  Hardy Gem Mk II Fly Rod



“It must have been a damned hard job to make the Gem even better,” says Alex Whitelaw, a long-term Gem user. “But they’ve done it. I never thought they would improve on the one I use but the Mark II is a lighter, better balanced rod - even though it breaks my heart to say it. The rod feels more sensitive, but is not too quick, and you still have the same sense of reliability. This rod will be there for you in a crisis, a rock-solid friend. I think that’s what the Gem has become for the thousands of people that use them over the world. A rod you can live with and swear by - and a rod that will never let you down."

Enough said. We could tell you all about the technicalities of building such a rod - the different types of carbon fiber used, the various fiber orientations and just about everything you would need to know about rods for ever more, but we guess that's our department.

Like Alex, just get on and enjoy your fishing.
