Fast action, deep bending glass fibre fly rod with the power of a 6 weight and the delicacy of a 3 weight.

    What it's for

    • #4 short head or #4 Stuart Crofts dry fly lines
    • Small rivers, stillwaters. Tom uses his for carp in the UK in Summer.
    • Trout, Carp & Salmon up to 15lb

      The goal was to make a glass fibre rod that can handle double figure fish.

      That sounds easy but due to the weight of glass we had to design a taper which creates great line speed without feeling heavy. The California is actually the fastest rod we make. Because glass inherently bends and has feeling, we could push the limits of how fast and accurate this blank was.

      Stats

      • Weight : 145g
      • 3 piece
      • K series anti friction strippers
      • Balanced full flex action 
      • Hard anodised saltwater resistant reel seat with slide bands
      • Alignment dots
      • Glassfibre tube

      Lines

      • Short head #4
      • Stuart Crofts #4

      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.

      Tom's Carp setup 

      9' total leader length consisting of;

      Flies

      • sz 10 deer hair dog biscuit trimmed to sit low in water
      • Use a Rapala knot

      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

      N Lant London UK

      - It’s awesome it feels like a 3 weight bends like a 3 weight and casts like a 6 weight but it’s a 4 weight, I can cast 90’ the whole line!!! Like Tom shows on the video but also will cast short I’m so impressed with it!!!
