Redington Vapen Red Fly Rod Reviews
Overall Positive, Fun Rod Review by Todd
I've been using the Vapen Red since it was first released for predominately fishing the Snake River in Jackson WY, the occasional tributary trip, and even on a few small pike in Northern Michigan. I even pulled out a 20 inch Cutthroat on Flatcreek using a 10" leader and size 18 fly.
The has been an excellent all-around rod, but in my experience isn't exactly great at everything. For me it's been an excellent fit using the 5-weight for almost every situation I come into, it was even fun chasing little brookie's in Utah's Cottonwood Canyons. If you're looking for a specialized rod for soft presentations, chucking streamers, or ripping roll-casts with double nymphs and weight, I would look at rods designed specifically for those functions, but if you're looking for a powerful, all around rod that IS comfortable to hold, check out the Vapen!
