Many anglers have expressed how much they miss the feel of graphite rods from 20-30 years ago. Many feel that those were the best fly rods ever created. Bringing those memories back, these are old school graphite rods utilizing original modulus graphite and internal ferrules in an unpainted, unsanded charcoal color.  Accompanied by a buttery action reminiscent of your favorite graphite from 20-30 years ago.

All rods made by hand with high-grade nickel silver reel seats, unique burled wood inserts (7wt has an all metal reel seat) flor grade grips, and Snake Brand guides.

9' 6wt 2 piece

Can't say enough good things about it. The best 9' 6wt I've used for dry flies. Moderate action, able to cast plenty of distance if you know how. Very accurate at all distances. Fit and finish is better than Scott, Sage, Wintson, etc. Great rod for larger rivers where you are fishing for large trout, especially when you are fishing size 12 or smaller flies. Protects lighter tippet great. Strong enough butt to land fish quickly. Extremely light.

I have plenty of 9' 6wts and have cast plenty more. Right now in this configuration I own an RPL 690, SP 690, (2) TNT 9' 6wts w/ spigots (firehole, and another un-named one), (2) Scott G 906s. The Livingston is better than all of them. I can't really say if I catch more fish with it but it has relegated the Gs to the rod rack. I'll keep the RPL and TNT in the boat rigged with dry dropper or big dry flies. I've used original Scott Gs forever and this is a step up. I think its a nicer rod than the new G series as well.

If you like rods on the slower end of the spectrum, I'm convinced this is the best rod out there. Fast rods have their place, but if you can cast a slow one into its backing IMO its a much better fishing tool than a fast one - less fish broken off, and I think mending and presentation casts are easier with a slower rod.
