While the folks at Redington [1] have come up with a whole range of fly rods, this one really stands out when it comes to trout fishing (just as the name suggests it would!). The rod is available in line weights from 2wt to 6wt and ranges from 7’6” up to 9’. Likely because of the marketing-grenades lobbed at us by the rod companies, leaving us so dazed that we believe we need their newest, high-end rod, simply because it’s new and expensive. The quality is outstanding, especially for the price. Buying one is practically stealing one. Quality continues to be of uttmost importance to the company. I bought the 4 wt version primarily for trout fishing on my annual trip to the beautiful mountains of Utah. Redington has worked their magic by reinventing the classic rods of the 1970s, with all the flex and accuracy you need to fly fish for trout. Major rod manufacturers are forced to produce casting tools that follow market trends. The folks at Redington are harking back to an era of classic rods [2] with this model. The slow action is great for smaller streams and rivers, but it won’t be well-suited to larger rivers or bigger trout specimens. Still, most fishermen tend to choose stiff, high-dollar rods. Weighing in at only 2.9 ounces, the five weight Classic Trout is lighter than some of the “advanced-technology” top-dollar rods. The mid-flex action of the rod makes it possible to load a long leader system (mono-rig for me). Though the blank, guides and reel-seat look and feel great, I would describe the reel seat components as nothing more than “fine.” They look nice and function properly, but in the process of fastening down a reel, you can sense they are just bare-bones components, certainly not the solid, quality feel of more expensive hardware. Love the physics behind the whole thing... ;), Les Kish replied on Fri, 03/31/2017 - 09:36 Permalink. The handle is slightly bulky, made of middle-of-the-road cork—it should be sanded to a thinner diameter for any caster that doesn’t have mega-mitts. Which means their most expensive rods usually meet the criteria of the most popular trend, whether or not that particular action provides pleasant casting.

(This is the downfall of any fly rod that actually bends at normal fishing distances.) The drawback is under strong winds and or long distances. You can read more on our. Unlike many basic models, this isn’t one that you’ll want to upgrade after a year or two. If you want to throw big flies 60 feet, these are not the right rods.

Craftsmanship Ethan Martin replied on Mon, 10/16/2017 - 12:54 Permalink. It was palpable. Not a big deal, but worth noting. Fly rods store energy when they bend under the weight and momentum of the fly line. Great reaction and reel. A trampoline functions the same way: stretching to store energy under the weight of a person, then expending that energy as it launches the person up in the air. Just great rods at the price. The rod gives you tremendous feel when loaded and precise accuracy.

I had the reel seat fall apart when tightening up on the reel during one of the first times I used the rod. Are you helping other anglers?

Can't say enough good things about the Classic Trout. While you might struggle on big rivers to cast over 50 feet, you’ll have no problems for shorter distances up to 45 feet.

I have been using it as my go-to nymphing rod for over a year now (I fish it once or twice a week). Still use it. There will always be a market for "status rods" but for sheer fishability you can't buy a better rod for the money.

It’s hard to tell that it’s a low-budget rod if you’re judging by the blank and guides. At only $149.99, you can buy six Classic Trouts for the price of some of today's flagship rods. 11 foot nymphing rod is, and I know because I have used them. It’s comfortable and lightweight, making it a good alternative to the Redington CT for all-day casting.

I've "flex tested" the Redington CT and like what I've observed so far. The fine-tuning on this rod means that while accuracy and presentation come out top, it is surprisingly powerful for a small stream trout fly rod, too. And the hardware (reel seat, guides and keeper) are a dark gunmetal gray. It’s finished in a deep brown with silver accents.

While preparing for our Classic Trout review, we discovered that the CT really is perfect for dry flies. It has a medium to medium fast action that is well suited for presenting dry flies softly. Your dry flies will be so convincing that you’re almost guaranteed a bite: you’ll have no trouble catching fish with this beauty. Even had a guide comment on how nice the action was. Most of them are so rigid that they only bend when casting a very long line, as in sixty feet or further.

We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock. Alignment dots make it easy to put together and the titanium oxide stripping guides are hardwearing and durable.
