MKII 8W Fly Rod

Excellent rod in all respects. I will be taking it

to Pyramid Lake in Nevada this year for some good sized cutthroat trout. I also have the 6W

model. Perfect for stillwater fishing where

distance casts are the name of the game.

This rod can do it all.

I was lucky enough to win the 7wt model in a give away from Cortland. Since then I've been able to put this rod to work, it casts like a dream even in strong winds, super light weight compared to other 7 and 8wt rods i won and use. It handles warm water species like Small and Largemouth bass, Norther Pike and walleye with no problem, and it has been ideal for nymphing Steelhead, and throwing big streamers to Browns in the rivers and larger streams here in Central New York.

Excellent Coho Rod for the Money

Very rarely do you find a 10' 8-wt rod that can readily cast very smooth, tight loops as easily as a 9 footer, or 8'8". The MKII is a notable exception, performing well above it's price point. In the world of "sleeper" flyrods, this is tops. The only thing I would change would be the wire guides. I would swap them out for conventional snakes or heavier wire single foot, as they do squeal sometimes when reeling under load. Not a harsh criticism, just preference. Thanks for another awesome product Cortland!
