Deer Creek Rods for Bonefish

The TFO Deer Creek series of rods is getting good praise (and time on the water!) from Nervous Waters Fly Fishers in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Here is an excerpt from one of Clay’s posts on the 6/7-weight Deer Creek Spey rod:

“Long story short, the rod performed beautifully.  Very forgiving of shall we say less than perfect casts.  The rod loaded easily and I could feel it throughout the cast.  It launched long with very little effort. I casted it for five hours straight with absolutely no fatigue. The only thing that wore me out was fighting a bunch of fish, (as it should always be when using any fly rod).  I didn’t hook anything big but the rod handled the rats i got into very well.  It felt like it still had some reserve power for when the big boy bites, yet it was light enough that every fish I caught put some serious bend in the rod. The Deer Creek was just a pleasure to cast and fight fish with. absolute super fun which, after all, is the point of all of this fly fishing stuff.” 

Clay at Nervous Waters has been doing some creative write-ups on chasing bonefish with long rods. For the complete posts, check out http://goo.gl/d0kKA
