REEL Fly Fishing is taking you back to where it all started with our custom hand built split cane fly fishing rods. Over the past 3 years we have been testing and refining our split canes to make sure each and every component is perfectly suited to each blank.
Each rod is painstakingly crafted over a number of months and starts life as a finely selected piece of Tonkin Cane, from here it is honed, refined and planed into 6 perfectly fitting pieces in the hexagonal shaped blank.
Unlike graphite fly rods where each blank is identical, canes offer a unique feel and action on each rod, this individual “quirkiness” is what really defines a split cane fly rod. (no two are alike – and feature a unique identification code)
Split cane fly rods are wonderfully suited to dry fly fishing due to the way they transfer energy into your fly line, allowing for easy mends and extremely subtle presentations.
Enjoy a legendary REEL Split Cane Fly rod at a fraction of the price and without any waiting list.
