The 30-second tour 

It began as a supremely accurate 9’ 5” 5 wt. boat rod, with superb long-range mending abilities on both reach casts and on-the-water drift manipulations straight to the indicator. Field-testing proved it’s also a 5 wt. that impresses when it’s time to hop a gunnel and fish backchannel sippers on foot. The product of strong collaboration, this is a high-concept rod born of a deep need from storied guides and their long conversations with our design team. That extra five inches is the secret sauce, providing added lift on your back cast without feeling overwhelming, with the comparable length advantages of a 10-footer in a rod that feels more like a 9. Straight up, it’s a nymphing weapon and your dream foam dry or hopper/dropper combo all-in-one. Made in Vermont.
