Early fly anglers, those of the 1800s or so, really did not cast, they simply held a long, heavy rod high and let the wind drift the fly, tied to line made from horse hair, over the favored target. Today anglers can choose from a wide array of lightweight, superior Fenwick HMG rods for hours of casting with and into the wind.

HMG fly rods are designed with a crisp, medium-fast action that generates a high line speed to stabilize the line in the air for effortless, pin-point accurate casts up close and at a distance. These rods are ideal for popping bugs, dry flies, nymphs or streamers, just right for panfish, trout, bass and any other fish a fly angler chooses to pursue.

Six models of the HMG fly rod are offered, from the small-water 7 foot, 6 inch, 3-weight that weighs a mere 3.0 ounces to the 9-foot, 8-weight for heavier applications. Each rod features a large diameter stripper guide and double foot snake guides, a “AAA” grade cork handle, an anodized aluminum double-up lock real seat and a hook eye on the rod butt to stow the fly when the rod is not in use.

For easy and safe transport in a vehicle or plane, the four-piece rod is supplied with a partitioned clothcovered rod tube.
