The Yamame is named after one of the most prevalent fish in the mountain streams of Japan. It is a rod with a lot of power, and the rod with most backbone we currently offer.
This 7:3 rod is ideal for consistently landing good sized fish, yet it has enough tip action and sensitivity that even small fish feel great with it. If you frequently catch larger fish (>16"), this is the rod we recommend. Since less of the rod flexes when casting, casting feels very precise.
These rods have a subdued matte finish. We took most of the gloss out of these rods to reduce any glare and their visibility to fish in places with more tree cover.
