The Marksman is the ultimate rod for running water. It combines perfectly with light lines to give constant control in tight, demanding situations. Fast to medium recovery blanks allow tight loops and the essential casting accuracy that stream or river fishing requires. The superb Marksman action cushions light tippets yet gives plenty of power when needed. This is our favourite solution to challenging rivers. Ultra-smooth, medium fast blanks for great short to mid-range line control.

The Marksman Drifter Rod is a specialist, long length, light line rod with an exceptionally smooth and friendly action. An ideal rod to fish lough-style with small flies for wild fish. You can dibble or you can put out a longer line. Also good for light float tube work and ideal if you want that little bit more length for Czech nymphing. The rod comes with optional extension handles, so you can you can use either a short or long fighting butt - yet if neither is needed, simply replace with the nickel-silver screw in the end cap. A versatile rod that brings a new dimension to the Marksman range.
