extra power on the anglers part. The 5 weight model is excellent as well only with a slightly slower tip section and softer butt section. Both rods will do an excellent job when you choose to fish over stillwaters that harbor big fish.

All rods come with cloth bag. TFO requires a small charge if the tip or butt piece is broken.

Note: By using fluorocarbon tippets and a loop knot to tie the fly to the tippet in conjunction with a soft tip rod, you can use heavier tippets reducing the risk of break-offs
