Hardy Marksman Fly Rod
glorious blend of functionality, design and aesthetics. The reel is
exquisite while the rod is simply faultless. How fortunate we are
nowadays to have such products in our sport made from materials to match
our needs." Jeremy Lucas (England Team Member)
The Marksman blends the most modern research with classical styling. The
key lies in the ultra smooth blanks giving medium-fast recovery. This
combination is perfect for nearly all river and light still water
situations. What Hardy has done is create an elusive blend: the Marksman is rod that
can put out tight loops yet yield gently to the pressure of a taking
fish. Hardy has added ultra-light rod rings which aid the rod's recovery,
vital for casting in the tightest situations. Even the reel seat is
exquisitely sculptured and finished in nickel-silver. With a sumptuous
finish, the Marksman is an irresistible rod that just has to be used.
There is a comprehensive range of Marksman rods - all carefully
specified to suit the tasks for which they are designed.
The 6' #2 and the 7' #3 - for supreme delicacy, when fishing small
rivers and streams.
The 8' #4 - total accuracy and control when targeting wary fish at close
to medium range.
The 9' #4 and #5 - the complete all-round river rods and perfect for
light still water work, for both dry fly and a nymph. An absolute joy to
cast, and pin point accurate!
The 10' #4 and #5 are the ultimate Czech nymphing rods that can also
