The Drift XL range of Wychwood extendable including the Wychwood Drift XL Fly Rod 9ft 6in #5 4 section have been designed specifically with the modern river angler in mind, for those that want that little extra edge! These rods have a unique extendable butt section which allows, when required and extension to the rod of up to 8-inches instantly transforming the rod to suit the situation that you find yourself fishing in. The twist and lock feature of the extension, means that the Wychwood Drift XL Fly Rod, at its shortest length, can be used for presenting dry flies at range, or quickly extended to its longest length, for close quarters nymph fishing.

Produced using super-fine grades of carbon, the lightweight and slim line Drift fly rods feature an action that suits all styles of river fishing. These fly rods will allow you to hook and hold fish at short and medium range with very thin tippets, small dry flies and or nymphs, without fear of the hook pulling out. You can also take your time and let the rod take the strain when playing big fish in fast water, the softer action will ensure every lunge is cushioned effectively.

These tactical 5 weight fly rods including Wychwood Drift XL Fly Rod 9ft 6in #5 4 piece feature an understated matt black finish, with black, lacquered whippings and olive highlights. Personally we love black rods rather than rods that flash and glint as this DOES scrare fish as sun bounced off of a rod. The new P cork handle on the Drift fly rod features a camo look to ensure that it is discreet, not as bold and bright as the usual cork, in any challenging fishing situations.

This features a unique 20cm marker whipped the blank above the handle, in most competitions, only fish of 20cm or more are counted so you can quickly check if it is a qualifying fish if in doubt.

With high end cosmetics, Pac Bay guides throughout, anodised satin finish reel seat, and understated graphics these rods look as good as they perform! For fly fishermen less is more, less flash and graphics helps you fishing.
