Pike and Musky are big, toothy critters that don’t mess around, so we’ve built two rods every bit as serious. Taller cousins to our BASS II family of rods, these 9’ 10 and 11-weight rods use their added length to great advantage. Designed to maximize the inherent strength of Generation 5 technology to slide, lift and throw heavier intermediate and sink-tip lines and bulky, airresistant flies, the PIKE and MUSKY rods never back down from a fight. But, because it can take endless casts to entice these stealthy predators from their lairs, these rods are anything but bullies to cast. These surprisingly well-mannered rods are tapered with great power toward the butt to allow for quick loading, minimal false casting and to smoothly shoot the fly out toward that submerged log. Only, that’s no log.
The 1090-4 PIKE is a perfect choice for when you are looking for a tool that is comfortable to blind cast all day long and can still deliver large flies accurately with ease.
