Who is looking for a very fast rod that builds up such a fast line speed even against the wind, has now reached the end of his search. The ultra-fast, but by no means feelless blank is based on Lamson's saltwater flagship, the Cobalt fly rod, which is also very fast.
The Waterworks-Lamson Velocity single-handed fly rod is, the freshwater version of the Cobalt. A fly rod that has a really fast tip action with a quick recovery. The super fast rod has enough feel in the mid-range that the power of the loaded rod can be felt all the way in the hand. Due to the enormous power and the speed of the blank, incredibly tight and pointed loops are possible with the Velocitiy, which provide an impressive line speed, and that even against the wind.
The powerful dark blank convinces but not only with its casting distances, also the processing can be seen. The Velocity's guide rings in a glossy black fit the rod like a glove. In addition, the rings are not only very chic, the titanium frames and of course the silicon carbide inserts provide a corrosion-resistant, strong guide.
The fly rod's reel seat is also both an eye-catcher and a thoughtful feature. The #4 to #6 rod class inserts are made of a very sturdy and handsome zebra wood, while the #7- #8 class insert is made of a black anodized aluminum to match the rings. The special thing about the roll holders, however, is not the look, but the ingenious shape. The curvature of the insert is completed with two machine-made rails, which serve as a straight end and thus as a support surface for the edges of a roller foot. This eliminates the possibility of the reel tipping or rotating and allows it to be tightened bombproof.
In short, the Waterworks Lamson Velocitiy is a very fast fly rod that builds up high line speeds even against the wind and brings them to maximum distances. Thanks to the #4 to #8 line classes, you can enjoy the casting machine both when dry fly fishing at long distances and when streamer at sea or on the coast!

Waterworks is immediately associated by most fly fishermen with the lightweight, reliable reels. Yet the origin of Waterkworks lies in a small, innovative tool. In 1996, Waterworks was founded by two anglers and product designers because they found a better solution to remove the fly from the fish's mouth faster and more gently. Named after their hometown in Idaho, the first Waterworks product, the Ketchum Release Tool, was launched in 1996.
Even before Waterworks was founded, product designers were working with high-quality components. Ryan Harrison honed his skills and knowledge in high-performance cycling, for example. Among other things, Harrison developed suspension technology for Cannondale mountain bikes, so he was already familiar with wheels in the frame.
It was only logical that the founders turned to fly reels after the release tool. Because fly reels were heavy, overly complex and unreliable at the time, so there was work to be done here. With the question in mind of what the perfect fly reel looks like, the ULA was born and represents the foundation of today's high quality fly reels. Together with Lamson, the fly reels, rods and accessories, now enjoy more than two decades of passion, innovation and solid engineering - with no end in sight.
