Lamson Purist fly rods are purpose built for technical trout fly fishing - accuracy and finesse when fly fishing long leaders and small flies for finicky trout. The 2 piece design and light, quality hardware focus on reducing weight in the upper section for enhanced feel, recovery and energy delivery when fishing delicate presentations. The action on these trout fly rods is all about balance. The supple tip loads easily at short ranges while the mid-section maintains stability and tracking for increased accuracy with feel. This all progresses to a more solid butt section that allows energy to be generated after the rest of the rod is loaded up to cast. The performance doesn't stop after the graphite. Lamson's Lockdown reel seat design keeps reels 100% seated always and never working loose after a day of casting.
