    All Purpose Trout Fishing Outfit:

    Trout on your mind? Camping, campfires, casting dries, stream side lunches, cool mornings, and warm days... What’s not to love?


    The Diesel 9ft 5wt outfit is your all round trout solution, the one best answer for fishing for trout anywhere. From the emerald green waters of the McCloud River to the The Lower Yuba River, the Red Truck Balanced All Purpose Outfit is your do-it-all solution. In one day of trout fishing, an angler can use multiple fishing techniques. A day on the McCloud River can start with fishing dries during the morning hatch, an indicator nymph rig during the heat of the day, a hopper dropper rig as it cools off, and finally streamers for big browns at dusk. You could certainly carry a dry fly outfit, a nymph outfit, and a streamer outfit, or you can take one outfit designed to excel in all of these situations.


    The Red Truck Diesel “All Purpose Trout” Fly Rod: Our most versatile trout rod is our 9 foot 5 weight Diesel. This rod is your one answer for trout fishing anywhere. Built, designed, and balanced by avid trout fisherman for any situation.


    ·         A great rod starts with the grip. Red Truck's unique full wells grip is not only ergonomic but enhances the feel and efficiency of casting and fishing. Of course, we used top quality cork because life is too short to fish with crappy cork.


    ·         Matte finished rod black eliminates fish-spooking "rod glare," which occurs when sunlight reflects of a shiny rod's surface.


    ·         Sanded, precision-fit ferules (where the rod pieces come together) allow for repairs in just 3 days, eliminating the need for you to ship the entire rod back to us.


    ·         Effortlessly present dry flies on long leaders to rising trout.


    ·         Mend and roll cast nymph indicator rigs using the rod's powerful mid-section.


    ·         Hand made with incredible craftsmanship and premium components.


    The Red Truck Diesel Reel:The perfect match for the Red Truck All Purpose Trout fly rod is our Red Truck Diesel Fly Reel. Taking notes from the reels our grandfathers used, this reel is durable, simple, and elegant.


    ·         The click and pawl drag system provides the perfect amount of tension to protect light tippet and fight fish.


    ·         Machined from solid bar stock aluminum this reel will be appreciated for generations to come.


    ·         Whether you are pulling off line or hooked up on a fish this reel screams fly fishing.


    The Line:  This outfit comes balanced with a custom weight forward 5 weight fly line. This line enhances the feel and performance of your outfit not to mention fishing function.


    ·         No stretch design allows for efficient casting and hook sets.


    ·         Made out of Polyurethane which is incredibly durable and can with stand exposure to sunscreen, gas and diesel. All other fly lines are made from PVC which horrible for the environment.


    ·         Designed in a natural color to avoid spooking fish in clear water. 


    ·         Versatile taper that excels when fishing with dry flies, Indicator nymph rigs, streamer rigs, and hopper dropper rigs.



    When you put this all together you have an outfit that is incredibly easy to fish, mend, and cast. This outfit comes fully rigged, ready to fish, and includes an extra tip. If you are purchasing your first trout rod or looking to experience a truly balanced outfit the Red Truck All Purpose Outfit is the perfect solution.
