Tycoon Tackle has linked up with Hall of Famer, Stu Apte, to design a signature series of fly rods.
Designed for ‘superb’ performance, Tycoon Tackle says that craftsmanship of the Stu Apte Signature Series of Fly Rods begins with the blank. It was designed according to Apte’s specifications and hand-made by the Waynesboro, Virginia company’s world-renowned fishing rod blank maker.
Each is painted in ‘Pacific Blue’, has an ultra-violet ray protected finish to prevent discolouring and made to order using only the finest components, including snake-style guides.
The 4wt and 5wt rods feature a Reverse Half-Wels grip, nickel-silver up-locking reel seat with a Rosewood burl wood insert, hook keeper and two stripping guides.
The 6wt to 13wt models are fitted with Full-Wells grip, black anodised up-locking reel seat, hook keeper and fighting butt. They also feature three slightly oversized stripping guides to tame the line when shooting distances.
“All these factors result in a fishing rod that is crafted in an ‘old school’ manner and is combined with state-of-the-art technology, giving the angler superior line feel and smoothness compared to other graphite rods,” says Tycoon.
Apte adds: “This new generation of my Signature Series Fly Rods will improve your casting speed and accuracy, making fly fishing the most enjoyable way to catch all types of fish anywhere in the world.”
Tim O’Brien, President of Tycoon Tackle, says: “Stu’s knowledge of, and his experience in, fly fishing has proven to be invaluable in the process of designing, testing and bringing to market this unique series of fishing rods. Everyone at the company is proud to work with Stu as we continue to grow our fly fishing portfolio.”
