Up for sale is my Meiser 4 piece Highlander switch rod which is an excellent trout spey rod. Length 10'6”, 4 piece, grain window 200-350.
Meiser web site (R. B. Meiser Fly Rods - Recommended Lines For R.B. Meiser 3/4, 4/5 and 5/6 wt Switch Rods
) basically says:
This is the finesse rod of the Highlander Switch Rod Series, and is an excellent mult-purpose tool for all small game fish.
This is a superb rod for pursuing game fish from 1 to 8 pounds.
It is an ideal tool for all applied Trouting techniques: From high stick nymphing, swinging wet flies, to dead drifting dry flies. The 2/4 wt. rod has the delivery capability to punch a bushy Stimulator into tough winds, yet will still have the finesse to allow a lofty, soft-landed parachute Adams over spooky back water gulpers. The 2/4 wt. rod is tippet friendly down to 5 X, so is an ideal ultra-light two handed rod for dead drift dry fly fishing.
When balanced to the proper line systems, it will best be used as two handed over head tool, total eliminating the physical burden of the single hand double haul. It is light enough in hand that it can be used as single hand over head tool if desired. Over head deliveries will allow the angler to easily and consistently reach distances in excess of 90'. It can also be used as two hand anchor point Spey presentation, easily reaching distances of 80'.
This is an ideal rods to use for targeting river borne game fish while standing in the casting platform of a moving drift boat, utilizing either overhead or anchor point Spey deliveries.
Original cost $585.00 Cordura covered rod tube included. My name is inscribed on the rod.
Also included is a Steve Goodshall custom made sgs Scandi Trouty Mend Master integrated with a Mend Master running line. Tip is 226 grams. Original cost $74.50
Why sell? I have moved over to fiberglass trout spey and find it fits my casting style much better as I mostly fish with bamboo in single hand rods.
