Our Artisan range represents the ultimate in double handed rods available today. Combining our revolutionary SINTRIX material, with beautiful classic styling, the blanks for these Salmon rods are manufactured in our Alnwick factory and the rods are built and carefully finished with the finest quality components sourced from around the world.
Designed to offer user friendly performance to connoisseurs of fine fly rods.
One of the key features of our SINTRIX material is to conceal incredible reserves of power behind an extremely light and well balanced product. The 15'4" Artisan rod has a progressive action and for those fishing medium/long floating or sinking lines, it has enormous reserves of power in the lower part of the rod. However, as is characteristic of this material, the rod also reacts incredibly well to shorter, heavy lines. The middle to tip recovery of the blank is lightning fast with little or no deflection making it a top performance rod wrapped in a stunning exterior.
Described by nearly all who have used it as the best they have used by far, the 13'9" Artisan has an action not dissimilar to that of the 15'4", however, because of its length and balance, it has the feeling of a much faster blank. The reserve of power and incredibly fast recovering blank provides the caster with a versatile rod favouring shorter headed lines. Those who fish with this dynamic fast rod will feel something incredibly light and ultra-responsive, but with a backbone of steel.
