Near the Mystic Outdoors headquarters in Colorado, we’ve had our fair share of snow this winter. We appreciate the moisture, but we are already looking forward to spring weather!
What fly fishing adventures are on your radar for 2019? We’re thinking about ice-off on our favorite still water lakes and reservoirs and dry fly hatches on freestone rivers. Before we know it, the thaw will be underway.
While making your spring fishing plans, here are two fly rod recommendations to keep in mind:
1. A Fly Rod for Lakes in Spring Conditions
“The virtues of a long fly rod such as the 10’ 3” Mystic M-Series soon becomes apparent when hanging flies on still waters,” commented still water specialist Phil Rowley, of Fly Craft Angling.
As you look forward to ice-off on your favorite lakes this spring, look closely at the Mystic M-Series 10’ 3” 8-weight fly rod. This rod is a still water angler’s dream. The extra length of the M-Series is perfect for still water fishing techniques and also a favorite among euro and traditional nymphing fanatics. The 8-weight can drive through wind in even the harshest spring lake fishing conditions.
The M-Series is our flagship rod series, designed by Dennis Klein and our U.S. team. These handcrafted rods employ a proprietary graphite and resin system that loads into the mid-section of the blank and boasts an incredibly quick recovery. For the angler, that means a rod with touch and deep loading power to deliver flies with laser-like accuracy.
2. A Rod for Spring Fishing on Freestone Rivers
As you begin to think about dry fly hatches and dry-dropper combinations on your local freestone rivers, consider the Mystic ReaperX in the 3, 4 and 5-weight options.
When our design team set out to create the ReaperX, we wanted to prove that a top tier fly rod from an American company didn’t have to cost a fortune. With a direct-to-consumer approach, we were able to avoid the typical retail price points and create a fly rod that compares with others costing twice as much.
The ReaperX 7’ 3-weight is your small water, dry fly specialist. For a bit more versatility, you might consider the 8’ 6” 4-weight ReaperX. If you find yourself casting dry flies on bigger water, or dry-dropper rigs, the extra length of the 9’ 4-weight might be your ticket. For the most versatility casting both dries and nymphs, and if battling windy spring conditions, you cant’ beat the 9’ 5-weight ReaperX.
