It’s good to consult your physician before starting an intense fishing program. Then you at least have a note to give your spouse and employer before heading into the backcountry for oh...about a month or two. Which should be just long enough for the healing effects of an Imperial® fly rod to take effect. Handcrafted at our factory in Park Falls, Wisconsin, its dynamic blend of two graphite materials provides a lightweight and fast-action rod built for a variety of fishing environments. Now, turn your head and cough.
