The Jeff Blood Premium Fly Rod series is perfect for Great Lakes Steelhead fishing. Balancing flawlessly in your hand, it is readily apparent that this is a well-crafted medium/fast action steelhead fly rod. The high-grade 40-ton carbon fiber blank features a proprietary rod taper and action with an aircraft-grade aluminum rear seat and locking rings (2) with a nylon gasket to secure your reel in place. Porcelain polished stripping guides reduce friction, and extra deep ferrules better disseminate force. These premium steelhead fly rods are exceptional across the entire spectrum of delivering the fly, fishing to the fish, and finally hooking, fighting, and landing it! Great casting performance and tremendous line control are distinctive aspects of this steelhead fly rod, and its extraordinary fighting tenacity protects light tippets on big fish. Although refined specifically for Great Lakes Steelhead in the five to 15-pound range, the rods will tackle any saltwater fish where the rod weight is appropriate. Great Lakes Steelhead fishing is world-class fishing, so go prepared to test your skills with a Jeff Blood Premium Fly Rod!
