Moonshine Rod Co. The Drifter Series Fly Fishing Rod
Our mission is simple… to imagine, create, and distribute unique, well-built fly fishing rods that real people can afford. We craft our rods in hopes they inspire a revival… a return to the pure and simple spirit of adventure… moments that stir the soul. Our distinctive style is certainly derived from the classics; from our custom reel seats turned from strikingly grained burl woods, to our hand turned cork grips, and high performance rod blanks, every one of our rods whispers the beginning of a unique story – one that’s bound to be epic.
Imagine a rod that looks like nothing you’ve never seen on the rack at your local fly shop. Now imagine that rod having some of the best action and sensitivity you’ve ever felt, even in upscale rod brands. Now imagine anodized copper hardware from reel seat to tip, a vintage color scheme, and exquisite Burl wood double locking reel seats. Finally, imagine being able to actually afford this rod without having to pull out a second mortgage on your home.
The best way we can explain it without it being in your hands is:
- TWO Tip Sections!
- Hard Canvas 5 Compartment Fly Rod Tube with Embroidered Moonshine Logo.
- Hand Turned Spalted Burl that has been dyed to reveal the exquisite graining in the wood.
- Copper anodized Hardware, from the reel seat to the tip top!
- High grade AAA cork grips with burled ends.
Because wood is inherently inconsistent in both color and character, the reel seat may vary from the product pictures above.
The Drifter Series
from Moonshine Rods
The Drifter Series rods are unlike anything we have cast before. It is almost impossible for us to compare them to any other big name brand. We consider this to be a GOOD THING.
- Comfortable action, stiff enough to get your line shooting long distances, soft enough to where it is a true pleasure to fish.
- Roll casts, and beautiful long double hauls are in your future.
- Effortless casting ability for all skill levels.
