Redwing Fly Rods 7ft. 8in. type Vario/ Skish- Cane / Glass, 2/1 ( made that way), #6 line, oil finished cane with 3x3 node spacing, open grained walnut seat, black agate stripper. A slightly staggered ferrule model ( tip 3in. longer than butt), fiberglass ferrule, , light wire guides, Young style grip for deepest energy build-up. total weight 3.5 oz. Built here for speed and accuracy , larger flies, big water, boat tactics, and much easier on the wrists after a long day, without saying. The marriage of these two materials works as the cane controls the natural bend and tempo while the lighter tip allows for the use of a lighter line and overall lighter tip feel. If one reads Charles Ritz and the theory behind these rods; they have to be tried.
