Leland Sonoma Traveler 8ft 5 Weight 4-piece 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 commitment. 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. This eight footer tracks true, is 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 dry 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 on the water.



Fly lines too often are a secondary consideration. Not with us at Leland. We searched and tested high and low for the perfect fly line. Our goal was to find a fly line that combines casting efficiency with fishing function. We did our job. Our Leland weight forward, five-weight floating fly line casts like butter and floats like a cork and very noticeably compliments the efficient taper of our Leland Sonoma Traveler 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 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 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::Leland Sonoma Trout Fly Fishing Outfit 8' 5wt:



This is the outfit that our instructors use to teach casting classes at the Leland Ranch!



Designed to be the best fly rod to use when learning how to fly cast, it's also the perfect outfit for most anglers, as they head for the hills to fish smaller streams for trout.  It will make fans of experienced casters as well, packaged in a cordura tube with a Leland Classic Trout fly reel and a proprietary fly line that aids casting and fishing. This outfit is impossible to beat.



To go with our Sonoma rods, we wanted a reel that was affordable, durable, and classic in appearance. In the Leland Classic Trout, we've used anodized, machined aluminum, proven click-pawl drag system, and quick, easy spool interchange to produce a reel that's as cosmetically beautiful as it is mechanically sound.



With an easy-casting weight forward taper, our fly line turns over fly and leader well and loads the rod appropriately at both close and intermediate distances. At our Sonoma Ranch, and across the fly waters of Northern California, we’ve seen how this line casts and mends exceptionally well, and helps new and returning fly anglers put the fly where it needs to be.



Also included in this outfit are fly line backing and a cordura rod/reel case. We will rig this outfit for you to the Leland Standard, wherein all connections between the leader, fly line, fly line backing, and fly reel will be assembled and tested to the greatest strength and reliability before arriving at your door, ready to fish, right out of the box.

detdesc::
The Casting in Fly Casting
Bringing the rod handle to a "stop" after it has been smoothly accelerated.
That is all there is to it.


This "smooth acceleration to a stop," happens in two opposite directions for the basic overhead cast. The basic overhead cast results in the casting loop going away from the target and towards the target in the air.

Smooth Acceleration

This smooth acceleration of the handle results in the fly line, in the air, being pulled straight into a line behind the rod tips path. This smooth acceleration also results in the weight of the line resisting the rods patch and thus storing energy in the form of a bent rod. A bent rod is a expensive spring and a springs only job is to store and release energy. Now we have stored stored energy in a bent rod, we now must release it.


The Stop
The “stop” releases the bent rods stored energy into the fly line. This bend of the rod is transferred in into the line in the same shape that the path of the rod tip takes while unbending, this rod tip path creates the formation of the recognizable, classic casting loop.


The Loop

The Loops direction, that looks like a U shape or elongated candy-cane unrolling in the air, dictates where the fly is carried. The tighter the loop the more accurate the fly is carried. 


Summary

Pull the line straight in the air with the rod. Stop the Rod. Watch the Rod release the energy into the fly-line. Watch the fly line loop drag your fly to the target.  Enjoy.

Want to get started casting Master Casts today? You can, and you don't even need to a "real" fly fishing outfit. In every one of our beginning fly casting classes, we always start with our Master Cast Practice Rod. Although it might look like a cat toy (and it is the greatest cat toy, by the way) our Master Cast Practice Rod is truly the best tool to initially learn how to "pull fly line to a stop" and efficiently form controlled loops. You can even learn in the comfort of your office or home any time you wish. Check out our Master Cast Practice Fly Rod.


Through a hands-on demonstration of fly rod mechanics, fly line construction and the tapering of the leader you will understand the energy transference of your equipment and how it leads to a perfect fly cast. You’ll also learn how proper stance, grip and arm position can increase your casting efficiency and relieve potential fatigue.

As the lesson progresses, we’ll teach you to adjust the shape of your casting loops, as well as their angle and direction, to accommodate varying conditions you may encounter astream. You’ll practice adding and stripping line to increase your casting distance and control slack, and how to “gently alight” your fly on the water.

First Steps of Learning to Fly Cast
• Equipment language and assembly
• The theory of tapered equipment
• Body position, stance, and grip
• "The power of the stop"
• Smooth acceleration of the casting stroke
• Forming Loops, open and tight by having the tip of the rod unbend in a open or tight path.
• Aiming loops, changing direction and plane
• Adding line to the system
• Stop and Drop
• “Gently alight” your fly on the water
• Enjoy

August 1 (Sonoma, CA): If you're new to fly fishing, you should know that the defining attribute of our sport is the unique way we deliver our fly. It's called fly casting and this activity should be celebrated.

To truly enjoy fly casting to the fullest, you need a balanced outfit that feels comfortable and stable in your hand. This doesn't happen by chance. Rod length, rod weight, line weight and reel weight all play a role in a truly balanced outfit. Miss a step and the outfit falls out of balance...and so does the fly casting experience.

Furthermore, a fly fishing outfit must be efficient at amplifying and transferring your body's movement and energy into the fly line, which is the goal of any efficient fly cast. Rod taper, blank thickness and materials all play a role in this quest. When you smoothly pull our Leland Sonoma Trout fly rod to a stop (the secret to a good cast), you'll be rewarded with the smoothest, most-efficient fly cast you've ever made.

The right fly line also makes a difference for fly casting enjoyment. The correct taper, head length and weight done smartly makes casting that much easier and fishing more effective. Our Leland Pliny fly line solves the riddle. Color-coded, so you can always efficiently control your line and put your fly where you want it. And since 90% of trout are caught within a forty foot (or less) cast, our Pliny fly line assures that distance on every cast. Simply put, this fly line is a joy to cast. 

