An HT6 off to Tasmania last weekend. A great all-round trout rod. We have quite a few of these in Tassie of course. For most of my previous trip I fished the HT4, but there were certainly times when the HT6 was the better option. Particularly for taking shots in strong crosswinds as I remember.

Remember, all of our sales come with a Zoom session where we can have an online meet and cast together. And for the current 666 rod sales cycle you can win an all expenses fly fishing trip with us.

HT8 to Straylia

Nice to see Torzites on an HT8. Definitely I think this would make a difference here for the quick Snakehead shots. And we are going to find out because I’m hoping that Peter brings this rod over next month to play!

Remember every HT comes with a 1HR Zoom Cast session. And you enter a 1 in 666 chance of winning an all expenses paid SW fly fishing trip with me.

More details on this and all of our rods can be found here . Or you can email me on or WhatsApp +60198549552

Cheers, Paul

HT4 to Tas

I don’t like to say I have a favourite, but if I did have one, then this would be it! I think it’s right at the limits of what is possible to accomplish in a carbon 9’ 4WT. But that’s me 🙂


Really nice custom work as usual from our master craftsman Lee. (Lee has a beard too by the way; you would expect that from us. His is more “Lord of the Rings”). I like the red trims (rod, not Lee, although actually…).

This rod has been well on its way for some time actually, and I’m looking forward to meeting Jason for a Zoom Casting meet. That’s always fun! And if life goes to plan then Ashly and I should be back in Tassie again next January.

And let me tell you, the HT4 is my goto Trout Rod for just about everything, especially down there!

We are flat out at the moment. I have three more exciting recent rod builds to post here, and Lee is in a rod building frenzy. That’s how we like it.

More on the HT4 here. Email me on or WhatsApp me on +60198549552 for any questions you may have, or to quickly place an order.
