Presented in a travel-friendly six pieces with no compromise to the signature action of the Gaelforce Destination series, the 11-foot 9-inch for #8/9 responds to multiple requests for a tactical rod for small- to medium-sized salmon and sea-trout streams. The 11-foot 9-inch length allows maximum maneuverability beneath overhanging canopy and reduces the profile of the angler on smaller rivers in low water. The Grimsa in Iceland, Sectors D and E of the Bonaventure on Quebec’s Gaspé Peninsula, or the upper reaches of the Copper River in British Columbia are ideal venues for the Gaelforce Destination 11-foot 9-inch for #8/9. The rod tube measures a tidy 26 inches (66 centimeters) for maximum portability to exotic destinations for salmon, sea-trout and steelhead fishing.
Utilizing the finest new graphite materials in the construction of the blank, the Gaelforce Destination 11-foot 9-inch for #8/9 casts equally well overhead from a boat, allowing the angler to fish a short line with ultimate precision. The strong tip and the deep progressive action—the signature flex of the Destination series—eliminate side deflection of the tip when lifting line from the water and provide maximum feedback when making a change of direction with sustained-anchor casts or with traditional spey casts.
