This rod is great for fishing from a drift boat or casting on bigger rivers where wind and distance come into play. The 8'6" 6wt is a rod that we fish the Missouri, Madison, Yellowstone, etc with when we're floating. The 866 casts hoppers, nymphs and small streamers easily yet has a sensitive enough tip for casting small dry flies. Compared to the 906, this rod would be a little more suited for dry flies with the tighter loop made when casting shorter rods. This rod is done on a red blank with uplocking hardware, a full wells grip and a beautiful koa reel seat insert. Serial Number 20-6-12
Price includes premium TMR red graphite rod tube as well as shipping/insurance. If you would like to upgrade to an Al Swanson wood tube or heirloom tube, please inquire about cost and timing.
