River 8ft 6in #3 4pce : With a medium to deep action the ideal companion for small streams. This rod also comes into its own on larger rivers where a dense canopy of trees restricts casting. Feeling light in the hand, perfect for diminutive flies and fine tippets where accurate casts are called for at close quarters.
River 8ft 6in #4 4pce : Possessing a slightly crisper action this 4-weight comes into its own when dealing with larger trout in tight spots. The forgiving upper section helps protect tippets as well as maintain a straight line path of the rod tip where short, precise casts are required, yet there is surprising reserve in the butt section to cope with stubborn fish, or longer casts.
River 8ft 6in #5 4pce : Blustery weather affects casting when applying too much power and sees longer rods buckle, this punchy 5-weight is well suited to exposed waters where quick fire casts are the order of the day using dry flies. That said enough backbone exists to for hurtling weighted nymphs into a niggling breeze.
River 9ft 0in #4 4pce : Developed for those venturing on to running water, or even intimate stillwaters this plucky 4-weight is a good all-rounder. It is delicate enough for presenting small flies on gossamer like tippets, yet packs enough punch to handle larger flies, or hefty fish.
River 9ft 0in #5 4pce : The crisp blank helps achieve tight, stable loops in the most hostile conditions. Whether you aim to cast a large streamer across a broad exposed river, or delicately present a small dry fly at distance, the NX1 5-weight constantly delivers.
River 10ft 0in #3 4pce : Designed for the many styles of short line nymphing, as well as delicate dry fly fishing at close quarters. It also has value when working sparse wet flies through thin water where finesse is the order of the day.
River 10ft 0in #4 4pce : Firm enough to present small dry flies attached to long leaders with pinpoint accuracy, yet has the ability to yield where larger fish are encountered.
River 10ft 0in #5 4pce : The progressive action means this rod it as home whether roll casting, or overhead casting. A great weapon for line mending and presentation (slack line) casts too. Whilst designed with short range dry fly and nymphing methods in mind there is sufficient reserve in the lower section for longer casts when needed.
Stillwater 9ft 0in #6 4pce : This is one of our quicker actions that generates high line speeds and pin sharp loops to penetrate stubborn breezes. A popular rod for those who look to a light line approach on stillwaters though equally at home of broad rivers, especially where larger flies are required, or there’s a need to battle gale force conditions.
Stillwater 9ft 6in #6 4pce : A compromise for those who split their time between boat or bank. This model has sufficient reach to dabble flies when loch style drifting, yet possesses the require authority to cope with headwinds for venturing around lake margins.
Stillwater 10ft 0in #6 4pce : The powerful lower section gives this 10 footer enough backbone to cast long lines from bank or boat. A blank that’s capable of handling a floating line when dry fly fishing subtleties are in order, yet is able to cope with the arduous task of heaving fast sinking lines to and fro and setting the hook on fish holding deep down.
