Finished rods available now

Trout Smith's Heritage Carbon

Full flex, vintage IM6 feel. Very light in hand, with a flex into the cork. These rods are designed for the person looking for a graphite rod that is not fast, and has a full rod bend to enjoy each and every fish brought to hand. I've personally never been one to enjoy graphite rods, but I have to admit after spending a good amount of time fishing with these rods, I'm happy to say I own one of each.  Step back, slow down, and enjoy fishing.

Trout Smith's E Glass


A wonderful full flexing rod in a deep red unsanded translucent finish. These rods flex deep with a recovery reminiscent of bamboo. Slow down, and enjoy this rod on your next trip. Great all around rods, dries, nymphs, wets.  I set out to build these rods very clean and simple with all cork seats, translucent silk wraps and comfortable flor grade cork grips. I decided to let these wonderful tapers speak for themselves.
