It is well known that the rod makers at Guideline know a thing or two about sensitive trout rods. In the past, the Norwegians have already developed many great models to successfully fish for wary trout and grayling in the rivers and lakes of Scandinavia. The team of Leif Stavmo and Christopher Rownes seamlessly builds on this expertise with the Fario Classic.
As the name "Fario" underlines, this series of state-of-the-art single-handed rods is designed for trout fishing and fits seamlessly into Guideline's successful Fario product family. The Fario Classic combines a timeless, classic look and first-class workmanship with the latest carbon fibre technologies and current possibilities in rod building. The combination is very convincing and we are sure that this rod series will inspire demanding fly fishers when fishing with dry flies, nymphs and even streamers. The medium-fast, deep action of the deep green blank allows a clean presentation over all casting distances and conveys a lot of feeling both in the cast and during the fight. Precise overhead casts are just as easy with the Fario Classic as sensitive roll or switch casts in the tightest of spaces. The line loop is very easy to control thanks to the harmonious bend. This is fun! The fine tip cushions the casts of big trout and grayling very well and allows you to present your patterns with fine leaders. You'll be ready for the professors among the salmonids!
The features of the Guideline Fario Classic include a beautiful deep green blank and decorative wraps in the same colour. The high-quality spacer made of precious wood and the chrome-plated reel seat with mayfly engraving also match this classic design. Guideline has also not skimped on the ringing and has used first-class components here. The half-well handle made of premium AAAA cork feels wonderful in the hand and develops a beautiful patina over time. In combination with a Guideline Fario fly reel and a Fario fly line, you get a top class combination that is perfectly equipped for all scenarios of modern trout fishing. And for ambitious nymph fishermen there are even two models with a length of 10ft. - another thumbs up for that!
In short: a visually very tasteful fly rod that combines the tried and tested with the modern in a very successful way and will give you a lot of pleasure on the stream and river.
