Risen ITB Fly Rod

Risen

Model

This rod is built to meet the demands of a wide range of anglers.  The moderate action allows you to take your time to load the rod to more accurately target rising fish.  This rod also fishes well in larger streams and rivers for bass, steelhead and salmon.  The action allows a good rod load but also helps protect lighter tippets.  It's a great rod with higher grade materials than many other rods in its price range with an eye catching design that will get you on the water throwing tight loops and placing your fly where you want it.

High module graphite blank in a bold burnt orange color and brown/orange wrappings

4 sections with the length and weight of rod marked on the end of each section to avoid confusion and alignment dots
