Description

Description

This a featherweight but still lively with an impressive power reserve. The inherent action allows the use of a minimum of 3 lines : a DT-3, a WF-4 or even a true-to weight WF5! The rod will adapt to any small-stream situation due to its versatility : roll casting, bow-and-arrow casts, smaller flies, bigger ones, you name it. The great nervous action can maintain a narrow loop so pinpoint presentations are the norm. It carries the name of yet another Breton coastal stream, dear to my heart where I have lived many a treasured moment as a fly angler.

My advice

This rod is ideal for pretty much any situation one can find along smaller streams, casting dries upstream and nymphs down the other way. It is great for “aggressive”-type dry fly fishing when a lightweight, performance tool is required for quick hooksets on stealthy surface takes.

The rod builder’s note

“Whooee, this rod is so sweet: it has a super-nervous tip and quite a powerful butt for total line control. It’s not stiff at all yet superfast and responsive. It can take an array of different fly lines, from a 2-weight (yes!) to a WF-5 and always feel great. Here’s the my-one-in-a-million advice for you : pair it with a Snowbee Thistle Down 2-5 floating line, you’ll be sold forever!”
