Will Fly Fishing Competitions Lead to Longer Rods?
Noting the decision by Hardy and Greys to introduce a higher-modulus 10-foot 4-weight, Keith Barton over on Single-Barbed suggested a possible path for U.S. rodmakers: follow the European lead and begin making more long rods. “As our lads return home it’s likely one of our US vendors will start filling the breach and introduce the 10? and 11? light line rods currently dominating the European circuit and Fips-Mouche.”
