HT7 to NZ

This is another of Stuntman Ronan’s lineups. Where the 7 definitely outperforms the 6 is for deadly streamer bashing. But something I’ve been thinking about for a while, and I know it’s what Ronan is thinking about too, is its use for backcountry NZ trout. There is certainly a “gear change” between these two rods and in some backcountry situations I think the 7 would be a better tool for the job.

As you can see, the Stuntman favours snake rings and a spare tip. This is for when he is being lowered over the side of a cliff attached to a tow rope, leaping over to trees to slide down like a fireman or climbing high vantage points and blowing himself up in the process. You too can order such a rod if you are a daredevil fly fisherman or just nuts.

As always drop me an email on for any questions you may have!

Cheers, Paul
