The 11'7" rod is one of our earliest designs and they are still among our most popular rods.
The 5/6/7 wt.11'7" is one of our earliest designs, and has always been a great favorite with our anglers. She is a very diverse two-handed rod suitable for all short belly classic Spey lines, as well as all balanced Skagit/Scandi shooting head line systems.
She is an ideal rod for presenting over smaller rivers while pursuing Salmon, Steelhead, and large coastal and interior Trout … The perfect two-hander for Steelheading the small to medium sized rivers of the Great Lakes watersheds.
Although the rod is only 11'7" long and in the hand feels as light as most 6/7 wt. 10'0" single hand rods, she has a long and strong testimonial history of landing fish well into the mid-teens. She does also have a history of defeating lager fish such as Sam's Columbia drainage 2008 Summer Steelhead shown here.
The 11'7" is a very authoritive quick recovery rod, so is also ideal for two handed overhead beach work for coastal cruisers, light surf, big stillwaters and salt chuck estuarine.
