Fishing with a fiberglass fly rod is like having a time machine in your hand. Due to its physical nature, fiberglass responds differently than graphite when cast. Although graphite has its proven benefits, fiberglass has a magical uniqueness to it. With its slower casting tempo and plush feel, the right fiberglass fly rod adds a level of enjoyment to any day spent on the water.
The Diesel Series
Red Truck Diesel Fly Rods embody the casting & fishing capabilities of the original California Leland Fly Fishing crew. They combined their experience with the engineering and production mastery of the world’s leading technical fly rod manufacturing facility. The crew designed the Diesel series nearly a decade ago and it hasn’t changed much since then. The reason? The rods simply work and work well. Diesel fly rods have a distinct, classic look that just doesn’t go out of style.
RFT Gear is the only retail outlet in all of Europe offering factory-finished, high-performance Red Truck Diesel fly rods. Red Truck produces the Diesel rods in Korea to the highest standards.
The Red Truck Diesel series features two lovely little S-Glass trout rods for line class #4 and class #5. They built both on beautiful translucent yellow-gold blanks bound in Red Truck’s signature burgundy red windings. The fit and finish down to the Western sock, yellow aluminum tube and sock are all top shelf. For you rod builders, both blanks are also available!
The graphite fly rod models in the Diesel series are light, quick and responsive. The graphite blend is a 30/40 ton mix with a natural grey semi-ground, snake-belly finish. All feature ground ferrules. The windings are burgundy with silver trim and the rings are all stainless steel. All Red Truck graphite fly rods come with a black, powder-coated aluminum tube and black twill sock.
