Presented in a travel-friendly six pieces with no compromise to the signature action of the Gaelforce Destination series, the 11-foot 3-inch for #7/8 is a tactical tool designed for smaller salmon and sea-trout streams as well as the more intimate headwaters of larger salmon rivers. The rod excels with tiny hitched flies in Iceland, sparse wet flies during periods of low water on spate rivers in Scotland, Ireland, and dead-drifted dry flies for Atlantic salmon in eastern Canada. The rod tube measures a tidy 25 inches (64 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 3-inch for #7/8 casts equally well overhead with a Bomber dry fly or with micro tubes when maximum stealth is required. 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 feel when making a change of direction with sustained-anchor casts or with traditional spey casts.
