description: Beautiful rod from Rod Builder Hans Schlecht of Germany. This is a 8'6" 5/6wt or model HLS Rigolther 856 3/2. Has Bamboo on bamboo ferrule system, Gold guides and tungsten stripper, Cork reel seat, Cork over brass sliding band finished off with a wood end buttcap just wonderful! Named after a special beat on a Scottish river fished long ago by a very dear friend of Hans, the Rigolther 856 series is designed for fishing at middle to long distances with excellent line control and delicate presentations. The Rigolther is an ideal rod for emergers and dry flies, and a superb choice for nymphs and streamers, especially in the heavier classes. This rod is a great big water Montana rod and will do just about everything. This rod has a wondeful Medium Fast Semi-parabolic action and is very light in the hand! The most important milestone in Han's rod building was the realisation of the integrated hexagonal bamboo ferrule called FIBH. FIBH stands for Fries Integrated Bamboo Hexaferrule.
