Made for aggressive casts where accuracy is far more critical than distance

Product Details

Veteran warm-water fly fisher, Dave Whitlock teamed up with our designers to develop a special series of rods for those warm-water critters that prefer to hide in the thick stuff where they can burst from the cover, even darkness to ambush their prey. 


Originally they were meant for freshwater species like bass, pike and panfish, but the saltwater crowd quickly discovered them to be an effective tool for snook, redfish and other shallow-water species. These are rods meant for fishing the shoreline, the edges… abrupt weed lines, rocky points, submerged trees and the mangroves. They are specialty rods designed to make short, aggressive casts where accuracy is far more critical than distance. They load easily at twenty-feet, yet have enough power and accuracy to punch a streamer, 60-feet into a small opening in the brush. They are shorter than your normal fly rod with fast tapers to help you keep your loops tight and line trajectory low to clear shoreline cover and overhanging limbs. They are subtle yet extremely powerful with sufficient strength to keep a big largemouth away from the pads or a snook out of the thick stuff. Not a lot of false casts are necessary with these beauties. Just get your range right and drop your bug on the spot. Then pick it up with one quick back-cast and do it again. There are five, 4-piece models, ranging from 5- to 9-weights, varying in length depending on the line size and target species. Each comes in a soft, protective rod sock and hard case for storage and travel.

Review (Tell us Why?: First, the bad. The ShoreStalker looks like it has really good cork from the factory. After a few outings on the water, the filler falls out. There is no way this is Flor grade cork. It's not even approaching it. Easily the worst quality cork I've seen on a rod costing this much money, and far worse than my Loomis E6X spinning rod. This rod turns into a limp noodle with more than 40' of line in the air, and will not shoot it accurately past 50' with any consistency. It will not pick up more than... More details
