Lamson Velocity fly rods take the high-performance, high-energy blanks from their Cobalt series and implement them into freshwater versions where power is needed. Big trout rivers, articulated streamers, bass fly fishing and steelhead amongst many other things are where the Lamson Velocity fly rods shine in freshwater. These fly rods feature a fast action design that can generate enough line speed and power to push heavy lines and flies, fight wind on larger rivers and just provide enough everything when it's needed. Not the one you want for dropping delicate dries, but the one you'll love for everything else.
