Thomas & Thomas "Solar" Fly Rods

Item #TT100

Refined power for the tropics. Ultra fast action, flagship saltwater series

THOMAS & THOMAS "SOLAR" SALTWATER SERIES FLY RODS - These rods are fabulous (Bob). The culmination of two years of R&D on the competitive saltwater fly fishing circuit, working with some of the best guides in the Florida Keys and the Bahamas, T&T has come up with a gem. With SOLAR they developed an immensely powerful rod and then reigned it back a little so that it is dialed for optimum performance at 45' to 65'. All the top tournament guides agree that this is the 'zone'. At these distances accuracy is enhanced and the reaction of the fish is visible. And don't worry, the SOLAR can throw an entire fly line for a 'Hail Mary'. But it is dialed for the zone, strong enough in the tip to pick up and recast heavily weighted flies at these distances and possesses the butt power to fight the fish close to the strength limits of IGFA tippets. Thomas & Thomas focus's not just on creating 'casting rods', but on perfecting 'catching' rods. The SOLAR embodies this spirit and represents a new standard for fly rods engineered specifically for the flats.
