This is a big-water, big fish drift rod. It’s a great choice for winter steelhead, silvers, chums and small chinooks on larger rivers where you need more length to cover the water. You’ll be able to extend your casting range as well as the length of your drifts and it provides positive line and fish-fighting control no matter how far downstream the fish is. It’s a great advantage for the bank angler because you can cover so much water. It will also help you avoid tangles with neighboring anglers, both during the drift as well as the retrieve. It has the sensitivity to telegraph even the most subtle bite.
