Stalker LEGEND Fly Rod
Gavin Hurley describes the 25th anniversary of the Stalker Legend:
To commemorate the achievement, I wanted something special, something that reflected everything about Hurley's Fly Fishing and what the Stalker Fly Fishing range stands for, quality and value.
I wanted THE best quality range of fly rods available.
I wanted crispness to instantly pick up a line from the water, I wanted power to turn a strong fish from a snag, I wanted to feel so you could cast with your eyes closed, I wanted a finish that had a minimal reflection, I wanted fittings that were extremely light, and all using the highest quality graphite that allowed it to be THE lightest in its class.
It has taken some time, but so do all great things, and we are about to release what I think is the world’s best fly rod range.
When naming this model we couldn’t help but go back to where we started, with the best value for quality rod available in Australia and New Zealand 25 years ago, introducing the NEW Stalker Fly Fishing LEGEND 25 Year Anniversary edition.
Some facts on the NEW LEGEND…
We have used a blend of the highest quality Toray carbon, around 70%, and this is what allows the rod to feel almost inconceivably light in your hand. Now the weight is one thing, but when blended with around 30% of the highest quality Mitsubishi carbon, this is where we get the crispness, power, and strength needed in a rod that will be awesome for many years.
The No Flash/Matt Black blank simply eliminates rod flash and keeps you well hidden in all scenarios.
We used 316 stainless single leg guides to help eliminate friction by keeping the line off the blank, with a silicone insert stripping guide for maximum shootability.
The ultra-high-performance aluminium matt black reel seat weighs only 12 grams with a stunning green carbon-fibre insert made from Toray.
Comes with our Stalker guarantee and $30 replacement parts*
The bag has the reel slit to keep the parts separated even with leaving the rod and reel together.
A solid protective triangular rod tube to ensure it doesn’t roll all over the place.
