Red Truck Diesel Fly Rods represent a fusion of the casting & fishing capabilities of the original California Leland Fly Fishing crew combined with the engineering and production mastery of the world’s leading technical fly rod manufacturing facility. The series concept was developed nearly a decade ago and hasn’t changed much since then. The reason? The rods simply work and work well. From the stylish size-adapted grips down to the unground snake-belly finish, these fly rods have a distinct, classic look that just doesn’t go out of style. They are super-light, ultra-responsive and they cast and fish like a dream.
The Leland crew sold loads and loads of fly rods from all the major brands for many years. They fished them all and knew exactly what worked best. Over time they became increasingly disillusioned with being “caught” in the sales treadmill whereby every brand had at least one new rod series for every season – all of which had to be “moved” before the next series appeared. They finally gave up on trying to keep abreast of the short, untenable product cycles the major brands were forking out and the Leland owners created the Red Truck Flyfishing Company. The vision was to offer a series of functional fly rod tapers that everyone could fish with and that would last. The Red Truck Diesel fly rod became not only a brand to sell, but also a super tool with which to teach and to introduce people to the sport.
Years later, Red Truck Fly Fishing is still going strong. The Red Truck brand is a refreshing and sensible alternative to just about everything else out there.
We are proud to offer these great products in Scandinavia and Europe. Red Truck Diesel Fly Rods deliver incredible function and real value.
