First Look: Walters Laurel Fork Fly Rod

A look at some cool new fly fishing gear coming soon

Walters Fly Rods introduces the Laurel Fork 3wt.

I totally dig small, independent fly fishing companies and I’ve been following along with Walters Fly Rods for a little while now. They’re basically in my back yard, and do a fine job of reppin’ the Southeast. They also produce some stellar gear.

They’ve announced their latest fly rod addition, which is the Laurel Fork 3wt.

The Laurel Fork 7.5′ 3 weight medium fast action fly rod was designed specifically around small water.  The Laurel Fork Fly Rod presents flies delicately for a natural presentation at long and short range.  The butt section of the rod has a deep backbone giving plenty of lifting power for fighting fish while still protecting light tippet.  The Laurel Fork fly rod is an excellent tool for your next small water adventure.
