IM6 Graphite

The 5wt gives you excellent presentation, pinpoint accuracy, and some extra stability you might need for casting larger bushy dries or weighted nymphs. Fantastic on technical waters where you may need to use more wiggle, hook and puddle casts, the extra beef in the butt makes these easier and more controlled. Windy days are no problem and even light saltwater work is well within the rod’s capabilities.

High quality un-sanded IM6 graphite blanks. These legendary blanks have the perfect balance of speed, performance, and fun factor! Multi-action 5WT, these rods are faster than glass rods, but still has a soul and feel when compared to the most modern broomsticks.

These rods feel fast in hand but will flex deep. Super fun rods that are 4pc & 6pc to pack down to travel anywhere. This is your next do-anything utility rod fly rod.