Sure a trout fly reel is just a storage device for the fly line, but the Leland Sonoma Trout fly reel is one heck of a reel. Fully-machined from solid, bar-stock aluminum, then anodized for a long life a hard fishing. Its simple click drag needs no adjusting. It will keep your fly line from overrunning when a trout charges off with your fly. If necessary, you can slow down that fish by “palming” the exposed rim of the fly reel's spool. It's simple, elegant and functional. Most importantly, it perfectly balances with the Sonoma Trout fly rod.

It takes focus and planning to design a fly fishing outfit where the whole (rod, reel and line) is greater than the sum of parts and that's exactly what you get in our Leland Sonoma Trout Fly Fishing Outfit. Fly casting becomes effortless and accurate as you discover efficient control of your fly line and catch more fish.

Our Leland Sonoma Trout is the perfect fly fishing outfit for anyone wanting to learn how to cast correctly and efficiently, then take smooth loops of fly line to a small trout stream and apply your craft. Controlled distance, accuracy and subtle presentations will be yours at will. Fly casting in this manner alone will put a smile on your face, but when your fine cast is rewarded with a wild trout, the wold becomes a bit better. 

If you've been wanting to fly fish, or if you've been struggling with your current rod, reel and line, it's time to find balance and efficiency in our Leland Sonoma Trout Fly Fishing Outfit. By the way, this is the same fly rod, reel and fly line we use for fly casting instruction every day at our fly fishing ranch in Sonoma. We love it and you won't be disappointed.


Pro Review - Leland's Burke White

Spending my days at the ranch assisting anglers with more efficient fly casts, I've noticed a thing or two. Mainly I've noticed most anglers using more energy than necessary to present the fly accurately.

One thing is for sure, using proven fly casting principles to more efficiently cast a fly line is important. However just as important is a balanced and efficient fly fishing outfit and the Leland Sonoma Trout Outfit is just the ticket.

The Leland Sonoma Trout outfit is brilliant. It's balanced in hand, which not only makes this outfit more comfortable to hold, it makes casting easier. It's also incredibly efficient at amplifying our students' casting energy and transferring this energy into the fly line. Simply put, this is one easy casting fly fishing outfit.

Any angler will quickly notice how easy this outfit is to cast, and when tight loops jump efficiently off this rod's tip, confidence is born. Confidence on the water makes all the difference...in enjoyment and fish-catching success.

If you're new to fly fishing or on the hunt for a truly-balanced and efficient fly fishing outfit for trout...you just found it.

New to Fly Fishing?

The Leland Ranch was built for you. Here in Sonoma, we celebrate this great sport, by sharing our passion with others, like yourself. We can think of nothing better than helping you understand how to efficiently form a loop and control your fly line to subtly land your fly exactly where you want it. Our goal is to put you in the magical fly fishing photograph that's buried deep in your mind. Our goal is to provide you with the confidence to head out into Nature's beauty with a grand excuse to be there. Our goal is to aid you in collecting truly memorable fly fishing experiences that will last a lifetime.

We do this in an enjoyable atmosphere, by sharing with you just the right amount of necessary information (principles) to give you the knowledge (confidence) to one day jump into a drift boat with a guide or to just head out there by yourself, feeling prepared to fish the places you've always dreamed about. You can do this and we're here to put you in your own beautiful fly fishing photograph. It's time you started fly fishing.


Already Fly Fish?

The Leland Ranch was built for you, too. You already can catch fish on a fly rod, and that's great...but what if we could help you catch even more and bigger fish? Interested? We'll give you the gifts of efficient fly line control and increased distance. Whether you're fly casting in the salt or two-hand casting on a broad river, we're ready to help catch you more fish. With the right principles and a balanced outfit, you'll be able to cast in situations that other anglers deem impossible. You'll be able to cast to fish, that to other anglers, don't exist...and you'll be able to naturally fish your flies in waters that other anglers can't fish.

We call this concept, “private water.” The secret is, private water already exists on every public river or stream you've ever fished. To unlock this secret water, you just need the right casting principles and we've got them here on the ranch awaiting your visit. You'll soon be on your way to becoming the best fly caster you know. Believe us, your angling buddies will notice...and so will you. Better yet, when you can cast in places other anglers can't...you'll catch more and bigger fish than you ever thought possible.


Been fly fishing most of your life?

Yup, the Leland Ranch was built for you, as well. World-class fly fishing photographer, Val Atkinson, has a unique talent for capturing on film, the magical moment of the perfect fly cast, which is the ultimate celebration (and defining attribute) of our sport. As Val sees it, the beauty of a perfect cast should be shared with others. World-class angler Goran Andersson celebrates the magic moment, when a perfect cast results with an earned fish.  As he sees it, this type of experience approaches perfection. It's these inevitable truths, exposed by Val and Goran, that eventually become the end goal of our sport and we're here to share them with you.

We understand you...you've been there and done that. From Atlantic Salmon to Billfish, you've got a grand slam under your belt and you've even caught a steelhead on a skated fly. We're sure you've already made a perfect cast and probably earned a fish or two. We know you still remember that magic moment, when everything came together as it should...perfection! What if we could show you how to do that every time you fish, because now your every cast is efficient, controlled, accurate and subtle? Well, we can and we'll share with you the knowledge collected from true, master-anglers from around the world. With this, we'll add even more enjoyment to the sport that you already love. This we promise.


At Leland, we are students of fly casting. We study our sport, the cast, the equipment and the resulting experiences. We're always looking for ways to make fly fishing, casting and catching more enjoyable and memorable for you. If you too like learning, bettering your craft and collecting valuable memories that last a lifetime, it's time for you to visit us at the Leland Ranch in Sonoma. You won't regret it.
