This new Drift range of Wychwood fly rods has been designed specifically with the modern river angler in mind.
Produced using super-fine grades of carbon, these lightweight and slim line fly rods feature an action that suits all styles of river fishing. Rather than the overly stiff rods of yesteryear, often designed to propel a large dry fly miles across a large river, these rods are intimate.
With the new fly lines and lighter tapers that we now have at our disposal, we can get so much closer to our quarry and when fishing at such close range, rods with softer, middle to tip actions, as featured on the Drift range, are far more effective.
Drift rods will allow you to hook and hold fish at short and medium range with very thin tippets, small dry flies and or nymphs, without fear of the hook pulling out. You can also take your time and let the rod take the strain when playing big fish in fast water, the soft action will ensure every lunge is cushioned effectively.
These tactical fly rods feature an understated matt black finish, with black, lacquered whippings and olive highlights. The new P cork handle, features a camo look to ensure that it is discreet, not as bold and bright as the usual cork, in any challenging fishing situations.
The rods also feature a unique 20cm marker whipped the blank above the handle, in most competitions, only fish of 20cm or more are counted.
With high end cosmetics, Pac Bay guides throughout, cut way and anodised reel seat, featuring a visible rod blank, these rods look as good as they perform!
managed to have a look at one of these before the release date and its a great little rod! I'll be buying one as soon as they come out from YGA
