Single hand fly rod anglers may debate the point that there is really no need to utilize two handed rods for the details of Trouting techniques. This is very true, and their point is valid.

But many fly rod anglers now have the desire to utilize two handed rods for their Trouting techniques, not only for it's efficiency and effectiveness, but more importantly: Simply for the joy of using light weight two handed rods while pursuing their favorite smaller game fish.

Over the past few seasons we have seen a very strong, and growing appreciation for lightweight rods within the two handed community. The community has come to realize that the diverse applications of two handed rods do not have to be limited only to the pursuit of Salmon and Steelhead. In truth: Many anglers have come to realize that literally all river borne freshwater game fish; both warm water and cold water are wonderful sport with the two handed rod.

Trouting with an extremely lightweight two handed rod is as lethally effective as it is fun to do. When balanced to proper lines, all classic Trouting techniques can be applied: Wet fly and soft hackle swing, dead drift dry fly presentations, streamer fishing, high stick nymphing, and indicator nymphing are all suitable techniques for the light weight two hander.

The 12'6" 3/4/5 rods are specifically designed for the smaller game fish enthusiast. They are tippet friendly down to 5X, and suitable for all applied Trouting techniques. They are ideal light weight rods for Small Mouth Bass, Shad, coastal Trout, and Landlocked Salmon just to name a few
