Fly Fishing - Falcon Graphite Rods Enters Fly Rod Market
Fly Fishing - BROKEN ARROW, Okla.– Falcon Graphite Rods, known for its broad array of made-in-America spinning and casting rods, has entered the competitive fly rod market with a line of first quality fly rods – Falcon Cara Fly Series – also designed and manufactured in the U.S.A.
The new rods, encompassing weights from 4 to 10, are designed for saltwater as well as freshwater fly fishing, including rods in the lighter trout and bluegill categories. Corrosion-resistant components include anodized, brushed-aluminum reel seats and silicone-carbide stripping guides.
Though of superior quality and also made in America where costs are higher, the Falcon Cara Fly Series will be priced in the store comparably to imported fly rods. “Now fly fishers, like Falcon spinning and casting anglers, will have their cake and eat it, too, the best graphite fly rod that money can buy but with money left over.” said Chris Beckwith, Falcon’s vice president of marketing.
The Falcon Cara Fly Series includes eight rods designed for smoother line loading on back casts and efficient transfer of power to the shooting line on the forward cast. Falcon designers paid particular attention to eliminating fly rod tip resonance, a type of vibration common to other brands that generates line friction against the tip top guide which hurts distance and accuracy.
The light-class fly rods from four to six weight feature deeper parabolic flexing to promote accuracy and to protect light tippets. The heavier-class rods, Falcon’s nine and ten weights, flex between the mid-point and the tip for extra distance in the wind and for reserve power to manage hard fighting fish like peacock bass, Atlantic and king salmon, cobia, snook, redfish, and even tarpon.
Like their counterparts in the spinning and casting rods, Falcon’s fly rods are made in America to maintain quality. Rods are inspected and flex tested twice before shipment. And each is designed with a particular kind of fishing in mind. Some examples:
CF-5-296 is a long 9-foot, 6- inch rod designed for nymph fly fishing for trout. The rod’s extra length gives anglers more line mending capability.
The 8-foot Cara Fly 4 and Cary Fly 5 are designed for stream fishing and fly fishing in areas where backcasts are limited by brush, trees or banks.
The 9-foot Cara Fly 6 has been called the “perfect fly rod for small bonefish” because it’s light enough to enjoy the battle but with the length and strength necessary to make long casts to spooky fish in open water.
The Falcon Cara Fly 9 and 10 weight fly fishing rods deliver casting speeds required to cast big streamers into the wind and with reserve rod power to take control of powerful fish after the hook-up.
Each Cara Fly rod comes with a custom-lined, Cordura-covered PVC rod tube, also made in the U.S.
