December 6, 2013 (Sonoma, CA):  Leland's Emerger Fly Rod Outfit is all about tradition. Like your first fly rod, it's the chance to introduce a child to a lifelong relationship with the outdoors. It's about giving them the gift of time spent in nature. And here at Leland, we think that's about the best gift you can give a kid.

More than just a fly rodWhen it comes to construction and attention to detail, there's nothing childish about the Emerger Fly Fishing Outfit. Built with the same precision as its big brother, the Leland Sonoma Traveler, the Emerger Outfit is meant to be fished hard. The adaptive-fast action makes it the ideal tool for new anglers who are honing their cast, but its versatility means the Emerger never outgrow its usefulness (no matter how big they get). From trout streams to farm ponds and everywhere in between, Leland's Emerger Outfit is the perfect companion for days spent on the water.

Purpose-Built: From tip to butt, the Leland Emerger Outfit has been designed to meet the needs of young anglers. At 7 feet 9 inches in length, it has enough reach to accommodate long and accurate casts, yet it's compact enough to provide excellent line control for new casters. The Emerger's proprietary grip was designed to fit comfortably in smaller hands, keeping the focus on the fundamentals rather than too-large and cumbersome gear. A 4-weight, the Emerger is both the perfect weight for youngster and powerful enough to fight big trout and mid-size fish. And it's four piece construction and travel case make it perfect for camping trips and easy carrying.

What's in the box? Leland's Emerger Outfit comes with everything you need to get fishing, minus a few of your favorite flies. Featuring a durable Red Truck ¾ weight fly reel and weight-forward floating fly line, it's a carefully balanced outfit that's anything but your typical big box “kit.” Everything comes assembled in the Cordura rod tube for easy transport and solid protection from the wear and tear of little ones. Plus, it's available in pink or blue so that everyone in the family is covered.


Pro Review - Leland's Burke White


As a father of two young ladies, I'm officially stating for the record that fly fishing is the best outdoor activity for all ages, especially the young ones.

But before I delve into fly fishing, let me share something I recently discovered about my daughters when I asked them if they'd like to go on a hike. Their response was, “Why?” My initial reaction was to think my daughters were just being lazy. “Well, for exercise, fresh air and beautiful scenery,” I said.

It wasn't until a bit later that the thought dawned on me. My children weren't lazy at all, they just needed a reason to hike, something to do once we got there. The next time I proposed that we hike, I tested my new theory. I simply asked them, “Who wants to go fly a kite?” Voila! Both daughters jumped at the chance. They threw on their shoes and we hiked to the top of a nearby hill (the very same hill we hiked prior), this time with no questions...just smiles. We had a reason to hike. Call it what you will, a reason, an activity, an excuse. Children just want to know why they're doing something, and flying a kite at the top of a hill was reason enough.

Enter fly fishing. To me, fly fishing is the best excuse to get out of the house, to go someplace beautiful with those you love and have something fun to do when you get there. If done correctly, it requires very limited equipment and brings human and nature together. Unlike adult minds that succumb to the self-imposed pressure of knowing everything about something before participating, children will jump right in and play. This youthful approach to life and learning dovetails perfectly with fly fishing.

Casting a fly rod isn't hard when you're a child. You just pull the fly line forward and stop the rod's tip in the direction you want the line to go. The fly lands in the water and the fish take over from there. If they're interested in something they put it in their mouth to inspect it. It doesn't matter what the fish thinks, the fact is, your kid just caught it...and on a fly rod to boot.

Our Leland Rod Co. Emerger fly fishing outfit was designed specifically for your kids (and mine). It's the right size and weight for their smaller hands and is perfect for catching the two fish available to just about everyone...panfish and trout. It's balanced perfectly and makes for the easiest and most efficient fly casts. It comes completely rigged and ready to cast upon arrival. Just tie on a fly (any fly) and cast it on the water. The fish will respond and you just found a fun reason to spend quality time with your children.

Hidden behind the fun activity of fly fishing is the real secret to the sport. Whether you drive or walk to your water, you'll have time to talk with your kids. You'll notice nature's best work in the form of plants and animals. You'll share stories of your childhood and create meaningful memories that your children will cherish forever. These are the simple but important moments in life that will happen when you and your child fly fish.


