Years ago, a 9-foot 6-weight was the standard for western trout anglers. As rod materials have improved and rods have become lighters and stronger, the #6 has taken a back seat to the 5-weight. It is now the “in between” size for the transition from trout fishing to warmwater species. Capable of remarkably long casts, this rod also has the ability to make delicate presentations - especially in windy conditions where a #5 can't quite handle it. This is a good streamer rod, and it admirably casts the oversized, wind-resistant poppers, stoneflies and hoppers that are so popular on the larger streams of the high desert. It is also an excellent rod for ultralight saltwater applications on the flats, going after bonefish and small mangrove snapper.
The 9-foot 8wt is a versatile, medium-heavy outfit suited to larger flies and floating or sinking lines. It is the number one choice among saltwater anglers for flats fishing, as it is capable of handling the predominant flies used in that environment.
Here’s a truly great rod for heavy-duty freshwater applications and light-duty saltwater use. It casts like a bullet in the wind and has the power to handle all salmon species. It is the rod of choice for flats fishing when the wind comes up, and it will pull a big redfish back to the boat in a heartbeat. Bass fly fishermen love this model because it has the power to handle the large, bulky deer hair flies and poppers so popular for taking big largemouth out of lily pads and heavy cover. When the river gets a freshet and waters rise, the steelheader turns to the #9 for heavier lines and larger flies. It is a great all-around big fish rod.
Our 9-foot 10-weight is the second most popular choice among saltwater anglers. This rod is designed to handle big streamer flies, size 2 and above, and it is capable of pushing bigger flies at fairly reasonable distances. Also good for weighted flies and heavily weighted sinking fly lines, it comes with a large diameter fighting butt for cushioning when playing bigger fish. This is also an excellent light-duty tarpon rod. After all, they are not all 100-pounders.
Our 9-foot 11-weight is the second most popular choice among saltwater anglers. This rod is designed to handle big streamer flies, size 2 and above, and it is capable of pushing bigger flies at fairly reasonable distances. Also good for weighted flies and heavily weighted sinking fly lines, it comes with a large diameter fighting butt for cushioning when playing bigger fish. This is also an excellent light-duty tarpon rod. After all, they are not all 100-pounders.
The 9-foot 12-weight is your all around best choice for tarpon of 60 pounds or more. This rod is designed to cast and present flies with power and precision. Because it loads into the middle of the rod a bit, it is definitely what you’d call a “caster’s rod.” This rod is designed to put the brakes on fish like Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, and GT’s. Precise for both short casts and distance casting when you see them patrolling the flats.
One of our most versatile warmwater light casting rods, the ISR 662 has a fast taper for a more positive hook set and greater casting distance. The length provides better line and lure control, especially in deep water, where slack line may cost you a fish. It is a good choice for fishing minnow baits like the Long-A and Rapala, and the preferred rod for split-shotting worms and grubs. For walleye and bass, this is a good light spinnerbait and crankbait rod. It doubles nicely for a lot of light saltwater uses, too, including redfish, specks, small snapper and even permit, with more than enough power to handle the occasional lunker.
A fast-action, medium-light-power casting rod designed to fish bottom bounce rigs. Built with high-modulus graphite for maximum sensitivity and weight reduction, this rod also excels at fishing jigs, inline spinners and crawler harness rigs. If you find yourself in situations where you want to cast jigs to visible structure, this rod is a great choice.
