Fly fishing is a grand excuse to find yourself in beautiful places with something fun to do. Truth is, if more people went fly fishing, the world would be happier. And to properly enjoy and celebrate the sport of fly fishing, one should focus on its defining attribute...the cast. Although it's true that any fly rod or outfit can catch a fish, it's not true that all cast the same. To enjoy each fly cast, a worthy fly fishing outfit (rod, reel and line) should be balanced and efficient. That's exactly why we at Leland Rod Co. designed the Sonoma Traveler Outfit.

In a chaotic world of fly tackle choices, our simple goal was to provide a sensible solution. We did this by designing our own gear from the ground up, where each component (fly rod, fly line and fly reel) complimented one another. The result of this project is a balanced and efficient trout fly fishing outfit, where the whole is greater than the sum of parts. Not only is this outfit brilliant for anyone just getting into the sport. It's also the perfect solution for any angler who's grown tired of tinkering with disconnected fly gear. It's all right here waiting to be efficiently cast and enjoyed.


This outfit didn't happen by luck. It was born from thirty years of retail experience, where we noticed our customers not only struggling with the overwhelming offering of big-brand fly gear...we also noticed them struggling to use it. We tossed out industry lingo like “proprietary technology” and “super performance” and instead, focused on balance, efficiency, control and accuracy. To us, fly fishing is an intimate sport where trout should not just be caught, they should be earned. And good casts earn fish!


Take for instance our Sonoma Traveler fly rod. It's not your standard nine-footer. We found by dropping one foot in rod length, we greatly reduced “swing weight,” making our fly rod feel even more balanced in hand. We also found that a shorter fly rod created naturally tighter (more efficient) loops of fly line, making casting much easier. Add to this, the most comfortable cork handle shape in the business and our balanced and efficient Sonoma Traveler is truly an extension of your arm.

A fine rod like our Sonoma Traveler is made even better with the right fly line. Our Leland New Zealand “Pliny” Trout line is just the ticket. In fact, it's so good, we named it after our favorite, local beer (Pliny The Elder). We softened the line's coating, shortened the head (the weight-forward part) and created the most efficient profile to efficiently roll your casting energy down the fly line, through the most efficient leader we've ever cast (our New ZealandTrout Leader) and to your fly. When you cast this line on our rod, you'll finally understand what we mean by efficient.

Of course every fly fishing outfit needs a fly reel. Yes, it does store your fly line...but there's more to it than that. The proper fly reel should be the correct weight to balance out the rod. It should have the correct capacity to store not only our fly line, but have enough backing (emergency line) should a big trout head down stream. A fully-sealed, disc-drag is unnecessary for trout, so we went with the classic and proven click and pawl system. It's easy to adjust, and requires little to no maintenance. Best of all, when your trout takes off, the classic sound of our Leland Classic Trout reel celebrating the moment will make you smile. Yes, it's fully-machined, anodized and all, but most importantly...this is a fly reel your granddaddy would want.

When assembled, our fly rod, our fly line and our fly reel makes every forty foot trout cast efficient, controlled and accurate. More importantly, our Sonoma Traveler outfit will make your day on the water that much better and really, that's why we all fly fish in the first place. Take our word for it. This outfit is the one we use every day at our ranch, teaching people how to efficiently control their fly line. It's also the outfit we personally take to the water on our days off.

We designed this outfit to make casting more fun primarily for beginners. The good news is, we did it. The better news is, we also created a fly fishing outfit that any expert fly angler will enjoy. Remember, this is our best-selling fly fishing outfit and comes with a full, money-back guarantee. Buy it and try it in your own back yard. Take a few days and think about it. Have your buddy try it. You won't be disappointed. If you are disappointed, we'll think you're crazy...but we'll still give you all your money back.


Pro Review - Leland's Casey Rolig

In a world full of “do it all” nine-foot five-weight fly rods, eight foot rods have become less and less common. But spend a day fishing with the Leland Sonoma Traveler Outfit, and you'll understand why other brands are missing out on a huge opportunity for fun and efficiency.
 
In hand, it feels lighter than just about any rod I've fished recently. But regardless of the actual weight, it's the reduction in “swing weight” provided by the shorter fly rod length that makes it not only feel lighter, it makes it more balanced. This shorter length of rod provides for naturally tighter loops of fly line, resulting is easy accuracy.
 
On a recent trip to Big Sur, California, I had a great time casting dry flies in tighter casting quarters. From close to medium-far, this balanced rod was a joy to cast and sensitive enough to land dry flies with ease. As a five weight, it still has ample line mass for efficiently delivering hopper dropper rigs when needed. It's also great as a nymph rig, but the trout were looking up so I was fishing dries. The fly line supplied is butter smooth. It seemed to have a softer finish than most “performance” fly lines of today. The line floats like a cork and my mends we nice and smooth.
 
