Fenglass Fly Rod

When your old man took you fly fishing back in the day, he probably brought a wicker creel basket, an old click-and-pawl reel, and a Fenwick Fenglass Fly Rod. Modeled after the old Fenwick rods produced back when Fiberglass was in its prime, the Fenglass will take you back to the days when being a fly angler meant making slow and deliberate casts to rising fish on rivers, streams, and lakes.

The Fenglass Fly Rod looks the way a throwback rod should—old school. Its classic looks will pair well with that old click-and-pawl reel you inherited from your old man, while its cork handle and reel seat give the rod that lightweight feel you want from a fiberglass rod. The three piece design helps the blank bend from butt to tip when you hook into a fish, and it gives the rod that medium action that results in those smooth and accurate fly presentations that seem to fool more fish. Whether you're fishing for brookies in the catskills, cutthroats in the Rockies, or Northern Pike up in the U.P., there's a Fenglass available for any type of angler, so go ahead and give your old click-and-pawl reel a fiberglass home.

Glass W/ ASS

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

After casting all of the modern big box glass rods, this one definitely feels like the fastest to me. It'll take modern fly line (I'm using perception) and shoot line half a mile. For use on smaller streams with a lot of overhead brush, or no back casting room, the 4 wt is perfect. I look forward to big hoppers this summer with the fenglass.

GLASS!

The FENGLASS is amazing, picked up a 5wt and decided to take it out to a local stream on a cold wet day. The ammo of choice was a streamer and this little rod made it happen! Sticking small browns felt like I hooked into a trophy Tarpon. This rod won't disappoint, the finish is classic!

Love This Rod!

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Purchased this rod in a 4 weight for small streams. Throws dries and small streamers with ease and accuracy. Provides great feel in both the cast and the catch. The rod reacts effortlessly to the tug and results in fewer breakoffs and a whole lot of fun.

Glass Is Not DEAD!!

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Absolutely love this rod! Great feel, accuracy and the presentation on dries is great! I have 3w and 5w and from small dries with the 3 to streamers with the 5 I have been fishing these exclusively since getting them. The color takes you back to Grand dad's old school rods, get one if you want a nice buttery presentation and feel. Keep em wet
