Inspired by the master bamboo rod makers of the past, Reilly Rod Crafters’ “Mountain Midge” has a feel and an aesthetic that harkens to angling’s “golden era.” But, make no mistake, this rod is built for TODAY!
Two hardware options are available and you can select your preference at checkout.
With modern fiberglass construction and a sweet progressive action, the Mountain Midge is ideally suited to small creeks and headwater streams, where its 6’9” length is perfect. If you’re looking for a small stream fly rod, the Mountain Midge will impress.
However, this rod is more versatile than one might imagine. It can reach out to 60’ with no problem, and is as happy delivering a small terrestrial pattern as it is a size 22 Griffith’s Gnat. It can handle the biggest trout in the pool, but also gives the angler joy with a scrappy eight-incher.
The three-piece golden-hued blank is dressed with classic brown wraps, and quality AAA cork with nickel silver winding check. The reel seat is stunning hardwood with either nickel silver cap and ring or screw lock, in a traditional down-locking configuration.
This rod is handcrafted with pride in the USA, and carries a lifetime warranty.