Leland's Classic Trout Reel isn't just the correct size to accommodate my fly line and plenty of backing, it's also the correct weight to balance the entire outfit. Add to this a unique porting pattern that any grandfather would approve of and a classic click and pawl drag system and you've got a timeless fly reel. It also comes with a leather pouch for protecting this fine reel.
 
Wrap it all up and this outfit truly embodies what trout fly fishing is all about. Effortless, efficient, accurate casts are memorably provided by this balanced and beautiful outfit. Dry fly fishing and light nymphing are more enjoyable than ever and each fish is earned, not just caught. This four-piece outfit also comes with a nylon covered hard tube with integrated reel pouch for safe and easy transport.

Leland Sonoma Traveler 8ft 5 Weight 4-piece Trout Fly Fishing Outfit:



This is the outfit that Leland used on his days off!



Efficiency is the secret of any well-crafted fly cast. A balanced fly fishing outfit, like the Leland Sonoma Traveler, embodies this principle. Our rod, reel and fly line compliment one another and amplify your body's movement, transferring your effort through the fly rod and into the fly line. The result are casts that celebrate our sport by providing you with controlled distance, accuracy and a subtle presentation, all with astonishing ease.



Our Leland Sonoma Traveler fly rod is designed to respond to the short, compact casting stroke we teach in our Leland Method casting classes. The five weight Sonoma Traveler will help you cast any trout fly with astonishing accuracy and efficiency. Unlike the more common nine-footer, our eight footer tracks truer, is better balanced in hand, and will make you a better caster by rewarding the right stroke with brilliant results. Designed as the ideal beginner's rod, this portable four-piecer ended up as one of the finest trout fly rods we've ever cast.



Adorned with our special Leland grip, the Sonoma Traveler fly rod literally fits like a glove into your hand, adding intimacy that other fly rods often lack. Our intuitive grip provides you with added purchase and control of our already well-balanced fly rod. This rod is truly and extension of your body. Of course it's finished with all the right components, including a highly-figured wood insert on our double-uplocking, anodized reel seat. Our non-glare blank finish combined with and our darkened guide set provides a stealthy approach when casting and fishing.



Fly lines too often are a secondary consideration. Not for us at Leland. We searched and tested high and low for the perfect fly line. Our goal was to find a fly line that blends casting efficiency and enjoyment with fishing function. After much research, casting, testing and frustrating results, we decided to embark on our own journey to design the best fly line. It took us a while, but we did our job. Our Leland weight forward, five-weight floating fly line (affectionately called the "Pliny" after our favorite beer) casts like butter and floats like a cork and very noticeably compliments the efficient taper of our Leland Sonoma Traveler fly rod.

Not kidding, when you cast our Pliny line and our special Leland leader (12' 4x) on our Leland Traveler fly rod...you'll finally understand what true casting efficiency is. Also, if you cast only our Pliny line's head (weight-forward section), the result is always a beautiful and accurate forty foot cast. Any knowledgeable fly angler will tell you forty feet is the magic mark. However, if you do need more distance, our line shoots with ease.



To store the perfect fly line, we obviously needed a fly reel. Again, we worked hard to design a fly reel that balanced correctly with our fly rod, both physically and aesthetically. The Leland Classic Trout fly reel is the answer. When combined with the Leland Traveler fly rod and our fly line, the whole is much greater than the sum of parts. With an adjustable and proven click and pawl drag system, this fly reel nods to the great fly reels of the past, while employing better contemporary materials and manufacturing process, ensuring a fly reel that will last a lifetime. Your grandfather would approve of this reel's quality and he'd certainly approve of the celebratory sound it makes when your fish heads downstream.



Finally, you can store your balanced Leland Sonoma Traveler fly fishing outfit handily in our nylon-covered rod tube. With its integrated, padded reel pouch, you can leave your Leland Classic Trout fly reel mounted proudly on your favorite trout rod for easy storage and more importantly, quick rigging when it's time to hit the water.

detdesc::At Leland Rod Co., we are obsessed with only one thing, the "master cast."

For over thirty years, we've mentored thousands of fly fishers who aspire to master cast on our 13 acre Fly Casting Ranch in Sonoma, California. Our facility is solely dedicated to the ultimate fly cast and now we offer the crescendo of our commitment to the cast in the form of our library of Leland Rod Co. balanced outfits.


Every product designer behind Leland Rod Co. is a F.F.F. (Fly Fishing Federation) Master Certified Casting Instructor.  Simply put, we are students of the defining attribute of the sport of fly fishing, the cast.  The pinnacle of fly casting is the master cast and every balanced fly fishing outfit we design embodies our commitment to this belief.


