GreenCaddis Ruby River Fiberglass Fly Rod

Regular Price: $149.95

Special Price $89.95

Availability: Out of stock

As someone who appreciates history and all things vintage it is refreshing to see the reemergence of some classic styled rods in the midst of constantly evolving technologies to keep customers forking out $500 on new fly rods. When I made the decision to enter the already crowded and oversaturated fly rod market I knew I wanted to introduce an affordable fly rod that has a classic look and smooth action that is such a joy to cast it reminds us of what fly fishing is all about. Make no mistake; the Ruby River while affordable is an extremely well made fly rod which includes Pacific Bay titanium coated single foot guides, AAA half well cork handle with compressed cork ring accents on each end. With a beautiful natural wood reel seat, transparent red finish, burgundy wraps with silver accents I feel this rod is as aesthetically pleasing as it is functional. The Ruby River is available in a 6’7” 3wt and a 7’8” 4wt. Both are four piece rods which come with a cotton rod cloth.

good value for the money
I rec'd a 3wt in very good time. It's a neat little rod, just right for some of the trout streeams that I fish. I will also use it on panfish. I like short fly rods and this one
is a dandy.

Awesome small stream rod!!!
I was looking for an affordable rod, for fishing some of the tighter small streams out here in Colorado. Heard about the rod through the "Fiberglass Manifesto". Went ahead and ordered the 7' 8" 4 weight. Really having fun catching little Brookies and Cutties on this rod! Worth every penny. I paired it up with my old Pfleuger Medalist reel. Awesome rod for the money. Love the slower fiberglass action!!!

love this rod
was better than i thought and half the price of comparable glass rods,i have fished older glass rods and was not a fan so i sold them to some collectors and bought this one.i am primarily a warm water angler.caught a decent blue gill on my first cast.my casting is not a thing of beauty ,this rod tightened up my loops and does everything i bought it for.i have a similar graphite i wont name,not junk, 3 wt and like this much more.hoping give this rod a good workout this summer.

I own many expensive rods and build several, however, this rod is an outstanding product that anyone interested in a fiberglass fly rod should try.

I am so very pleased!!
I received my Ruby River Fiberglass Rod last week and it completely exceeded my expectations. The reel seat, cork grip, and rod windings are spectacular and, best of all, it casts like a dream from the past.!! Reminds me of my old Fenwick and Shakespeare rods from the60's, but much, much better, and it still has that unmistakable "fiberglass" feel.!!

Magnificent value!
The rod is all I could have hoped for and more. I love the slow deliberate full flex action. My fishing doesn't require 60+ foot casts, but it does require protection for fine 6x and 7x tippets. I think I'm in love!!

Fiberglas of good quality
Hi there,

Many thanks for the rod. I’ve got a rod on Saturday morning and went the same evening for fishing.
Beautiful rod, fast loading and in a drill sensitive.
Really a good one for this price.

Best regards

Amazing quality and performance
My Ruby River arrived today and I immediately took it out to start beating the grass to a fare thee well. This is exactly the rod I wanted to transport me back to my very first fly outfit, a Wright and McGill 6.5 ft. hitched to a Pflueger Medalist. Like almost every other fly fisher I know, I got caught up in the power craze and now that I'm on the last cog of the 60 decade, I yearn for the soft grace and elegance of my youth. I didn't quite know what to expect since the cheapest glass rod I could find anywhere was $250 but the Ruby River is beautifully finished and casts just like I had hoped. What fun it will be on small stream trout in Montana.

This is a wonderful rod
This is a wonderful rod and excellent for taking on 4wheeler or motorcycle trips as well as backpacking. I personally prefer a 9' fly rod and would be on the list for one if ever it was offered!!!!!!
