About the Wychwood RS Fly Rod
The Wychwood RS Fly Rod is specially designed to give anglers performance and power, without losing the imperative feel in the blank. Each rod has been individually honed and tuned so that the line rating is spot on, offering you the perfect amount of feel and balance when fishing.
The RS range of fly rods have been designed with an action that is a shade slower than fast, which most anglers will find easy to work with and easy to handle. With extra power featured in the tip and the butt section, this makes casting at a distance effortless and particularly easy, especially with modern fly lines like the Wychwood Connect Series. The action also allows the rods to not be overly stiff, which is great for when you are fighting fish. This is because the whole blank will work together and let you bring in your catch far quicker and without fear of putting too much strain on a light tippet.
The rod blanks are made of incredibly durable and tough, high modulus multi-layer Toray carbon and this carbon combination also lets the rod maintain a light weight. The rods all feature a machined, high gloss, anodised reel seat, section alignment guides and a AAA cork handle. The handle also features a 3K Carbon insert with the Wychwood logo and the rod itself has a matt grey finish with high gloss black whippings and silver highlights.
This range of rods are without a doubt, the most advanced casting tools Wychwood has ever produced. The 9ft #5, 9ft #6 and 9ft6 #6 all have a reverse half wells handle and the 9ft6 #7, 10ft #7 and 10ft #8 feature a full wells handle with a fighting butt.
The Wychwood RS Fly Rods are built with a 4 piece construction and are supplied in their own stunning, carbon rod tube.

About the Wychwood Truefly SLA MKII Fly Reel
The Wychwood Truefly SLA MKII Fly Reel has a large arbor cassette design and pushes the boundaries on the previous model with a slimmer profile and a very light weight.
The reel goes through a process that removes materials from the die cast aluminium frame and cage without compromising the reel’s integrity and providing a lighter weight. The semi-sealed Rulon drag system provides total control and smoothness and the large arbor spool assists in line retrieval and helps to reduce any line memory.
The reel has a cassette locking spool system that includes a sculpted spool release for ease and speed when changing spools. The spools are made from high quality polycarbonate for durability and there is also a unique dot alignment cassette spool fixing for convenience.
This flyreel combines good looks with serious performance values and includes a smooth and warm satin finish.
The Wychwood Truefly SLA MKII Fly Reel is supplied in a moulded EVA carry case and includes two spare spools.
Super large arbor spool
Aluminium die-cast frame and cage
Unique dot alignment cassette spool fixing

Wychwood Connect Series Fly Line
The Wychwood Connect Series offers game anglers a premium quality fly line, with design and features normally only found on much more expensive lines. Advanced tapers and factory fitted welded loops ensure the connect series lines from Wychwood stand out from the crowd and offer fantastic value for money.
There are a total of 10 different densities within the range, each for a different fly fishing situation. From Floating lines through to very fast sinking lines the Connect Series has the perfect line for every water condition.
When the designers of the Connect Series fly lines were planning their lines, they soon focused upon three key features that anglers most wanted out of their fly line. These are casting distance, fly presentation and most importantly bite detection. Each of the Connect Series lines have been carefully planned to achieve all three of these key design points.
The 10 fly lines feature heavier and longer front tapers which will help you to produce tight loops when you are casting. This allows for accurate casts at longer distances to be easily achieved and with minimal effort, ensuring you can cover more water in less time and put your flies right under the nose of those wary Trout.
The PVC lines include additives that produce a slick coating with reduced line memory and therefore offer better presentation. You'll find whatever fishing situation you are in, your presentation will be improved whether it's up close or targeting fish feeding at range.
For being able to 'feel' your line, the line core is made from low stretch braided nylon and helps produce a stiffer line so you can recognise smaller tugs on the line. The braided nylon also helps produce a small amount of 'give' so you can avoid any smash takes.
One of the best features of these lines is being able to find the one that's right for you with complete ease. On each fly line box, there are logos and text that shows the properties and features of each line. It also mentions the fishing conditions to use each line in and makes finding the best fly line for you simple and easy.
Here is a breakdown of each of the 10 variations of this fly line and a description to help you choose the best line for your requirements.
Feather Down Floater
Front welded loop, olive green in colour.
Presentation Taper, High Buoyancy Float
A great choice for river or stillwater fishing. Ideal for tricky situations where optimum stealth is required in order to fool wary fish feeding on or near the surface.
Front welded loop, white in colour.
Distance Taper, Super High Floating.
Ideal for fishing from a drifting boat or on the bank where punching a line into a headwind is required. Powering out a full line in order to get your fly exactly where you want it.
Front welded loop, pastel orange in colour.
Distance Taper, Super High Floating with a 5ft tip section which sinks at 1.5in per second.
This line crosses the floater-sinking line divide, offering great control from boat or bank. Ideal for when you need that slight anchor to bed the flies down under the water's surface, exceptional for all your slow-nymphing needs.
Front welded loop, pastel blue in colour.
Distance Taper, Super High Floating with a 10ft tip section which sinks at 1.5in per second.
A longer, sinking tip section allows the flies to fish at a different angle. Ideal for fishing larger lures with a fast retrieve near the surface or getting those nymphs down deeper, where 'feel' is the key to success.
Front welded loop, pale green in colour.
Distance Taper, Super Slow Sink Rate 0.75 to 1inch per second.
This has the ability to hold your flies in the zone for far longer due to its very slow sink rate. Ideal for presenting your flies with maximum control, in that 'critical zone', the top few feet of water where most of the trout's feeding takes place.
Front welded loop, clear in colour.
Distance Taper, Intermediate Sink Rate 1.5inches a second.
A superb all-rounder, this line has the ability to enhance your catch rate on all manner of stillwater fishing situations. Idea for fishing with all manners of lures from un-weighted to heavily weighted ones, this line offers that 'level plane' presentation that most fish find irresistible.
Front welded loop, green in colour.
Distance Taper, Medium Sink Rate 3 inches per second.
This is the perfect small stillwater sinking line, which will work extremely well when it comes to fishing everything from nymphs to lures. Ideal choice for fishing teams of flies through the water column. Use a fast retrieve for the surface layers and slow steady figure of eight for deeper work.
Front welded loop, brown in colour.
Distance Taper, Fast Sink Rate 5inches per second.
This is a line that’s tuned to fishing large individual lures or even teams of flies at depth with very little effort. Ideal for early season and in the heat of summer when the trout are loathe to come up near the surface of the water. The ultimate line for pulling apart bright lures, deeper in the cool depths.
Front welded loop, grey in colour.
Distance Taper, Fast Sink Rate 7 inches per second.
For reservoir the angler – and anyone who has access to deep water. Ideal for when you need to get the flies deep down near the lake bed fast. This is the fly line for fishing vertical buzzers straight up and down or boobies just off the bottom.
Olive green and white in colour.
Ultra Delicate Taper, Super Thin Running Line.
The ultimate fly line for all manner of river fishing applications where delicacy and finesse are required. Ideal for delivering small weighted nymphs or dry flies with pin-point accuracy to fish in low clear water.
