Founded in 1872, Hardy is one of the longest operating companies in the fishing world. Long known for their innovation in the fly reel space (they made the first Perfect in 1891), Hardy has also been making some of the greatest fly rods in the world. While only the elite Hardy Bros. models are still made in England, each and every rod bearing the Hardy logo is indeed a Hardy.
In 2011, Hardy reinvented itself to become a leading manufacturer of fly rods as well. Using the knowledge gained from Hardy Advanced Composites and a revolutionary new 3M resin, they created Sintrix. Hardy Sintrix fly rods combine impeccable accuracy with a revolutionary new fast action.
Buying a Hardy fly rod is not only buying a part of history - it's buying one of the world's best performing fly rods. The Hardy fly rod lineup is lead by the Hardy Zenith, which has won every award in the fly fishing universe, and one of our favorite trout rods. It's accurate. It's buttery smooth. And it lays down line for miles.
Hardy fly rods are not just great in freshwater. The new Hardy Proaxis rod has redefined saltwater performance.
