The small water DART features a short-range fast action for chasing wary trout in still and clear water, close quarters, or obstacle-ridden streamsides. Specifically designed to drive precise loops under the branches of a willow while still providing delicate presentations and delightful feedback to the angler. The KonneticHD materials combined with performance-friendly fast action gives fishermen the ultimate competitive advantage against highly selective trout. The 0-4wt models at 7'6" provide the backbone of this family with ultra-light performance, while the shorter model in a 3wt provides a specialty tool to the angler looking for accuracy in extremely confined areas. The lightest, most precise casting small water rod ever made, the DART is destined to become a cherished tool in the trout fisherman’s quiver for years to come.

I love hiking into high mountain lakes and creeks and this is the rod to take along. Pair it with RIO's Creek line and it's awesome. It'll cast a good distance - up to about 35' - with good accuracy. And present those tiny flies into tight spots. It has enough backbone to punch through much - but not all - of the wind you'll encounter as well as give you a lot of confidence in working that big brookie. The fit and finish is great - you'll be proud to show this one off along with the pictures of the hike and the fish.
