EastFork fly rods are made with a unique blend of extra high modulus graphite materials to create a slim diameter, slender profile blank that is capable of punching long casts out there with a lot of line speed. The fast taper and stiff power design helps the anglers carve out tight, aerodynamic loops for excellent line control under all conditions. The rods are a beautiful, rich cabernet red with our custom-machined "yin-yang" bronze anodized reel seat that features a very stylish "burl" cork insert with the G.Loomis Skeleton Fish logo branded right into the cork. The rods are 3- and 4-piece, depending on the length and come in a soft, protective rod sock and travel case. The EastFork fly rods offer not only great looks, but match up nicely with the EastFork fly reels. These rods are a nice blend of performance and high tech design with less extravagant componenty to keep them at a mid-level price point. A real value for such a beautifully designed fly rod.
