These are superb rods for pursuing game fish from 1 to 12 pounds.

They are ideal tools for all applied Trouting techniques: From high stick nymphing, swinging wet flies, to dead drifting dry flies. Both the 3/4 and 4/5 wt. rods do have the delivery capability to punch a bushy Stimulator into tough winds, yet will still have the finesse to allow a lofty, soft-landed parachute Adams over spooky back water gulpers. The 3/4 wt. rod is tippet friendly down to 5 X, so is an ideal ultra-light two handed rod for dead drift dry fly fishing.

When balanced to the proper line systems, they will best be used as two handed over head tools, total eliminating the physical burden of the single hand double haul. They are light enough in hand that they can be used as single hand over head tools if desired. These over head deliveries will allow the angler to easily and consistently reach distances in excess of 90'. They can also be used as two hand anchor point Spey presentations, easily reaching distances of 80'.

These are also ideal rods to use for targeting river borne game fish while standing in the casting platform of a moving drift boat, utilizing either overhead or anchor point Spey deliveries.
