Times were when multi-piece rods were floppy, heavy, riddled with flat spots and fished with all the feel of a stick of rhubarb. Not now. The Origin trout rods offer unsurpassed performance with lightness and balance that makes them a joy to use. A medium fast middle to tip action generates high line speeds for casting tight loops into the wind. Above all, these rods are designed as great fishing companions that make the act of casting, hooking and playing a fish sheer pleasure.

Superbly finished, these rods feature a beautiful nickle-silver reel seat with stabilised Amboyna wood spacer. Lightweight Fuji SiC oversize stripping guides, double chrome high-arch snake intermediates and a hayfork tip ring ensure minimum line friction. The Origin range breathes fresh air into the fly fishers' world and for the traveller is proving indispensable.

Hardy Gladstone Split Bamboo Rods

 


Hardy Gladstone Split Bamboo Fly Rods

Gladstone

Named in tribute to Callum Gladstone, Hardy's master-builder of split-bamboo fly rods, the first thing that you will notice about this new rod is its spectacular appearance. Prior to the building process, the finest Tonkin bamboo is hand-flamed, resulting in a rich, dark brown tortoiseshell finish.

This two-piece rod series is available in three sizes, each with its own individual taper that celebrates the achievements of some of the greatest American split-cane rod builders of the past: the Leonard family, Everett Garrison and Edward Payne. Minute adjustments are made to the Hardy precision planning form, to painstakingly recreate a modern version of these classic tapers. The perfect angle and taper on each spline means that the finished rod forms a perfect hexagon. Each rod shares in common the Œswelled butt¹ that contributes considerable backbone to the feel, allowing a deep action to be combined with excellent dampening characteristics.
