Access 5-weight 8'6" Fly Rod—Mid Flex, 2-piece

2⅛ oz. 8'6", 2-piece, Mid-Flex Fly Rod for 5-wt. line.If there is a rod model that is considered the best “first” rod it is 8-foot 6-inch 5-weight. It is dead center in the middle of the rod arsenal in length and line weight and is good for panfish, trout, and bass on almost any type of water. This Access two-piece version is the perfect rod for the angler who fishes locally in creeks, rivers, ponds and lakes. Designed with our proprietary tapers and actions developed on Helios by our rod designers, the 865-2 offers premium performance, is lightweight, and comes at a remarkably low price. Made in USA.
