This is a good old classic & simple fly rod, but it’s packed with the best rod-crafting technology.
The Podsol Tajga 9' #5
The Podsol Tajga fly rod is light, sensitive and powerful. While designed for technicaldry flyfishing,it has all-round capabilities and handles nymphs andeven streamersequally well. The Podsol action is best described as moderate or medium-fast and the rod has a smooth feel with a quick, stable recovery.
The taper is mid-curve, mid-flex and the recommended line is a #5. There are many different line tapers out there in this class, but 9-12 grams long the first 30’ of fly line will generally load and perform best with the Podsol.
This is a good old classic & simple fly rod, but it’s packed with the best rod-crafting technology available today.
We’ve selected a special blend of longitudinal 40-ton and IM8 graphite fibers for the construction. This multi-fiber mix provides feel and recovery not found in single-fiber construction.
The Silica Nano Matrix high-absorption, low-mass resin layup allows us to reduce the amount of material by approximately one-third without sacrificing strength. This makes the Podsol fly rod sensitive and light.
Our ferrule construction is simple and strong. The three ferrules each follow the curve of the blank without any flat or dead spots. The unfinished male sections are ground to precis tolerance making the fit fail-proof. This fit also allows for easy section replacement in the event of an accidental breakage.
The result of all this technology is a durable yet lightweight fly rod which performs at the top of its class and is a pleasure to cast and fish.
