With the Hardy 4-Piece Jet DH Fly Rod, go big or go home. This strong but lithe quartet of angling allure was designed specifically to help you conquer big water and bigger fish. Sintrix 330 lets you show your finny friend who's in charge and still be able to hoist a beer at the end of the day. Long and lithe, the Jet DH has medium-fast taper and is optimized for shorter lines and shooting heads to keep your D-loops open and free. While the bend may be bigger than some of your other rods, the supple nature of the Jet gives you clear communication when tussling with a fish for over several hours. Sintrix 330 helps the Jet send the line screaming through the air, and four discrete pieces make transporting and storing the rod a reasonable endeavor. The double-handle design not only aids in controlling your cast but also offers you strength and longevity when struggling with a salmon or snarky steelhead. Fuji guides won't let your line turn into a horrific tangle, and the aluminum reel seat won't rust out if you head out on the ocean. Medium action lets you Jelly Roll or throw a Double Spey with a landing softer than many commercial flights and still have enough stiffness to withstand a few hours of being toyed with by your scaly nemesis. Booking the Alaskan fishing fantasy should be a no-brainer since you can carry the Jet DH on board in the hard, cloth-covered rod tube and safely stow it in the overhead cabin for the duration of the flight.
