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.
