Why are the best looking seams always just out of reach? When it comes to distance, there is nothing better than a Red Truck 5110-4 Switch Fly Rod. The 11 feet of reach gives an angler the length to be completely stealthy when high-sticking, or the ability to roll cast or overhead cast to the opposite bank. Leave no boulder uncovered. With the Red Truck 5110-4 Switch Fly Rod, you now have a whole new way to fish large tailwater trout rivers or small to medium size steelhead waters. Match this rod to a RIO Skagit Short Head for fantastic swinging capabilities, or a longer belly single-hand line line like the 5 weight Steelhead and Salmon for the ultimate in dead-drift presentations. Light, versatile and fun to cast, the Red Truck 5110-4 Switch Fly Rod allows you to take control in every situation. The leaves are turning color and those Fall-run Steelhead are headed up river, so no time to lose.
This is one of the best rods I have laid my hands on. Crafted with due diligence, the rod, has all it takes to catch trophy trout. Excellent length is perhaps its biggest plus point. It is 11 feet long, and gives the freedom to cast and control at a greater distance. At the same time in spite of its length it is easy on the arm and helped me catch good number of trout both on large as well as medium size rivers. Usually though many long rods claim to be designed for trout fishing they only help in making the whole fishing experience a pain. But this is not so in the case of this Red Truck Diesel product because they added the counter weights. Also the ease with which I could swing flies was excellent. At last I got a rod crafted by for anglers, by a group of serious anglers. I also wanted to mention that the Leland staff, who introduced me to this equipment, is excellent. They have good knowledge of fishing and know how to meet fishermen's requirements.
I never give five stars. . .

Well yet again Leland has stocked some very good fishing gear. And this time its Red Trucks summer switch nymph fly fishing rod. The rod is one of the best on the market. Apart from an excellent length at 11 feet, and powerful blank it is good in all water, yet it was never heavy on hand with the counter weights. The reel is a classic edition and sends an outgoing click, whenever I catch a fish. I am quite satisfied with the whole experience that this fly rod gives me, and will recommend it to whoever wants to catch allot of fish with a good switch rod for trout/steelhead with an overhead or spey cast.
