"The best kid's fly fishing rod and reel outfit on the block. Your little one will be casting darts!"



Nothing is more spectacular than 
the glimmer in a kid's eye when they hook their first fish, and the 
Leland Sonoma Emerger 7ft 9in 4wt Fly Rod Combo is there to deliver 
the magic time after time. It's more than just a youth fly rod and 
reel, it's an initiation to a pastime that will last a lifetime.

In 
keeping with Leland's standard for excellence, the Sonoma Emerger is 
built to stand up to the wear and tear that comes with learning to 
fly fish and mastering tight loops. Featuring a convenient four piece 
construction, the Leland Sonoma Emerger Youth Fly Fishing Combo 
travels easily in its matching blue rod and reel case.

The package 
includes a fly rod, fly reel, fly line and backing, and rod and reel 
case, meaning the sooner you get the Leland Sonoma Emerger 7ft 9in
4wt into a young fly fisher's hands, the sooner you'll have a fishing 
buddy to teach you a thing or two.

Of all the outdoor activities you can share with your child, fly fishing arguably is the easiest. Even on day one, minute one, your child will be wearing a big grin while fishing with you. No bait necessary, just some fake bugs. Put them in the water, where the fish are, and it's darn-near inevitable a fish will be caught. Start with panfish (perch) in a small farm pond. Catch a few and your child's confidence will grow. Next, you're off to a trout stream.

Start a family tradition of fly fishing together. Create meaningful memories that will last a lifetime and do it with our Leland Sonoma Emerger Fly Fishing Outfit. You won't regret a thing.

Far too often kid's fly fishing equipment is gimmicky with foam handles and crazy graphics. No corners were cut when designing our Emerger outfit. From our fly rod's youth-sized cork grip to our Leland "Pliny" fly line (a $60 value), nothing was done on the cheap. Why? Because your kid should have as much fun as you when fly fishing.

Truth be told, this little outfit will probably become your favorite small stream trout outfit...it's that good. Good luck getting it back from Junior, though. He or she will like it just as much as you will.

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.

Specifications:


The Diesel Switch Outfit includes:
• 
Diesel 7110-4 Switch Rod
• Fly Reel: Loop Evotec 7-9
• Airflo Running Line 20lb
• Airlfo 450 Rage Compact Skagit Line
 Skagit Mow Tip Kit (Light)
• Extra Tip
• 9ft 12lb Leader

• Rigged and ready to fish



January 24, 2014 (Sonoma, CA):  When conditions and terrain change often – and when you're steelheading, they absolutely do –  a versatile rod can mean the difference between focusing on your gear and focusing on the fish. The Red Truck Diesel Switch Outfit is a comprehensive solution for steelhead angling that combines one of our favorite switch rods with a fly reel and fly line system custom tailored for changing conditions.

Complete ControlFrom first prototypes to the final package, our team of rod designers managed every element of assembling the Red Truck Diesel Switch Outfit to ensure a truly balanced system. The Diesel 7110-4 SwitchLoop Evotec reel, and custom line system were meticulously selected to operate together. It's this level of control that translates into an outfit that goes beyond your typical rod/reel/line combo. And it's this same idea of control that we want to pass on to anglers and steelheaders looking for a rig that will give them total coverage of the water they're fishing, regardless of the conditions. The Red Truck Diesel Switch is your solution for steelhead fishing made simple.

The Rod: Though the switch rod is a relative newcomer in the fly fishing market, it's made a lasting impact on the world of steelhead fishing. Designed to act as both a single-hand and double-hand fly rod, most of today's switch rods are best described as a compact two-handed fly rod and they offer a smart solution for any angler wanting to join the two-handed revolution. Our Red Truck Diesel 7110-4 Switch Rod is indeed a hybrid of both single and double-handed, but it makes no compromises on either front and provides exceptional performance across the board. Whether you're indicator fishing, swinging deep, or fishing near the surface, the Red Truck Diesel 7110-4 Switch Rod is a perfect solution. With extra length for big mends and and power for big fish, yet compact enough for effortless single-hand casts, this is the workhorse of our lineup.

Additionally, the Diesel 7110-4 comes with the hallmark ingenuity that sets Red Truck apart. Sanded, precision-fit ferrels provide a secure fit that stands up to the torsional stresses of swing fishing and spey casts. The switch grip is made from the highest grade cork, designed for ergonomics as well as enhanced feel. And the rod cap comes equipped with a bottle opener for post-chrome refreshment.

The Reel: There's no better fit for the Red Truck Diesel Switch than Loop's Evotec 7-9 Fly Reel. Of course, it's fully sealed and machined from aircraft grade aluminum. But it's dimensions and weight perfectly balance with the Diesel Switch, and we challenge you to find a smoother drag system or a more durable reel.

The Line System: The outfit comes ready for every type of steelhead fishing and includes a running line, 450 grain skagit head, and a set of light MOW tips. The short taper excels when you're casting large flies and heavy tips, and everything is easily interchangeable depending on the conditions. 

The Rundown: It comes down to balance you can feel and an outfit you can trust. Steelheading is as fun as fly fishing gets, but it can be hell on gear. Enjoy every cast and every fish with the exceptional control of the Red Truck Diesel Switch Outfit. And trust that it's as tough as it is versatile, giving you range on the water and countless seasons of steelhead.


Pro Review - Leland's James Park


On a trip to Oregon's Rogue River last October, I fished two days with the Red Truck Diesel Switch Outfit. Although not known for large steelhead, the summer run of steelhead on the Rogue offers an opportunity to catch a solid number of fish in the four to eight pound range. The Rogue is also a medium-sized river and perfect for a switch rod.

Although switch rods make easy work of indicator nymphing for steelhead, my go-to technique is swinging a fly cross current. It allows me to get the most out of every cast and every take. Plus, the Rogue River's fish are notoriously aggressive and will happily grab a well-swung fly.

The Red Truck Diesel Swiich Outfit is the ideal tool for this kind of fishing. At eleven feet in length, it's just right. Not too long for a river the size of the Rogue, yet still long enough to provide efficient casts and mends. As a seven weight, it has the appropriate line mass to deliver the common sizes and weight of flies used on most steelhead rivers. The Red Truck Diesel Switch Rod's power is dialed in right, making a three pound fish fun, yet it can still cast a Skagit head with a heavy tip and big bug.

Of course this rod is well-finished with its classic “snake belly” blank and all the right components, including tight thread wraps and smooth epoxy work. The cork grade is very nice and the handle shape feels great in hand. There's even a bottle opener in the rod cap.

Included in the outfit is a complete line system. It comes professionally rigged and ready to fish, including backing, an Airflo Ridge Running Line (#20) and an Airflo Compact Skagit Head (450 grain), as well as Rio's MOW Tip Kit (Light). The line system makes casting a breeze and the Rio MOW Tip Kit allows the angler to dial in the perfect tip regardless of fishing conditions.

The fly reel is the equally solid Loop Tackle Evotec 7-9. This fully-machined and anodized large-arbor fly reel comes with a completely sealed disc drag system, which is butter smooth and very powerful. Essentially, this reel is bomb-proof, great looking, and a good fit with the Red Truck Diesel Switch Rod.

Casting this setup on Oregon's Rogue River was epic. Easy mends resulted in amazing line and fly control. I beached about six fish on the swing during my two days on the Rogue, which is about average...nothing to brag about, but each was the result of smooth casts and controlled swings. If you're looking for the same experience, the Red Truck Diesel Switch is as good as it gets.
