Fly Rod Reviews | Rocky Bob’s Fly Fishing Rods | ColoradoRocky Bob’s hand-made fly fishing rods cast like a rocket. It loaded the fishing line so fast, it shocked me. I used the Rocky Bob fly rod with a no-frills reel, and the rod still made the line do some amazing things I didn’t think a line could do. These fly rods from Rocky Bob’s Fly Fishing Rods don’t just dance in your hand, they sashay.

Fly Rod Reviews | Rocky Bob’s Fly Fishing Rods | ColoradoRocky Bob’s fly rods cast like a classic fly rod blended with the performance of modern fly rod technology. When I tried some casting with the Rocky Bob fly rod, I was able to do something I’ve never been able to do before: I cast an entire length of 105-foot of fly line, which is really unusual. It’s impressive that this graphite fly rod combines the touch you get from the full action of a bamboo rod, and gives you the added ability of shooting out the line that far.

Fly Rod Reviews | Rocky Bob’s Fly Fishing RodsBEST PART OF THE SUMMER!!!! I have always thought that it is very special to use a rod for the very first time. My son, Colter, is going into his senior year and wanted to take his buddy out fishing. His friend built a rod as a 4-H project, and I had Colter use Rocky Bob’s custom fly rod for the very first time. On his VERY FIRST cast, he hooked a beautiful, 14-inch rainbow, and landed him. I told him that that was the way to break in a new fly rod.

Fly Rod Reviews | Rocky Bob’s Fly Fishing Rods | ColoradoRocky Bob’s hand-made fly fishing rods can really shoot the line. They load very quickly at a close range, and yet have a surprising amount of backbone. Once it was loaded at a closer range at 30-40 feet, it could easily shoot another 30 feet of line.

I had a chance to test-drive a Rocky Bob fly rod out on the water and really like it. It shoots line so far at that finish of a cast and has great action.

Fly Rod Reviews | Rocky Bob’s Fly Fishing Rods | ColoradoThe balance on the Brookie fly rod from Rocky Bob’s Fly Fishing Rods was amazing, and yet the rod was also really sensitive. The line shot out like no one’s business. The Brookie fly rod is an unbelievable custom-made rod at a great entry-level price.
