Guiding year round for muskie and tackle busting stripers in the mountains of Virginia equates to a hard life for fly rods and Mystic is up to the challenge! The Mystic Reaper fly rod is a do-it-all rod for anglers looking for something at a mid-level price point. Mystic designed the Reaper fly rod to deliver immense power through the bottom two-thirds of the rod, while maintaining enough delicacy in the tip to protect lighter tippet. Quality flyrods at a fair price, with customer service and support that is almost unheard of in the industry, couple that with a rock solid warranty and you have a winning combination that excels afield.

I’ve been fishing Mystic fly rods for 3 years and I can’t say enough great things about them. From the cork to the tip they excel everywhere over any other fly rods I have personally fished. The Mystic M-Series single hander has incredible power and tracks beautifully. Where the 8wt Mystic M Switch is a power-horse with the ability to launch a chicken on the sinktip, toss an indi with ease, and not blow a rotator cuff in the process.
I fished the new 8wt Mystic spey rod this past weekend on some of the big water MI has to offer. This stick is a cannon! I found that the rod is fast yet allows me time to feel the line load and deliver a 520 grain head well beyond my other 8wt requiring a 575 grain. The spey has many characteristics of their switch, another favorite rod of mine, with superb cork, finish, and hardware. f you like a spey that doesn’t feel like a telephone pole yet has the ability to reach the edges of your casting distance, I strongly suggest spending some time casting this rod.
