Halcyon Fly Rod Review

Halcyon Fly Rod Review

Halcyon Fly Rods by Stone Creek offer a quality fly rod built on proven IM6 blanks for an affordable price. The stripper guide is teflon lined to reduce line friction. The 8 hard chromed snake guides plus the chromed tip top put the Halcyon rods into the quality rod class according to an old test for judging fly rods.

The cork grips are a reverse wells with cutout are designed to fit the hand. Rod Blanks are finished in a nice moss green and fitted with a similar color woven graphite reel seat insert. The reel seat is an anodized aluminum window model.

The medium fast action offers a forgiving feel for casters of all levels. ( Editor Note:  This medium fast action is one I prefer for nymphing. Yet it allows a delicate presentation of a dry fly too. I have grass cast the Halcyon 5wt and 6wt fly rods. They both offer a solid feel when the line loads the rod on the backcast and the forward cast. I could lay out 70 + foot casts without any trouble. The Halcyon rod is a good second rod. Or an affordably priced rod for a beginning fly fisher. )
