When looking for a fly rod company that was special, we turned to Walters. They really bring the meaning of "small batch" home when it comes to fly rods. The 3, 5, 6, & 8 wt. rods they build, are built with incredible craftsmanship and attention to detail. We have not had a single guest cast one and not fall in love, just as we did. Walters fly rods were born from a passion of fishing and wanting to have an impact in the world of fly fishing and be a part of the heritage and history of our great pastime. Each rod is specifically designed for fishing in the southeast and trust us, they excel and impress every cast.
If you are interested in casting a Walters rod, please reach out to us! We would love to set up a casting demonstration for you!
The Laurel Fork 3 wt. is the rod everyone loves to cast. With a medium fast action it is the perfect match for small mountain streams where accuracy and a delicate touch mean everything. It was designed with a deep backbone and has plenty of power to fight fish. Making precision casts is effortless and can also be a lot of fun to overline with a 4 wt. line and throw some smaller streamers. Captain DeRight loves the Laurel Fork so much, you would be hard pressed to find him in a boat without it. If you are looking for a lightweight precision fly rod, this is the one for you!
The Chattahoochee 5 wt. is a rod that makes us get excited about five weights. It is a fast action rod that has a very solid backbone. It is the perfect rod for fly fishing in the southeast with its versatility. Delicate touch with incredible accuracy, even at distance. With one of Walters' fly reels on it, you'll find it is balanced incredibly well. The fast action lends it to making accurate long casts with only one or two false casts. It easily shifts from indicator rigs to throwing small streamers without needing to adjust the cast. If you are in the market for a 5 wt. this is definitely one every angler needs to consider.
Captain DeRight is a firm believer that the 6 wt. should be the standard fly rod everyone starts with. He also believes that the Tuckaseegee from Walters is one of the best examples of a 6 wt. available today. Its a fast action rod, with a delicate touch, that begs to be cast. Whether your throwing indicator rigs, dries, or streamers this rod gets the job done well. It also responds very well to a sinking line when needed. We use them for everything from trout to smallmouth, as well on Stillwater. Once you make a couple casts, you will not want to put it down. It also sports a full wells grip with a fighting butt and a very handsome finish.
Are you looking for a rod that will cast big streamers for browns on Saturday, stripers on Sunday, and some reds at the end of the month? If you answered yes, then you a Cinder Creek is a rod you need. The Cinder Creek was built for casting big articulated streamers, shad, crab, and shrimp patterns. You can go from a full floating line to a sink tip and the rod doesn't change, it just wants to cast and bring in fish. With a fast action, full wells grip, and a fighting butt its designed to make magic happen and not sacrifice comfort. It can easily be described as a heavy hitting cannon you can work all day, but will leave you smiling and wanting to cast it just a few more times!
