Tackle week 2016: Best new fly rods, reels, lines and wading gear

2016’s best new fly tackle 

The year’s best new fly tackle blends innovation, tradition and value

With both exciting innovations and product reboots, anglers will have plenty to choose from when they head to the fly shop this year. Here’s my favourite new fly tackle of 2016.

Best Rod



Although today’s trend is toward faster rods, many anglers prefer a softer action. Developed using Sage’s Konnetic Technology, the Mod is a moderate-action rod providing accurate presentation with a delicate touch—perfect for small and medium-sized streams. The rods are nine feet long and are available in line weights 2 to 6. There are also two 13-foot Spey models for 6 and 7 weight lines.
