The Wade Rod Company

Freestone 9' 5WT

The 9' 5WT fly rod is widely considered to be the best size/weight combination for an all-around trout fishing rod. We decided to crank up the vanilla ice cream approach and build the best all-around rod on the market. Based on the same blank as our popular Nymphster, the Freestone has an incredible balance of strength to handle streamers, sensitivity for nymphing and touch for precisely casting dry flies to rising trout. Weighing only 80 grams, its a rod that you can cast all day with room for more.
