Hip-Hip Hooray!!! Tim Rajeff from Echo brought back the big sticks in fiberglass, 9-footers in 8,9,10 and 12 weights. Beautiful construction in 4pc with all the right stuff in an elegant sea blue color made in fast S glass material. One special feature I really noticed and appreciated was the special markings on the reel seat to quickly place the reel where it goes! So, last year I added the 10 wt to my arsenal and put to the test for tarpon in Puerto Rico. My biggest poon was 75 lbs and I had no problems to put the big fish down in good time. Most of all, it was a sensational feel to have that rod bent the way glass is meant to bend! When I first showed the guide this rod, he asked, "Glass?" After I nodded my head he said, "Fiberglass is old school, man!" Well, it wasn't old school after I demonstrated my casting and landed a nice tarpon on it. BAZINGA!
I've also used this rod for tiger muskies in Western WA throwing flies up to 10" long and also loved the pull on some nice muskies up to 36" long. Can't wait to battle the monsta one of these days.
If you want to go big with a modern glass fly rod like the BAGs you won't be disappointed. If you need help with sizing up the right fly line just ask the folks at Rajeff Sports and they'll set you up!
