While we tend to get totally obsessed with rod design, fishing affords many opportunities to flex your engineering muscles. For example, it's possible to fine-tune a vehicle to the point where it is a worthy hauler of a rod as masterfully engineered as the Imperial® fly rod. Handcrafted at our factory in Park Falls, Wisconsin, its dynamic blend of two graphite materials provides a lightweight and fast-action rod built for a variety of fishing environments. In a variety of locales, of course.
