The Redington 3 Piece Butter Stick Fly Rod evokes days of yore when American muscle cars reigned supreme, it was safe to hitch hike relatively speaking, and fly fishing was still a semi secret cult. Three slim pieces of fiberglass have a beautiful buttery hue and when acting as one, bend with polished elegance. This little piece of heaven is what you'll want in your hands when you're heading out for a mellow float n' fish on a low flow, languid river. Fiberglass is a classic rod material when the waters are small and the flies are smaller. The action is slow but not sloppy, letting you feel the rod unload, which is something that's sensual for seasoned anglers and essential for beginners. Should a fish bite, the Butter brings you closer to the action, sharing the sensations of head shakes and runs almost as though you were the fish. The low weight rod options give you the ability to finesse small casts and sweet rolls with a hopper or dry fly. Long time anglers could probably put a leech or bugger on the 5wt and hit the bulls eyes with little difficulty. High grade cork makes the grip great, whether you choose the half well or cigar shaped handle. Three pieces makes the Butter beautiful to transport, and alignment dots leave little room for error. Small streams, tiny flies, and the pure pleasure of being outside on the water is when you'll want the Butter.