It's the proper balance of ingredients that makes anything worth the effort and worthy of existence. Take our Leland fly rods for example, we don’t tout the latest materials as “game changers,” nor do we run to the trough of technology for a new gimmick to market. Instead, we research, design, tinker, revise, test and even abuse our work. If newer materials allow our fly rods to cast more efficiently and with better balance, we use them. If they don't improve our fly rod's casting pleasure, we pass. Only when a Leland Rod Co. rod provides master casts, do we put our mark on it.


Beyond master casting pleasure, we also wanted our Leland fly rods and reels to look like fly tackle should, as though you discovered it in your great uncle's dusty garage. We like rich, figured wood fitted smartly to darkened nickel silver hardware. We respect tight thread wraps, clean epoxy work and dense, high-grade cork handles as well as machine-cut metals. In essence, we craft our fly rods and fly reels in the hopes to one day receive a quiet, approving nod from your grandfather.


If you yearn for something more, if you feel blessed for every minute you spend by the water celebrating the cast, if you desire to earn your fish with a master cast, not just catch it...a Leland Rod Co. balanced outfit is probably in your future.

Leland Florida Keys Bonefish Fly Line, 8 weight



Chasing bonefish with a fly rod provides you with an angling experience that rivals just about all other forms of fishing. In most cases, the setting is breathtaking, the water is warm and clear and just ahead of you is a school of tailing bones awaiting your cast. If it's on the mark and lands with a subtle presentation, you might have a chance to go tight. If not...you'll have a front row seat to a bonefish blowup and you'll have to start your hunt all over again.



For situations like this, we at Leland have sharpened our fly line design pencils to create what we consider to be the best-casting, best-fishing bonefish fly line on the planet. First we started our focus with the optimal head length to allow for quick, accurate casts, when the fish are close, yet still enough head length for a stable, longer cast if needed. We then worked hard on our fly line's profile to again find the balance between an authoritative fly delivery and subtle presentation. Finally, we worked hard to find the right fly line coating, which would deliver butter smooth casts without line sag.



Well, we did it. Our Leland Florida Key's Bonefish fly line is ready to serve you up with effortless, accurate casts while on the flats. It's noticeably more enjoyable to bonefish with the right fly line. Furthermore, it's noticeably more enjoyable to cast our best bonefish fly line on the best bonefish fly rod...our Leland Rod Co. Florida Keys Bonefish fly rod.

detdesc::Bonefish fly RodLeland Florida Keys Tarpon Fly Line, 12wt

This fly line is perfect in regards to quality and efficient profile.
However, it's not the color we ordered from our supplier. Now's your
chance to get the best-casting fly line at an unheard of sale price.


Tarpon are admittedly one of the most challenging fish you might ever consider pursuing with a fly rod. With it’s oversized eyes, deep body and nervous nature, it seems strange that this fish would venture into the salty shallows in search for food. But it’s the overwhelming desire to crunch on a fresh crab that brings this amazing fish onto the flats.



Your goal is to deliver a crab pattern right on target and with as subtle a presentation as possible. Then, you might have a small chance of hooking yourself a permit. Often overlooked is the right fly line to increase your odds of success. At Leland, we know how important the right fly line is and we’ve gone to great lengths to design what we consider the best permit line ever made. It’s our Leland Florida Keys Permit Fly Line.



With the primary goal of accurately delivering a weighted crab pattern in windy conditions, we worked hard on creating a weight forward fly line with enough line mass to carry a heavier, bulkier crab pattern with ease. Next, we tested head lengths until we found just the right length for quick loading casts, yet still retaining stability. Finally, we modified the front taper of our fly line with the goal of finding the right balance between efficiently delivering the larger crab patterns we often use, but still with a bit of stealth.



With this line, casting a crab pattern with a nervously-thumping heart, at a tailing permit actually is enjoyable. Without struggling during your cast, you can focus your efforts on your prize permit. If you want to experience a Zen moment while chasing permit, we recommend you cast our best permit line on our best permit fly rod, our Leland Rod Co. Florida Keys Permit fly rod. With this balanced outfit you’ll actually begin to believe that permit aren’t so tough to catch after all.

Leland Sonoma Coast 9'3" 7 Weight 4-piece Fly Fishing Outfit:



A brilliant and balanced outfit perfectly suited for bass, steelhead and large trout.



Efficiency is the secret of any well-crafted fly cast. A balanced fly fishing outfit, like the Leland Sonoma Coast, embodies this principle. Our rod, reel and fly line compliment one another and amplify your body's movement, transferring your effort through the fly rod and into the fly line. The results are casts that celebrate our sport by providing you with controlled distance, accuracy and a subtle presentation, all with astonishing ease.



