Rod with feel

I bought the 10’#4 wow it’s a lovely lovely rod with loads of feel and really light weight, I also luv the fact it’s a 5 piece meaning it packs down much smaller than the usual 4 piece rods. Many thanks Colin.

The Microlite GT really is a thing of beauty, and we're pleased you're loving yours. Thanks Colin!

Microlite 10' #4- Grayling slayer

Some nice grayling caught on Sunday, most to a Grayling Slayer. Microlite GT 10' 4 weight is incredibly versatile for dry fly or various nymphing methods.

Very impressed with its performance

I’ve been using this rod for about a month & have been very impressed with its performance. Here is a list of what I like about it:
• It has a crisp but progressive action that does several things. It effectively casts a wide range of line weights from a 0.55mm diameter micronymph line to a 4 weight. It is forgiving enough to give good protection to light tippets (0.10mm/7x)
• The stand-off single leg rings hold the wet line off the blank which improves casting distance
• The matt black finish helps to reduce the risk of spooking fish
• The super-slim quality cork handle is very comfortable & not excessively long
• The high quality down-locking reel seat & light-weight blank & fittings help with the rod balance when Euronymphing

In my opinion this is not a rod for bullying big fish whilst using heavy tippets, or for fishing big streamers. It is also not a rod for casting huge distances, but it is capable of casting just a 20’ leader in calm conditions, whilst performing well at all normal casting distances. It is a rod for finesse-fishing, perfect for dry fly work with 5x to 8x tippets & for Euronymphing. So far I have landed wild brown trout up to 3lb 7oz with it & this rod bends right down to the butt whilst playing these big fish, absorbing all of their plunges & surges.

Microlite GT bliss

Having fished for 30 years I am sure I have plenty of casting faults but can cast most rods. However the microlite feels effortless and sensitive. Adding 20% more to distance but turnover is also exceptional. Well worth every penny. Another awesome rod. Thanks Tom.

Great to hear. Thanks Luke!

Gt 4# großartig

Also nach bisher 3 Tagen angeln mit der Rute ist sie mein Liebling. Die Rute lädt sich mit etwas Schwung gut auf. Ich hab bei Wind und Hindernissen erstmal nur 15 Meter geworfen. Hat funktioniert und eine 3 kg Lachsforelle auf Wurmimitat gebracht. Es gab keine Probleme. Nur den Zoll nach Deutschland musste ich Zahlen!

I adore this 4 weight!

Since I bought that microlite 4 weight, I couldn't ever think about using my 7 or 8 weight again. I adore this 4 weight, can feel the fish through the handle.

Well impressed!

Just a very brief line to say how pleased I am with the 4 weight rod. Took it to my favourite local water (the river Blau in Arnegg) to try it out. The river has become really choked with weed over the summer. Quickly hooked a 4 pound rainbow, which would have normally been a bit of a challenge with so much weed about. The extra power of the 4 weight dealt really effectively with it though. The shock absorption of the tip is excellent when battling a powerful fish. You could use this rod all day without getting tired. Was well impressed.
