    New Zealand Trout Fly Rod:

    There's no denying the truth, the world's best selling graphite fly rod is a nine foot, five weight fly rod. Why? Because it can do just about anything…cast a dry fly, drift a nymph or deliver a larger streamer. It's your all-around trout fly rod…period!

    Any nine foot, five weight fly rod can catch a trout, but not every nine foot, five weight is a joy to cast. That's where our Leland Rod Company New Zealand Trout fly rod comes into play. It's simply the best-balanced, most-efficient fly rod you'll ever cast. Whether it's a 30 foot, dry fly layup or a big bug lob to the far bank, this fly rod can do it…and do it well.

    Contrary to what you've been told, materials alone (special graphites) don't guarantee a fine rod. It's the whole enchilada that makes it worthy. Materials, blank taper, wall thickness and even properly-chosen components make the whole greater than the sum of parts.

    That's exactly how we designed our Leland Rod Company New Zealand Trout rod. We slowed down, reviewed options and overall goals and designed a fly rod from the ground up that not only casts better than any fly rod you've ever tried, but looks better on the rod rack, too.

    The finest cork, cocobolo wood and darkened nickel silver compliment the build, creating a fly rod that even your stingy Grandfather would lust for. So, if you're on the hunt for the best (and prettiest) all-around trout fly rod, you just found it.

    One Rod

    My last “all purpose trout rod,” in fact hardly served my purpose. So this time I was extra cautious in investing in an all purpose fishing solution. A fellow angler recommended Leland. A visit to the Leland store and I could not resist myself from buying one. After using it I was stoked, as it truly is what it claims to be. A perfect all purpose solution for hunting trout anywhere and everywhere. I cannot explain how relieved I’m to have this one rod quiver; Leland really helped me get what I needed.


    Great Rods

    Leland New Zealand Series Fly Rods are one the best fly rods out there.


    Love this stick.

    Casts like a dream. I can shoot line on this rod without a haul or double haul. I have never done that before. Awesome feel, fishing drys and nymphs. Certainly spendy, but worth every penny. I'm a decent caster, but this makes casting easier.


    One Rod to Do it All

    I’m passionate about Trout fishing in the Hot Creek and the North Fork of Yuba. All I wanted was a balanced outfit. The Leland Trout Fly Rod was a gift I got on my birthday. And it is a gift I will cherish for my life time. Unlike other outfits which claim to be all in one, yet fail to deliver, this one is a REAL all-purpose outfit. Due to its outstanding features, this outfit has made my fishing experience pleasant. It’s one of the best outfits I have ever come across.