Our Leland Sonoma Coast fly rod is designed to respond to the short, compact casting stroke we teach in our Leland Method casting classes. This 9'3" seven weight is exactly the right length and weight to not only efficiently deliver larger flies to bigger fish, but also control your drift. This particular fly rod is a nod to the past, when most fly anglers chose a single handed fly rod when chasing steelhead and larger trout. It allows for easy roll casts, when back cast room is limited, as well as super smooth overhead casts. This is a fly rod that would make your grandfather smile.



Adorned with our special Leland grip, the Sonoma Coast fly rod literally fits like a glove into your hand, adding intimacy that other fly rods often lack. Our intuitive grip provides you with added purchase and control of our already well-balanced fly rod. This rod is truly and extension of your body. Of course it's finished with all the right components, including our double-uplocking, anodized reel seat. Our non-glare blank finish combined with and our darkened guide set provides a stealthy approach when casting and fishing.



Fly lines too often are a secondary consideration. Not for us at Leland. We searched and tested high and low for the perfect fly line. Our goal was to find a fly line that blends casting efficiency and enjoyment with fishing function. After much research, casting, testing and frustrating results, we decided to embark on our own journey to design the best fly line. It took us a while, but we did our job. Our Leland British Columbia weight forward, seven-weight floating fly line (affectionately called the "Pliny" after our favorite beer) casts like butter and floats like a cork and very noticeably compliments the efficient taper of our Leland Sonoma Coast fly rod.



To store the perfect fly line, we obviously needed a fly reel. Again, we worked hard to design a fly reel that balanced correctly with our fly rod, both physically and aesthetically. The Leland Classic Drift fly reel is the answer. When combined with the Leland Coast fly rod and our fly line, the whole is much greater than the sum of parts. With an adjustable and proven click and pawl drag system, this fly reel nods to the great fly reels of the past, while employing better contemporary materials and manufacturing process, ensuring a fly reel that will last a lifetime. Your grandfather would approve of this reel's quality and he'd certainly approve of the celebratory sound it makes when your fish heads downstream.



Finally, you can store your balanced Leland Sonoma Coast fly fishing outfit handily in our nylon-covered rod tube. With its integrated, padded reel pouch, you can leave your Leland Classic Drift fly reel mounted proudly on your favorite big trout rod for easy storage and more importantly, quick rigging when it's time to hit the water.

detdesc::Of all the available fly fishing tools that will help you properly catch and release a trout, the landing net is the best solution to ensure your trout will live a long, happy life. It's not only an iconic piece of fly fishing gear (something your grandfather actually used), it's a practical angling product that will make your (and your trout's) experience even better. Our Leland Landing Net is just what you need.

A fly fishing net is nothing new. They've been around for many years, but a few things have changed since your childhood. First and foremost, gone is the course nylon netting material of the past. Although functional for catching and killing a fish, that green nylon netting was like razor blades on the soft skin of your trout. Scraping scales, cutting under-skin and removing protective slime were the common results with rough nylon netting. Those problems are long gone. Today, our Leland Landing Net uses a UV-resistant, clear, soft-rubber material for our netting bag. This new material ensures your wild trout can rest at ease in the base of your landing net...in the cool, oxygenated water. Bonus, your fly hooks won't get stuck in the netting either.

Size does matter. The right size landing net for the job is crucial. Too big and it's an annoyance in the field, while fishing. Too small, and your well-earned fish won't properly fit. Our hand-made, varnished-hard-wood Leland Landing Net is the “Goldilocks” of nets...just right. With it strapped to the back of your vest or pack, you can wind your way through tight brush without tiresome snags. With it, you can softly scoop up all reasonably-sized trout prior to a proper release.
featdesc::But even the right landing net is no good to you if it floats down stream and around the bend. That's why our landing net comes with an ingenious retention system. At Leland, we're anglers, and we know what happens while fishing...slips, falls and drops. Our magnetic lanyard is easy to use and ensures you'll never lose your landing net.

Just clip the aluminum carabiner to any D-loop on your vest or pack. Heck, you can even clip it to your wading belt or belt loop. Once attached, your net is at the ready and will never be lost. When you need it, just pull on the net's handle and the magnetic release will break free. Our heavy-duty, elastic lanyard allows for long reaches without binding or extra cordage. When finished with your proper catch and release, just move the net's handle near the carabiner and you'll hear an audible “click.” That's our magnet announcing a solid connection and you can then release your landing net.

The Leland Landing Net is a complete solution for any angler wanting to ensure a healthier trout release. Stop squeezing trout with your dry bare hands...your killing them. Stop scraping your fish with harsh nylon netting...your killing them. Stop beaching your trout on hard, hot rocks...your killing them.

Get a Leland Landing Net and protect your favorite trout fishery.
