The rod for the serious technical trout fisherman.
The Emerger blanks are rolled with a blend of low and medium modulus graphite to produce an ultra-smooth casting rod with incredible line feel. These rods are reminiscent of some of the early graphite rods produced before the modulus race and “casting pond hero” phase took off, but with an advanced resin system and a unique material layup that reduces weight and enhances sensitivity. The Emerger is light in the hand, quick loading, and excels at precise casts and perfect presentations at real fishing distances. While it’s certainly capable of casting further, the Emerger is magical in the 15-60 foot range. The Emerger is the ultimate trout fishing tool in the hands of an experienced angler.
The Emerger uses the internal or spigot version of the McFarland Transition Ferrule and a classic unsanded natural finish blank for a timeless old school look. Like all McFarland rods, the Emerger features unmatched finish work and the finest components including our own reel seat design with highly figured wood inserts, genuine Snake Brand guides, and cork work that is far superior to any mass produced rod.
