Wychwood Drift XL Fly Rod
This new Drift XL range of Wychwood extendable fly rods has been designed specifically with the modern river angler in mind, for those that want that little extra edge!
A highly innovative range of rods these models feature a unique extendable butt section which allows, should you need it, up to 8-inches of extension, instantly transforming the rod to suit the situation that you find yourself fishing in.
The twist and lock feature means that the rod, at its shortest length, can be used for presenting dry flies at range, and at its longest length, for close quarters nymph fishing.
Produced using super-fine grades of carbon, these lightweight and slimline fly rods feature an action that suits all styles of river fishing.
Drift XL rods will allow you to hook and hold fish at short and medium range with very thin tippets, small dry flies and or nymphs, without fear of the hook pulling out. You can also take your time and let the rod take the strain when playing big fish in fast water, the softer action will ensure every lunge is cushioned effectively.
These tactical fly rods feature an understated matt black finish, with black, lacquered whippings and olive highlights. The new P cork handle, features a camo look to ensure that it is discreet, not as bold and bright as the usual cork, in any challenging fishing situations.
The rods also feature a unique 20cm marker whipped the blank above the handle, in most competitions, only fish of 20cm or more are counted.
With high-end cosmetics, Pac Bay guides throughout, anodised satin finish reel seat, and understated graphics these rods look as good as they perform!
