Superfine Glass: Get ready to change the way you feel. Weve applied modern Orvis taper design principles to a classic rod-building material to produce a fiberglass rod thats smooth and slow, yet crisp and strong. The Superfine® Glass throws dry flies with a balanced touch and will even sling streamers when necessary.
With unsanded S-2 fiberglass blanks, uplocking cork and silver reel seats, and a hard chrome Litewire stripping guide, no details were spared in the making of this soon-to-be classic. A truly unique rod for the small stream fly fisherman. Had used it on the Lugg, Arrow, Hondhuu, Cantlop Brook & such like overgrown Border streams.
Unlike carbon fibre this is a strong rod which can withstand the rigours of small stream fishing. Rated for 3wt line it performs somewhat better with a 4 wt at short distance.
Highly recommend the Rio short taper floater for this rod. Because of the slow, full action this rod throws wider loops which is ideal when fishing a "klink & dink" (NZ) rig - thus avoiding tangles. Which occur with modern fast action rods.
Tip - when fishing this method ditch the "klink" and use a heavily winged Elk Hair Caddis - you will get much smoother casting and far more rises will come to the Elk - (especially in fast water) try it and see - perfect for this time of the year if you can find any fast water?? There are no scrapes, scratches, scuffs or otherwise on this rod. The handle is barely used. The rod is in excellent condition in all respects.
Please note - the photographs may show some reflection and some lint / dust on the rod this is not damage. I have been fly fishing for over 50 years and have never had a full action rod which is so "mellow" yet can punch a small fly into a confined space. Under tree branches with such unerring accuracy and delicacy. Where a backcast is impossible this rod will "bow and arrow" a fly with ease.
