NIRVANA SuperGLASS Rod By MoonLit Fly Fishing
During the 2018 NW Tyer and Fly Fishing Expo in Albany, OR, I met a two fly enthusiasts from a small fly fishing company in Chubbuck, ID, called MoonLit Fly Fishing (cool name). A relatively new business with innovative fly fishing and tying products. One of which is the NIRVANA Super GLASS fly rod in a gorgeous seafoam green color, the first thing that caught my eye. Made of the new S-glass material, for a lighter touch and slightly faster action. Currently they have two models, the 7-ft, 3wt. (2.8 oz), 4 pc. and the 8-ft 3-in, 6 wt. (3.9 oz), 4pc. On the pond they were so sweet and easy to cast and I was sold! But which one? The 6wt won out because I'm a streamer fanatic and this rod has the backbone for it. Needless to say when I had my first outing with it catching ice-out, feisty rainbows, it was a blast. I let a friend try it out and after he caught a trout with it, I thought I would never get the rod back! Needless to say, this one will stay in my collection for ever.
These rods are made of quality components in a beautiful design and include rod bag and fiberglass case at $349.99. Check out the details on their website and contact Brandon Moon at MoonLit Fly Fishing, www.moonlitflyfishing.com
