  1. 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.

  3. 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....

    Sage Response 9' 5-weight Review
    The Sage Response fly rod, new for 2013, replaces the Sage Flight as Sage's "entry-level", fast action rod. The Flight, and the FLi before it, was one of Sage's best selling rods and I was eager to cast it.

  7. R.L. Winston Boron IIIx 9' 5-Weight Review

    R.L. Winston Boron IIIx 9' 5-Weight Review
    The Winston Boron IIIx follows in the footsteps of it's predecessor, the BIIX. Both are light, medium/fast-action rods that not only set the standard for construction and finish, but also cast as good as they look. When Winston started designing the new B3x they intended it to be faster and more powerful than the BIIX. They succeeded.   Here's the outfit...
  8. Sage ONE 9' 5-weight Review

    Sage ONE 9' 5-weight Review
    The Sage ONE is the other 5-weight that everyone was talking about in 2012. It’s Sage’s signature rod, and when Jerry Siem (Sage’s rod designer) designs a fly rod like this – he does it right. It’s all Sage. Fast. Light. Accurate. The feel was a solid upgrade from the Z-axis as well. Keep reading to for the details.
