Designed with a focus on affordability and performance, Douglas’ ERA Fly Rod is a great choice whether you’re just starting out or need a backup that won’t break the bank. The ERA Rods are lightweight and feature a fast-action that delivers reliable accuracy with enough power to turn large fish and handle anything from a chunky streamer to a small caddis pattern. Built with solid componentry in line weights 5 and 8, the ERA gives you an option whether you’re after rising trout or skittish carp pushing the 20-pound mark. Value-driven and backed by excellent performance, it’s hard to go wrong with the ERA. 


Graphite - Douglas’ ERA is built with a graphite blank. This blank has a fast action that gives a very smooth cast, especially for its pricepoint budget. And while this rod makes for consistently smooth casting, its lightweight construction and low swing weight also ensure that long days are anything but tough. 

The ERA series has a clean grey-colored graphite with contrasting white thread wraps. Not only does this color look clean when you’re casting it, but it gives a color scheme that breaks away from other more budget-friendly options. 


Reel Seat

Dual Uplocking Reel Seat - Strong enough to handle the occasional drop and lightweight enough to throw all day, the ERA’s metal reel seat is a reliable addition to this series of rods.  

Rod Tube

The ERA Rods come in a tough Cordura rod tube with an integrated rod sleeve. Sturdy and long-lasting, you can count on this tube to keep your rod safe whether it’s strapped onto your backpack or banging around the backseat of your vehicle while en route to the stream.


As of July 2022, Douglas covers their ERA series of rods under their lifetime warranty. This warranty lasts for the lifetime of the original rod owner and offers a no-fault full replacement for the cost of $35 per damaged section.
