Sierra Nevada Fiberglass Fly Rods

For the past several years Leland Fly Fishing Outfitters have been working on a couple fiberglass projects.  First there was the Red Truck Fly Fishing offering and now Leland has released the Sierra Nevada Fiberglass Fly Rod which is a six piece 7'6" four weight that was designed with the purpose of trips into the backcountry in mind.

The Sierra Nevada fly rod has the following features...
  • Line Size: 4
  • Length: 7 feet, 6 inches
  • Sections: 6
  • Blank color: Golden
  • Reel Seat: Darkened nickle silver slide band
  • Spacer: Cocobolo, cork spacer
  • Guides: Blued chrome light steel wire
  • Handle: Proprietary Leland Grip
  • Action: Adaptive, Fast
  • Price:  $495.00

These fly rod is has a lot of cosmetic extras with the agate stripper guide, ferrule plugs, premium rod tube, and other features and I am interested to find out what "Adaptive/Fast" means as far as the action.

I am hoping to review one of these fly rods soon and may be able to add it to the T.F.M. Fly Rod Loan Program as well.

Check out the Leland Fly Fishing Outfitters website for more information.
