The Diesel 9ft 5wt graphite fly rod is your all round trout solution and the one best answer for fishing for trout anywhere. In one day of trout fishing an angler can use multiple techniques. A day can start with fishing dries during the morning hatch, an indicator nymph rig during the heat of the day, a hopper dropper rig as it cools off, and finally streamers for big browns at dusk. You could certainly carry a dry fly outfit, a nymph outfit, and streamer outfit or you can take one “All Purpose Trout” outfit designed to excel in all of these situations.
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.
