outcast fly rod review


The Outcast rivals an Echo fly rod as it is indestructible. The rod is perfect for turning the feistiest of saltwater fish. It also doubles as an excellent stripper and musky fly rod. Casting large bulky flies into a strong wind is no problem for the Outcast. Available in line weights 6, 8, and 10, all 9 feet in length.

drifter fly rod review


The Drifter is a perfect all around fly rod. Available in line weights 3 through 8 and lengths 7 feet through 10 feet. A durable rod with a medium-fast action and sensitive enough to feel the slight tug from a trout but beefy enough to put the brakes on a large pass. The best thing is the rod is affordable and supported by a lifetime warranty.
