Podsol – Tajga Fly Rod 9´#5
While designed for technical dry fly fishing, it has all-round capabilities and handles nymphs and even streamers equally well. The Podsol action is best described as moderate or medium-fast and the rod has a smooth feel with a quick, stable recovery.
The taper is mid-curve, mid-flex and the recommended line is a #5. There are many different line tapers out there in this class, but 9-12 grams long the first 30´of the fly line will generally load and perform best with the Podsol.
This is a good old classic & simple fly rod, but it’s packed with the best rod-crafting technology avalible today. We’ve selected a special blend of longitudinal 40-ton and IM8 graphite fibers for the construction. This multi-fiber mix provides feel and recovery not found in single-fiber constructions.
The Silica Nano Matrix high-absorption, low-mass resin layup allows us to reduce the amount of material by approximately one-third without sacrificing strength. This makes the Podsol ”Tajga” fly rod sensitive and light.
Our ferrule construction is simple and strong. The threee ferrules each follow the curve of the blank without any flat or dead spots. The unfinished male selections are ground to precis tolerance making the fit fail-proof. This fit also allows for easy section replacement in the event of an accidental breakage. The result of all this technology is a durable yet lightweight fly rod which performs at the top of its class and is a pleasure to cast and fish.