Leland Rod Co. knows this and that's exactly why we designed the Sonoma Emerger fly fishing outfit.

Red Truck Fiberglass Outfit:

 

Like stepping into a time machine, the Red Truck Fiberglass Outfit will transport you to a simpler time. Whether you will find yourself boulder hopping the North Fork of the Yuba or casting dries to rising fish on Hot Creek you will appreciate the balance and design of the Red Truck Fiberglass Outfit. Designed and balanced to fish small freestone rivers and spring creeks this outfit will greatly enhance your enjoyment of small stream and spring creek fishing.

 

The Fiberglass Fly Rod: While fiberglass is hardly a new material; we have improved traditional fiberglass by reducing weight and designing a versatile action.

  • The soft tip acts as a shock absorber protecting the lightest of tippets.
  • Fiberglass is incredibly durable making it the ultimate boulder hopping rod.
  • At 7 foot 6 inches this rod excels when fishing brushy creeks, pocket water, and small spring creeks.
  • The versatility of this rod is truly incredible. The soft tip allows for delicate presentations on spring creeks; while the powerful butt of the rod will effortlessly cast large hopper dropper rigs even when the wind picks up.
  • The ergonomic grip feels great and increases casting efficiency.
  • You can't help but smile when fighting on this rod.
  • Handcrafted and finished with the best components money can buy this rod looks and feels amazing in hand.

 

The Red Truck Diesel Reel:  A perfect match for the Red Truck Fiberglass fly rod is our Red Truck Diesel Fly Reel. Taking notes from the reels our grandfathers used this reel is durable, simple, and elegant.

  • The click and pawl drag system provides perfect amount of tension to protect light tippet and fight fish.
  • Machined from solid bar stock aluminum this reel will be appreciated for generations to come.
  • Whether you are pulling off line or hooked up on a fish this reel screams fly fishing.

 

The Line:  This outfit comes balanced with a double taper 4wt. This line enhances the feel and performance of your outfit.

  • No stretch design allows for efficient casting and hook sets.
  • Made out Polyurethane which is incredibly durable and can withstand exposure to sunscreen, gas and diesel. All other fly lines are made from PVC which is horrible for the environment.
  • Designed in a natural color for stealth when fishing gin clear spring creeks.

 

When you put this all together you have a highly effective and fun tool to fish small freestone rivers and spring creeks. You will search out new and exciting places to fish this outfit. It’s durable design and easy to use action make it the perfect outfit to teach your kids on.

 

Where will your Red Truck take you?

Fish Camp Member Review:

Thought I would post a short review of the Red Truck Glass rod. I have had it for a few weeks now and have had a good chance to put it through it's paces.

When I first saw them for sale with Leland Fly Fishers, I wasn't ready to pull the trigger with them costing four hundred, and not being able to really find any info on them (here's that info). Well, luckily, one came up on a local secondary market and I grabbed it.

They only sell one glass rod and it is a 7.5 foot 4wt in 3 pieces. It is very well appointed. The blank is a transluscent tan/bamboo/light brown/caramel? (not sure what to call the color, but I really like it.) It has white solid glass spigots. Uplocking nickel hardware over a really nice piece of wood that blends well with the blank. It comes in a great yellow aluminum tube with black top and bottom, and a divided sock. Inside the cap for the tube is what they call the Brews-key, which is a bottle opener. Love this idea.

But the great thing is this rod. It is quick for glass, but VERY smooth. The tip has a beautiful flex and progresses into the butt, which is pretty slender for glass, but still has lots of reserve power. I am able to cast two feet of line with lots of feel with the tip and then haul out sixty feet as it gets into the butt power. It's real beauty though is found in what you would want for this configuration, at about fifteen to twenty five feet of line. It just seems to cast itself.

The grip on this is one I was really hesitant about (all those guys smack talk Leland grip shape). Not being able to give it a try before buying, I was not liking the look of the grip, but once I got it into my hand, I think it might be one of my favorites. It just positions everything so naturally.

Overall, I really like this rod. I just wish they would come out with some other configurations. I would love to have an eight foot five weight in this series.

Will post some photos when I get some taken.
