The name "Mykiss", is the latin name of the Rainbow Trout (Onchorynchus mykiss)
The very well balanced Mykiss rods are a perfect rod for any fly fisherman/caster. Despite the fast action you still have good line control, and plenty of power for long casting.
We have designed the Mykiss rods using Advanced Helical Taper, which assures the rod is a great fishing tool, not only as “stiff” casting tool. It is a joy to fish, cast and play fish on.
In this series you find a great rod for a lot of fishing situation such as fishing in streams, in rainbow trout fisheries, for seatrout in both streams and along the coastal areas etc etc.
For added comfort when playing the bigger rainbows we have added a fighting butt on the # 6 and # 7 models.
The blank is Transparent dark olive. Wrappings are in matching dark olive with slim trimming made of 2 turns of metallic silver, pink and olive thread around the logo and shooting guide. This makes the Mykiss rods beautiful (in it's discrete rainbow trout colors) and very well performing.
Even though this is not the most expensive rod in the A.Jensen range we have not chosen cheap fittings. For the handle we use top quality AAA grade Portuguese cork, shooting guides are the best in the business at present time - the Titanium guides from American Tackle.
When you take the price into consideration, the Mykiss rods turn out to be a very good value for money.
