I woke up on last saturday morning with a thought of a new fly rod for this summer. My current fly rod for trout and salmon is quite old and I decided to grab a new one. So I called almost immediately to local Vision gear retailer and after discussion I had new Vision Cult 9′ 6″ / #8 line rod waiting in the shop. Goal was to get a fly rod which would be perfect for salmon dry fly fishing and also for trout fishing with streamers. The rod is a 4-piece medium action which is best for my casting style.

Rod finishing is great. It has dark brownish color and it has Pacific Bay guide rings. Overall feeling is that the rod has very impressive quality.

The handle is Full Wells type and the cork quality is good. Very smooth feeling. Reel seat is anodized aluminium.

Rod comes in a cordura tube.

So far I have been fishing with the rod twice and I have to say I love it! Casting is very easy and the action fits to my casting style perfectly. All my previous rods have been medium or medium-fast actions so I had no problems casting with this rod. The rod will get some good action with salmons (I Hope!) during this summer and after that we will see how it will perform.
