description: Very nice rod from Australian rod builder Nick A. Taransky. The first fast dry fly action rod in a longer 8ft 3wt 3/2 configuration I have cast, just amazing! The Monaro Series represents Nick's Finest rod. These rods are built from a single culm of bamboo with mirror matched tips with the second tip always identified with a second wrap at the tip top. He flamed his cane rods so the cane is nice and dark in color with contrasting light color nodes and finished with traditional gloss varnish. The ferrules are over-bound with silk matching the cane color, and protected by a split cane ferrule plug. Also agate stripper guide, Snake Brand guides wrapped with Goldenrod Silk, fitted with a beautifully figured Mallee Burl wood seat with bright N/S Cap & Ring hardware and a classic Cigar shape grip. The generously swelled butt moves most of the rod action into the top half, meaning that the rod retains a progressive feel uncommon in a rod of this length. Dry fly action for presentation casting up to 40-50 feet. Nick uses hand splitting and planing on all his bamboo fly rods. I think you're going to really like these rods!
