The Story

8-foot, 3-piece bamboo rod for 5-weight line. The 1856 is made to be fished. When modern design philosophy meets a classic material, something incredible is bound to happen. This 8' 5-weight rod was inspired by larger Western rivers, and is at home on waters from the Delaware River to Silver Creek. Hollow build means both light weight and quick rebound with less vibration and bounce, while a downlocking nickel silver reel seat with Vermont maple burl insert and a 6.5" full wells cork grip mean performance designed to do more than just rest on the mantel. A progressive flex means you can under-line for a faster feel, or over-line for a slower cast. This gives you an opportunity to play with preferred loading for various situations.
