Created to meet the exacting demands of today's fly fishers, these rods offer a remarkable level of performance suited to beginner and expert alike. Both distance and close casts are smoothly delivered by rods that are light, balanced and accurate.
Designed and tested by Danny North, Sportfish Purecast rods have set a new benchmark in fly rod design. Within the range, you will find a rod perfect for your fishing and capable of handling any water you may visit.
Danny R North : Sales Manager, Sportfish Winforton says "When designing this range I took into account just where you would use them and designed each to do a specific job. The 7ft 0” #4 is designed for small river and stream fishing with a slow middle action so that the rod loads quickly with little line out. On the other hand the 9ft 6”#7 has a faster tip action because you will probably be trying to cast those extra yards on your stillwater. Each rod is tailor-made for you.”
To compliment the performance of these rods top quality fittings are used throughout. No shortcuts have been taken and no other rod on the market offers so much value at this price.

Fly Fishing & Fly Tying July 2011 Review "A comfortably shaped handle makes a great first impression. Good-looking matt rod, nice slim blank, light in the hand. Casts short well, smooth pick-up-and lay-down, excellent long shoot for distance and consistently accurate. The action seems fairly fast but this rod strikes a super balance between power and 'feel'. A very well balanced fishing rod."
