JP Ross Fly Rods To Release The MUIR

On the heels of the Beaver Meadow Glass Series late last year, JP Ross Fly Rods is soon set to release the seven foot three weight five piece MUIR at the end of the month.

The MUIR is described as a "true medium action" and may be the perfect stowaway fly rod in the backpack for those trips to blue lines and backcountry streams.

From the JP Ross Fly Rods website...   

"We found there was a need for a special fly rod in the market. The rod would carry the excitement of the new age fiberglass fly rods, but would also be technically advanced and have a purpose.

Glass is not nearly as advanced as carbon fiber, and also is not as diverse. However, glass does have its place in some specialized applications. One specific application is smaller stream fly fishing. No matter for Bass, Trout, or even Panfish, we feel that the action of fiberglass is perfect for these applications. There is, or was until now, a void in the offering the market yields in regards to pack-able high performance glass. So we decided to fill that niche with the MUIR.

The MUIR is a 7 foot medium action 3 weight, 7 foot glass fly rod. This first release is one of many that you will see from JP Ross in 2016. 

Named after John Muir, this rod is made for backpacking for wild fish. The famous writer and advocate for the United States National Parks in the late 1800's and early 1900's, Mr. Muir traveled by foot no matter where he went. He believed, and we agree, that a transcendent experience happens in the wilderness. Only by being in the woods and seeing the world from the mountain tops, can one really understand God, Nature, Themselves, and actually recharge."

The MUIR will be available three ways as a blank, Standard Grade, and then an all out Limited Edition Signature Grade model as well.
