The Two-Hearted Fly Rod is an ultralight, 2 wt., 7’6″, carbon-fiber work of art designed for targeting resident trout and panfish in streams and small rivers. It weighs in at a mere 2.8 ounces. This rod is named after my many adventures on the famed Two-Hearted River in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The rod is designed and assembled by myself. It’s a med/fast-action rod that casts nicely off the tip with accuracy. The rod has good midflex and fast recovery speeds. Despite its light weight, the rod has minimal tip-wobble with good tracking, contributing to its powerful feel for its size. I have been fly fishing for over 4 decades. I have owned and fished with dozens of different lightweight fly rods. I sincerely believe you will not find a smoother casting, sweeter action 2-weight fly rod anywhere!
The best part about the Two-Hearted? The fight! When the hook is set and the fish is on you will feel every ounce of the fish’s energy. Every head-shake, direction change and spirited run is transferred from the fish through the light-weight carbon fiber to your hand. Fighting a resident trout or panfish has never been more fun!
The rod come packaged in a cotton Brook Trout sleeve and a hand-made white pine case as shown. The case is made by myself from Michigan white pine, reclaimed from a 19th century farm house. The hinges and hardware are hand-picked to match the time-period. It’s a beautiful piece of Michigan history. The case measures 27″ long, 4″ wide, 3.5″ high and weighs 5lbs 2oz.
