  1. 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.
  2. Hardy Demon Smuggler Fly Rod Review

    Hardy Demon Smuggler Fly Rod Review
    Hardy has made a rod for the frequent traveler, a rod that fits in your back pocket. Well, almost. The new Demon Smuggler 6-piece fly rod from Hardy is made for carry-on luggage and extreme packability. Usually, a 6-piece fly rod means extra weight, less power, and decreased accuracy. This Demon Smuggler is quite the opposite, however. We are thoroughly impressed with the performance of the Demon Smuggler, especially in the 6-piece fly rod category. Read on to find out why.
  3. Hardy Demon Salt Fly Rod Review

    Hardy Demon Salt Fly Rod Review
    Hardy joins the Scott Tidal and the Sage Motive in the mid-priced saltwater fly rod market with their new Hardy Demon Salt. Today’s saltwater rod market is saturated with big names like Thomas & Thomas, Sage, and Scott. Hardy seems to fly a bit under the radar when it comes to well-known saltwater fly rod manufacturers, however, it seems they’re trying to put the Hardy name into the saltwater tide pool. Do they succeed? Read on to find out.
  4. Hardy Demon FWS Fly Rod Review

    Hardy Demon FWS Fly Rod Review
    Hardy seems to like the idea of fly fishing as a way to release your inner demons. We’ve seen several rods from Hardy marketed with the image of a demon including the Hardy Demon Smuggler and the Hardy Demon Salt. Well, they’re back at it again with a new mid-priced rod series that includes the Hardy Demon FWS (freshwater series). The Demon FWS replaces the Jet as Hardy’s well-rounded, do-it-all fly rod series. What demons will Hardy’s new FWS help you release? Read on to find out.
  5. Hardy Zephrus Ultralite Fly Rod Review

    Hardy Zephrus Ultralite Fly Rod Review
    Are you a minimalist? Me too… when it comes to a 4 wt anyway. Slimmed down, sleek, functional, ultra-responsive and ultra-light. That’s what I look for in a 4wt rod and that’s what Hardy has produced in the Zephrus Ultralite. I’m excited, to say the least. The Ultralite joins the Zephrus family and rounds out Hardy’s line of top-notch, multi-purpose, do-it-all fly rods built with Sintrix 440 technology. The Ultralite, therefore, is the best-of-the-best and stands in a 4wt class of its own. Read more to find out why.
