Progressive Taper: Fast Action/Fast Recovery
116 6/7 Spey rod is the lightest offering in our Original series. Dont let the length fool you, this is not a Switch rod (maybe an extension of) and our 116 has plenty of power down low and is one those rods in the industry that took many dedicated two-hand fisherman away from 140, 150 and 160 Spey rods. This rod is a terrific choice for a go anywhere summer Steelhead rod, Alaskan trout Spey for swinging streamers to large Rainbow and crosses over terrifically for chugging Wogs for hulky shouldered Silver Salmon. This rod is a progressive taper and fishes best with Scandinavian and Skagit type two-hand lines. A blast working runs from your first three foot/tip line dump to casting 80 of line with authority as you ease into the heart of the run.
Summer Steelhead, big Rainbows and Browns, Silver Salmon.
~Scandinavian: Beulah Elixir Spey 375,
Rio AFS 6/7
Beulah Tonic 425 Spey,
Airflo Compact Skagit 6/7,
Rio Skagit 350 or 400.
Note: if your tip of choice is 10 or more feet of Rio T14 and large tough to cast flies, bump up your line choice (say Tonic 450) to appropriately handle the big stuff!
