The "Neversink" 8' - 5 weight

At 8' long, the Neversink is a somewhat specialized tool that excels where a little longer reach is required. This rod has a light tip and strong butt section that makes it very well suited to dry-fly fishing on larger streams. The Neversink would be the perfect rod for rivers like the Henry’s Fork. This rod has a fast, progressive action that produces high line speed for tight loops and positive turnover.


Unlike other fast action bamboo rods, the tip of this rod does not “fold over” on very long casts or when split shot and strike indicators are added. Instead the smooth progressive taper drives the load further down the blank producing a clean, powerful cast.

Best line match: Rio Gold WF5F
