He wanted a longer rod to keep more line off the water and to reach over the numerous weed beds which impede fly travel. The rod was very successful, so T&T offered it in their catalog. It is a medium dry fly progressive action which can reach out when necessary, but also excels at casting in close. This rod has never been fished. New Henry’s Fork rods are available with a lengthy wait time for $3150. This rod is offered with a new DB DUNN 58 in. x 4.5 in rod case in blue cordura tube with carrying strap plus the T&T Rod Tube for $2800
