The High Sierra 690-4 is a fast action graphite fly rod.  This blank on which this fly rod is built has gained the reputation as one of the best six weights around.  We think you’ll agree.  Customers from from the West Coast of Sweden and the shores of the Southern Baltic say it’s a super coast rod.  It was designed as a steamer rod and it has proven its versatility from trout rivers in Iceland to the bonefish flats of the Caribcean. Any trout earned with a fly rod is worth noting. However, if you hunger for the largest trout in your waters, you’ll need to adjust your approach. You see, when a trout gets big enough, it changes its diet plan. The largest trout often eat meat in the form of smaller fish and crayfish. Try casting a proper streamer pattern with your everyday fly rod…it won’t work efficiently. You need to up your game…as well as your gear.


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.
