  1. G. Loomis IMX-Pro Creek Quick Take

    G. Loomis IMX-Pro Creek Quick Take
    As larger rivers continue to suffer from overcrowding, more anglers are seeking refuge by opting to explore smaller water. While the fish are generally eager to rise to a well-presented dry fly, creek fishing offers unique challenges. The standard 9ft 5wt trout rod is too long, bulky, and overpowering for most small stream situations. G. Loomis designed the IMX-Pro Creek specifically to meet the challenges creek anglers face.
  2. Winston Air 2 Fly Rod Review

    Winston Air 2 Fly Rod Review
    The Air 2 is being touted as the best all-purpose 5wt in the company's illustrious history and a challenger to the top trout rods on the market. Winston is known for making rods with a soulful touch that are perfectly tuned for technical dry fly fishing. However, due to their delicate nature, they often lack the backbone needed for dedicated nymphing and streamer fishing. If you are in the market for a new 5wt, read on to see if the Air 2 is the ultimate multi-purpose trout fishing tool.
  3. Sage Sonic Fly Rod Review

    Sage Sonic Fly Rod Review
    Mid-priced fly rods have almost become an afterthought in the fly fishing industry. Fly rod manufacturers prioritize promoting their premium flagship series or are eager to tap into the beginner market with affordable combos. Sage is looking to reverse this trend.
  4. Greys GR60 Fly Rod Review

    Greys GR60 Fly Rod Review
    'Value' and 'performance' are words generally not associated with fly fishing. Quite frankly, it can be hard to find quality, affordable equipment. Greys is a British-based fly rod manufacturer that has taken the initiative to change this perception. After being absent from U.S. markets for several years, the company is back in the States. This time around, Greys has brought some fantastic new products with them.
  5. Redington Trace Fly Rod Review

    Redington Trace Fly Rod Review

  6. Hardy Zane Pro Fly Rod Review

    Hardy Zane Pro Fly Rod Review
    Hardy is no stranger to producing great saltwater fly rods. The Zane Pro's predecessor, the Zephrus Salt, was especially well-received by the anglers who had the opportunity to fish them. Read on to see if the Zane Pro stands out in a crowded market filled with exceptional 8wts geared for the flats fanatics.
  7. Hardy Ultralite Fly Rod Review

    Hardy Ultralite Fly Rod Review
    The Ultralite replaces the Zephrus as Hardy’s high-end, freshwater rod series. Here at Trident, we were big fans of the Zephrus and its predecessor, the Zenith. Both series represented two of the finest all-purpose 5wts in the industry during their time. It is always difficult....
  8. Greys GR80 Streamflex Fly Rod Review

    Greys GR80 Streamflex Fly Rod Review
    2020 marks the return of Greys to the United States. For those of us who have been at this long enough, you'll remember when Greys left us some 6 (or so) years ago to become a European only brand. Like an Alfa Spider, Greys faded out of the mainstream and into the fond memory of enthusiasts. And now, they're back.
  9. Scott Centric Fly Rod Review

    Scott Centric Fly Rod Review
    The Radian replacement has (finally) arrived. After an 8-year run, Scott has decided to discontinue the Radian and replace it with the all-new Scott Centric. The Centric is designed to improve upon what the Radian set out to accomplish many years ago: bringing fast AND feel to the freshwater angler. While the Radian was pretty fast in the broader scheme of things, Scott has refined the action of the Radian and created the Centric: a rod with more feel, more castability, more versatility, and the industry-leading performance we've come to expect from Scott. If you're dying to hear if the hype is real, you've come to the right place. Read on for an in-depth fly rod review of Scott's brand new series.
  10. Winston Air Model-By-Model Fly Rod Review

    Winston Air Model-By-Model Fly Rod Review
    Winston designed these rods to be 'do-it-all' freshwater fly rods. In fact, they call them the 'Swiss Army Knife of fly rods'. To make such a versatile freshwater rod series, Winston rolled out a unique, progressive SuperSilica resin system that keeps these rods lightweight, powerful, and dynamic. That being said, Winston has also found a way to stay true to their brand by making these rods medium/medium-fast action and delicate when you need them to be. Read on for a model-by-model review of the whole series.
