The High Sierra 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 High Sierra Series
Red Truck 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 original Diesel series nearly a decade ago and it hasn’t changed much since then. The reason? The rods simply work and work well. The High Sierra trout series has distinctive black hardware and offers two models with Western Half-wells grips. Red Truck fly rods have a 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 fly rods. Red Truck produces both the Diesel and High Sierra fly rod series in Korea to the highest standards. For you rod builders, both blanks are also available!
The graphite fly rod models in the Red Truck High Sierra 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 black with red trim and the rings are all stainless steel. All Red Truck graphite fly rods come with a powder-coated aluminum tube and black twill sock.
