You arrive at the run just as the sun is making its first appearance. Waders are put on and rods are rigged. You pass around the flask ceremoniously before you step into the water. Your first cast feels good and the second even better. The flow of the spey cast and the beauty of your surroundings inspire you to yell to your buddies “What a great day to be alive boys!”

    Nice action 10/11/2013 8:52 am I really liked the action of the 13:6" two handed spey rod. Snap Ts and Snake Rolls were fun, and shooting line is a joy.
    Diesel 7136-4 10/11/2013 8:42 am I got to meet the team and Red Truck and cast all the rods. This was my favorite. It was easy to cast and I love the feel and texture of the blank too. Beautiful rods.

    Red Truck Fly Rods 8/5/2013 5:07 pm Although, the market seems to be flooded with multiple brands offering fishing equipments. I can proudly state my loyalty to the Red Truck brand. Red truck fishing equipments offer the best quality at the best prices. All the Red Truck products I have bought so far from Leland Fly shop have been perfectly wonderful and have offered maximum utility. I have used this Red Truck Diesel Spey Rod in the high water as well as the the lowest clearest waters in California. I have had a blast of time using this fly rod and I am looking forward to using more such products from Red Truck.
    Steelhead Nut 7/17/2013 11:20 am Red Truck fly fishing has always been a craze amongst avid fishermen like me. I have always been curious about the latest fishing equipments launched by this brand. I personally felt that the Red Truck Diesel spey has been crafted keeping in mind the most important parts of the steelhead fly rod. They have taken care of the grip, the cork, the case, the action and given it a raw, stainless, timeless look as well. The length and weight of this fishing rod is perfect for a one rod quiver. Those of you wanting to explore greater rivers while fishing must use this new Red Truck spey. As a regular shopper on Red Truck fly fishing, I strongly feel that their products have been constantly updated for an overall fishing experience. They are steelhead nuts and so am I. Catch one for me!
    Great Rod 7/9/2013 9:09 am Lots of rods to consider theses days. I've owned many two handers for special rivers I fish. I wanted a rod that could do it all from Scandi to Skagit, summer to winter. I'd never heard of Red Truck until my buddy told me. I checked out the site, called the guys and got more infomation. I ended up ordering the whole kit with lines, reel and all. It's really good stuff. Been fishing it now for two seasons and I canot complain. The reel sure sounds great when I hook up. If you want a great all-around two-hand kit for steelhead, this is a solid choice.
    Major Spey Dude Wannabe 2/26/2013 9:42 am This 7-weight is insanely smooth, powerful, light in the hand, and hella-forgiving! The grip tells your hands exactly where she likes to be held and although being a "tip-casting" rod, you can feel her load down into the butt-section. I have put this rod in countless folks hands, over the past 2 years that I've been fishing it, and NEVER has it been met with, "this rod kinda sucks"!!! It blows every $849 and less 7-weight out of the water. Rio Skagit Flight 525 and Rio Steelhead Scandi 480 are the lines that I fish on this rod but I've put as heavy as Flight 575 and as light as Steelhead Scandi 450. Wide margin of error on this rod....it likes all types of lines.
