JP Ross Muir fiberglass 7 foot 3 weight 5 piece, true medium action...
We found there was a need for a special fly rod in the market. The rod would carry the excitement of the new age fiberglass fly rods, but would also be technically advanced and have a purpose.
Glass is not nearly as advanced as carbon fiber, and also is not as diverse. However, glass does have its place in some specialized applications. One specific application is smaller stream fly fishing. No matter for Bass, Trout, or even Panfish, we feel that the action of fiberglass is perfect for these applications. There is, or was until now, a void in the offering the market yields in regards to pack-able high performance glass. So we decided to fill that niche with the MUIR.
The MUIR is a 7 foot medium action 3 weight, 7 foot glass fly rod. This is the second release of the MUIR with an updated new ERGO taper fullwells grip.
Named after John Muir, this rod is made for backpacking for wild fish. The famous writer and advocate for the United States National Parks in the late 1800's and early 1900's, Mr. Muir traveled by foot no matter where he went. He believed, and we agree, that a transcendent experience happens in the wilderness. Only by being in the woods and seeing the world from the mountain tops, can one really understand God, Nature, Themselves, and actually recharge.
This rod is made to be used and fished. This basic model features light wire chrome single foot guides.. Also included is a folding hook keeper, single foot strip guide and black double lock reel seat with ZEN TROUT engraving. The rod has a cotton bag and black on black aluminum case.
Like the Signature Series Muir, this rod does have the zen trout on the blank, but is missing the agate strip guide & align dots. However, this rod is made with the same very high quality blank, and does have beautiful accent thread wraps.
Lead time is 3 weeks or so. Each one is made to order here in the USA in our cabin workshop.
