TRAVEL FLY ROD 9’ 8wt. Here we have our Black Edition fly rods available in an 8wt. The rod is of fast action and 9’ in length. The blank is a satin finish with double stripping guides, with the rest of the guides being single foot and whipped to the rod with black thread. The Full Wells handle has the benefit of rubberized cork reinforcement and a decent sized fighting butt. The real seat is black aluminum. These are excellent value for money rods and cast very nicely.
