Airflo Brookie Kids Fly Rods - Updated for 2016
"Designed for Junior Anglers but Perfect for All"
The Airflo Brookie fly rod was designed with junior anglers in mind. After years of teaching kids to fly fish with rods designed for adults we've decided to change things. To start with, we slimmed down the handles to suit smaller hands, then we shortened the rods to 7'9" to reduce swing weight and wrist fatigue; and lastly we created a smooth progressive action that is easy to load and works at any distance. What's important to note is our choice to make this rod in a six weight; normally rods of this length would be rated for a #3 or #4 line, but what we wanted was a rod that was able to handle heavy nymphs, bushy dry flies and most importantly, land decent sized trout. And for the clever adults, they're going to figure out that this is a nice little rod for poking around overgrown streams and creeks.
- High density graphite mid modulus blank
- Anodised aluminium reel seats, SIC stripper guides and titanium coated single foot guides
- High quality slim cork handles with attractive rubber cork accents
- Cordura tube with cloth rod bag
We've also put together a package to go with this rod of a Brookie lightweight large arbour fly reel, an Airflo floating fly line, carry tube, backing and DVD.
What Fly Line Should I use on this Rod?
The Airflo Brookie is commonly packaged with the Airflo Velocity floating line. Alternatively, for improved performance the rod performs extremely well with either an Airflo Back Country or Airflo Elite flyline.
