Also consider

    The goal was to make the ultimate outfit for the Rio Gallegos in Argentina

    The guides all prefer rods that bend. The difficulty for a rod that bends is wind. The Rio Gallegos is one of the windiest fisheries in the World. We reduced friction in the guides by using our K series strippers and air resistance around the blank by making it slimmer. In combination with our Scandi low diameter heads and Mono running line we benefit in beating the wind but also how delicate the lines land. And because it's a soft rod, you can user lighter tippets. The perfect sea trout tool.

    Stats

    • Weight : 285g
    • Length sections : 68cm
    • Length tube : 72cm
    • 6 piece unground natural carbon blank
    • K series anti friction strippers
    • Balanced full flex action 
    • Hard anodised saltwater resistant reel seat with anti jam threads.
    • Alignment dots
    • Aluminium tube

    Lines

    • Scandi Gallegos heads
    • Mono running line

    Leaders

    Use Straight 'n' Soft tapered leaders. They are the only leaders on the market that don't coil. They aren't shiny and they lay dead straight. They are a dull matt grey colour at the butt section and clear at the front.

    Rio Gallegos setup

    • Scandi Gallegos #7 28g 33' Float / Hover
    • Grinner knot to fly line welded loop
    18' total leader length consisting of;

    Onto the end of the tapered leader tie;

    Flies

    Strip

    1 pause 1,2 pause 1,2,3 pause strip strike

    Use Hybrid for tippet. It's fluorocarbon coated nylon that doesn't get weaker when wet. Wet knot strength is the variable competitors look for. It's very easy to tie unlike fluorocarbon which is what you need when the wind is blowing you off your feet.

    Customer's experience

    W. Lewis Yorkshire UK

    - The attention to detail that is Tom's signature and the six piece configuration makes it brilliant for smuggling into the house or for its design concept, world travel. The itch to try it overcame the stupidity of going to the river in flood and a below freezing temperature. I threw RioScandi and Skagit, OPST Ultra Short Skagit and Airflo Rage Compacts with line weights from 360 grains to 585 grains. The rod was a delight to cast all through that amazingly wide grain window. I have never come across a rod so versatile. (For you gram boys and girls ; (1gm=15.42 grains.)

    However, the icing on the cake was the three Gallegos lines that Tom sent for me to try. Like the rod the lines had been really well thought out. They took the Single Spey, Spiral Spey, Snap T and Poke casts in their stride and that stride was into a different Postcode with a delicate presentation at the end. An amazing combination of rod and line that perform as well as rods twice the price but with a nicer action and a better grain window.

    The Sensational 12" 6" 7 Weight Volition and Gallegos Lines

    I needed another twelve six seven weight like a hole in the head but Tom's Black Friday offer was too much to resist. Boy, I'm pleased I caved in. It's a great rod to look at due to the attention to detail that is Tom's signature and the six piece configuration makes it brilliant for smuggling into the house or for its design concept, world travel. The itch to try it overcame the stupidity of going to the river in flood and a below freezing temperature. I threw RioScandi and Skagit, OPST Ultra Short Skagit and Airflo Rage Compacts with line weights from 360 grains to 585 grains.
