The Cascade Rod was designed after our desire to fish those really small, brushy creeks in the Cascade mountain range. It is an 8 foot rod and when collapsed is only 16 inches so it fits easily in backpacks. We have made the Cascade with a faster action for precision casting especially in those hard to reach spots. It is an incredibly fun rod that can handle fish quite well. In addition to its small stream applications, it is a great rod for kids because of how lightweight and compact it is. Here is a little video we made about it.
The Owyhee Rod is our big fish Tenkara rod. We created this rod out of a dire need to chase larger trout. It is the longest, heaviest, and thickest rod we make at 13 feet in length. The Owyhee is capable of landing large trout in the 20 inches + range. It is a thick rod but still manages to throw a line with precision and delicacy.
The Teton Rod is one of our all around rods. It can handle larger trout but also remains playful in smaller fishing situations. We made a little video about the rod last Fall while taking the girls out fishing some of our favorite water in East Idaho. Enjoy!

So the first thing I do to prepare for fishing in the Winter time is lower my expectations. I know that going out in the middle January I am not going to stumble upon a monster salmon fly hatch with fish rising all around me. For me, Winter fishing is more about the...
