Our USA Made Waterman Fly Rods will please the most discriminating angler.
Fast action rods, that still have plenty of responsiveness and liveliness. No stiff, dead rod here.
Fast rod tip recovery, allowing for straight line paths and more distance and accuracy when shooting line. Quickly loads with ease for short distance sight casting, while still having enough power to launch a fly into the next county.
Waterman rods are built to withstand the harshest saltwater environments, while still being equally at home in freshwater.
"Effortless" is the word that comes to mind when someone picks up and casts the Waterman for the first time. Each rod is painstakingly built to the highest standards in performance and attention to detail. We use nothing but the highest quality and best performing components available.
Rolled in the USA using some of the lightest and most sensitive graphite materials available.
