“Big Hitter” Trout Package
$1,699.00 – $1,749.00
There is no finer tackle for pursuing trout in Alaska or anywhere else for that matter.
An amazing Sage R8 rod that will allow you to easily cast all day. From short casts with dry flies to long bombs with a Dolly Llama, the Sage R8 can do it all. It is a fast action rod with a very delicate tip but still packs plenty of power to handle trout, Dollies and grayling. A great Alaska rod that also will excel anywhere you will ever trout fish. (Note that the photo shows a different rod than the Sage R8.)
Matched with a machined aluminum Hatch Iconic 4+ reel that is durable, reliable, and beautifully made. The Iconic 4+ is a perfect fit on a 9 foot 5 and has all the drag you will ever need.
The package includes an Elite Rio Grand weight forward floating fly line. It is the finest line that Rio makes and is the ideal combination of power and presentation.
The package comes completely set up and ready to fish. 20lb backing and a 9 foot tapered leader are included. The rod comes with an aluminum rod tube and a cloth rod sock. The reel has a padded neoprene carrying case.
If you want a little bigger rod, we offer a 6 weight version of the package that comes with an Iconic 5+ reel.
Both rod and reel have an unconditional lifetime guarantee to the original owner. This package ships for FREE in the U.S.
