Tackle Week 2020: The year’s best new fly-fishing gear

2020’s Best Fly Tackle

Best Rod


To mark 50 years of producing excellent handmade rods, Thomas & Thomas named this new rod after its fabled Paradigm, considered one of last century’s greatest dry-fly rods. Smooth casting and ultra-lightweight, with a medium-flex for subtle presentations, this new four-piece certainly lives up to the name. With its distinctive blue finish and high-end hardware, it looks great, too. Sizes range from an eight-foot two-inch 3-weight to a nine-foot 6-weight.
