With the advancements in carbon, people are now using shorter rods than ever before. Shorter double handed rods like this are becoming increasingly popular, making rods like this the go to rod for fishing salmon in medium to small sized rivers around the world. This is now a very popular rod for fishing for large sea trout in Argentina, we had this rod on test in Tierra Del Feugo this year and not only did it excel in this very challenging windy environment it landed sea trout up to 26lb perfectly.
This rod like the bigger 13’7 Atlas, has a fairly deep progressive action but importantly retaining a fast recovery. This gives you a lovely casting action and feeling down the blank even at close range casting, but at the same time giving you a reserve of power if needed for longer casting, casting sinking lines and big flies.
The Atlas rod fits comfortably into your suitcase saves you paying costly excess baggage fees from the airlines and importantly avoids the risk of your rod tube going missing in transit. .
