Still 9' #6

This is one of our quicker actions that generates high line speeds and pin sharp loops to penetrate stubborn breezes.  A popular rod for those who look to a light line approach on stillwaters though equally at home of broad rivers, especially where larger flies are required, or there’s a need to battle gale force conditions.

- 4 piece / 73 cm sections
- 79 cm tube                                                     


Still 9'6" #6

A compromise for those who split their time between boat or bank.  This model has sufficient reach to dabble flies when loch style drifting, yet possesses the require authority to cope with headwinds for venturing around lake margins.  Look no further if the light line approach appeals to you.

- Rod weight - 96 grams
- 4 piece / 76.5 cm sections
- 83 cm tube                                                     


Still 10' #6

This is the perfect rod when going afloat, especially where a degree of finesse is required.  Ideally suited for working wet flies through wave tops and dibbling them close to a drifting boat.  Equally at home for short to medium range nymph or dry fly fishing where quick and clean casts are needed to target moving fish.

- Rod weight - 99 grams
- 4 piece / 81 cm sections
- 85 cm tube                                                     


Still 10' #7

The powerful lower section gives this 10 footer enough backbone to cast long lines from bank or boat.  A blank that’s capable of handling a floating line when dry fly fishing subtleties are in order, yet is able to cope with the arduous task of heaving fast sinking lines to and fro and setting the hook on fish holding deep down.
