Most Helpful 5-Star Review
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Geoff fly fishing from Florida (FL) on Friday, February 23, 2018Great for pulling fish out from under docks/ mangroves or weed! The shorter 8ft rod allows for short casting presicion and quick casts when working tight areas. Tons of back bone and a really unique colour blank.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by BassOnTheFly from FLORIDA on Tuesday, February 13, 2018I use this for big bass and snook down here in Florida. It has some muscle behind it but still very sensitive. I love it and you can not beat the price at STP.
Reviewed by True North trout from Northern Michigan on Wednesday, January 31, 2018I have used the 6-8 weight rod for two seasons throwing everything from articulated deceivers and Circus peanuts to White bellied Mice patterns in the night. The short stiff rod allows for tight casting in close quarters and also ver effective for pulling fish out of densely vegetated ares while bas fishing. This is a workhorse of a rod, effective and well priced to give you years on the water.

“I'm relatively new to fly fishing but am mostly used to saltwater. I've used a 5/6 weight for a while and wanted to upgrade to a single rod for everything from trout to bass and possibly carp. How does this rod size up in versatility? I'm not too concerned with distance, more so accuracy and presentation.”
Disclaimer - I don't own this rod and have never cast it. However, as a freshwater flyfisher who is beginning to fish salt in the winters, I'd point out that most freshwater fishing is shielded from the wind and presentations are made in close to spooky fish. A fast rod that is good for salt (wind, distance) will not be the best for trout streams or carp in still water. Carp are actually very spooky fish, and light delicate presentations are key. However, once you hook up with a 10 pound fish a powerful rod is needed. I often catch channel catfish in our little lake on the fly, and trying to lift them off the bottom with even an 8-weight fiberglass rod is a challenge (exciting, though).. I'm buying this rod to experiment - I hope it will be a good choice for king salmon on the great lakes tributaries and for kayak fishing in mangroves during winters in Florida. I'll go back to my slower, softer rods for trout, smallmouth, and panfish (lots more fun to cast them, easier on the wrist, and they just put you into the zen of things a lot better than a stiff graphite rod can).
