This is a two piece, two tip rod with medium fast action, made 8 feet in length, it is a heavy 6 wt, and throws a 7 weight line with ease.
We developed the Antero Special, for fishing the well known Antero Reservior in the South Park of Colorado, and hour or so from Colorado Springs, and about 45 minutes from our headquarters in Salida. Antero Res. was drained, closed to fishing, then reopened in 2005. It if full of scuds, and really fat nasty Rainbows, a smattering of Cutthroats, and Browns, and the odd Splake, and Brookie. It can be a mighty windy rascal, so our days start early and end usually around noon or 1 pm. When the wind turns to come from the west, it is time to get heading to the landing to get in line for the pull-out.
This rod is made for deep indicator nymphing, and steamer tossing. It can handle the power of the mid-20 inch fish that are caught on nearly every outing. You can dress the rod up with a fancy agate stripping guide and a working cane grip, or take it in standard form with two tips, cork grip, rod bag and Aluminum tube.
Standard price for this rod is $895, and you can add a cane grip for another $150
