This new Drift range of Wychwood fly rods has been designed specifically with the modern river angler in mind. Produced using super-fine grades of carbon, these lightweight and slim line fly rods are perfect for modern nymph fishing techniques.
With the new fly lines and lighter tapers that we now have at our disposal, we can get so much closer to our quarry and when fishing at such close range, rods with softer, middle to tip actions, as featured on the Drift range, are far more effective. Drift rods will allow you to hook and hold fish at short and medium range with very thin tippets, small nymphs and dry flies, without fear of the hook pulling out. You can also take your time and let the rod take the strain when playing big fish in fast water, the soft action will ensure every lunge is cushioned effectively.
