Lamson Fly Rod Casting

Casting Is Believing. Guaranteed.

ULA Force + Purist Reading Casting Is Believing. Guaranteed. 4 minutes

As we do for reels, Lamson now does for rods.  In 1995 when we dropped our first reel, the ULA design turned some heads.  Flash forward almost 30 years and we have added rods to the mix. 

We see the opportunity to improve designs in fly rods and you can't really have one without the other.  Sorry to our Tenkara buddies!

We took our experience in reels and started from the bottom up.  Our reels attach to a rod, but the way it's done hasn't really been improved.  Lockdown Reel Seats eliminate any wobble between the reel and rod.  

In addition to that we use 4 principles to help guide our design.  Action, components, finish and aesthetic.  This helped us design the rods you see today and those that are still in the lab.

Purist - Super accurate with a smooth action and reserve power.  Being lucky enough to have a spring creek in our area this rod was an almost selfish design.  We wanted a rod that was purpose built to excel on these technical waters.  


With minimal fly line out and a 17’ leader you can still deliver the fly.  The 2-piece design is lightweight, with a soft tip to protect your leader but that doesn't make it a slouch to cast.  When stealth is called for and you have to lay a bigger cast, this rod still has you covered.  


Cobalt -  Hyper fast blank designed to generate blistering line speed.  Take wind out of the equation and cover water with the bully of our rod line up.  When it's all on the line and you need to reposition quickly, count on this rod picking up 70’ of fly line and blasting it back out there at your new target.  


The action and back bone will help you maintain pressure on a fish so it won't come unbuttoned.  It is decked out in saltwater safe components and has a matte sky gray finish to keep from spooking fish.  


Velocity -  We loved the Cobalt so much that we mellowed it out (just a bit) to be fished on bigger western rivers near us.  Not unlike its big brother, this rod is designed to make long casts and ignore the wind.  Take control over the line and make quick, solid hook sets with power to control fish even in heavy water.  


Dry dropper rigs, bobbers, and streamers are all welcome here.  This rod quickly became a guide favorite and found its way into fleets across the country.  It can do whatever you ask and be pushed even further.  


Radius - Simply put this is a fun and lively fishing tool.  It generates great line speed and allows you to shape those pretty loops.  Whether you are fishing close or at distance you have complete control over the line.  


The action falls in between Purist and Velocity making a do-it-all rod.  You can head over to your favorite river in the morning to throw dries, and on your way home make a pit stop at that golf course pond (don't get caught) to throw closures for bass.  

If you have liked your Lamson reel, we are so confident you will love these rods we rolled out this new guarantee.  Pick a rod, hit the water and return it for a full refund before 30-days if you aren't satisfied.   

We will be here if you need help with a return but its a safe bet you'll be too busy casting your next favorite rod.
