Medium-Fast action rods that are a wonderful match for faster water and windier conditions. Or, maybe your just looking for a faster action rod. These rods are very easy to cast due to the faster action, and they are great on just about any kind of water. I build these rods with Figured English Walnut reel seats, and Claret, Straw, and Black silk thread wraps. They are available in the following sizes and weights.

Dave, loved the video of you fishing on the McKenzie. Which of your rods were you using? I could tell from the pictures what an easy rod it was to cast, and I was a little surprised a 7 1/2 ft rod would do that well casting from a boat.
Many thanks and tight lines,
Glad you enjoyed the video. I was using one of my FreeStone Series Medium-Fast Action rods – 7 1/2 ft 5wt 2 piece. The action works well for may different situations, including from a drift boat.
