I learned to fly cast in 1960 using fiberglass rods, which is why I was why I purchased this rod when I retired and had time to resume my childhood pastime. People raved about fiberglass rods during the era (late 50's and early 60's) when they first came out and for good reasons. Unlike their bamboo predecessors, fiberglass rods never wear out. I have one my grandpa gave to me in 1960 and it still casts with the same energy as it did when I first got it. The Eagle Claw fly rods are cheap in price, but not cheap in performance. My first fly rod from 1960 cost $35, which translated into about 40 hours of working wages. My recently purchased Eagle Claw cost about 3 hours in today's working wages. And how well it casts! Fiberglass rods are quick action rods, which means you need to feel the rod "load" on the back cast before transitioning to the forward cast. Contrary to classical instruction on fly casting techniques, I enhance the "load" phase with a flick of the wrist. The rod's bend nearly doubles and immediately releases all that stored energy when I transition to the forward cast. All I have to do I look at my target and the line carries the fly right where I want it. And you won't miss setting the hook on many fish. One quick wrist flick and in a fraction of a second you have a battle when an aggressive trout. You can spend $700 on a slow action graphite rod and tell yourself how great it is to justify such an expensive purchase, or you can spend about $30 on an Eagle Claw and probably have even more fun. After all, a broken cheap rod (I've never broken a rod in my life) is easy to replace, so you can take some risks. As an added bonus, your wife will readily appreciate your financial astuteness. Oh, one more thing: these rods are yellow, which makes them look like bamboo rods. From a distance few could tell the difference. See? You can look like the fishing elite without having to spend like the fishing elite. Happy angling!

My kids got me this rod for my birthday and I have tried it out on several trout streams. It is deadly accurate in typical small stream situations. It will load with only 5' of leader and a beadhead nymph, and casts into tiny pockets 20' away with precision. (Don't think I've fished it much farther.) I've caught loads and had no qualms crawling through the rhododendrons with the rod. [Though now that I see it's unavailable, maybe I will hesitate next time.] I'm using 5 wt DT line and a click-and-pawl reel, which feel right. The 5 stars are for the extreme value in the product. Amazon does have it mislabled, as another buyer noted: rod clearly says 4/5 weight, not 3/4, but I knew that from research before I had mine. The color is fun. It's a two piece, so backpacking it takes a little thought. Is a $645 glass rod better? I can only assume so and dream, but could it be 25 times better? Doubtful.

I'm exceedingly happy with this for the price. It's hard to beat, with wonderful action and a nice look. The workmanship is sub par, but it fishes like a high-dollar rod. I was looking for a 3 weight, 6' 6", and I'm pretty happy with this 3/4. I actually expected it to be a 4/5, since so many other reviewers mentioned that it was mislabeled--but mine says a 3/4 on the rod shaft, and casts 3 weight wonderfully. It's very accurate at short distances. Fishes as well as any high-dollar rod.

I bought this rod solely for panfishing since my regular 5wt rod was jacking every panfish out of the water when I set the hook. I wanted something lighter to "play" them more. The rod came to me as a 3/4wt, which is what I wanted. I was surprised with how handsome it looked for the price.

I paired the rod with the Crystal River Cahill Reel, advertised on Amazon for around $12. I wish it was "prettier" but the reel did the trick nicely, not too heavy or too "clicky" sounding for me. I added a Scientific Angler's 4wt double taper line I purchased via Amazon too (a 4wt line on a whippy fiberglass 3wt will give the line some extra oomph to cast the fly out farther to where you want it). So I guess this is my "Amazon Rod".

I took the rod out to the pond to try it out and immediately loved it. There was a light wind but that didn't stop the casting. I spent the afternoon reeling in hand-sized panfish with no problem whatsoever. I could detect the strikes really well and have nice play while I was bringing them it. The only thing I wish is that Eagle Claw made an even lighter rod to make those smaller fish feel like whales!

I have been fly fishing on and off for about 15 years now, mostly piddling around ponds for bream. Over the past couple of years, however, I have been using a fly rod almost exclusively for all of my fishing. I am what I would consider and intermediate when it comes to my level of proficiency. So, take that into consideration as you read through my observations on this rod.

This Eagle Claw Featherlight 3/4 weight fly rod is an absolutely amazing bargain. I have yet to fish it, but have done a good bit of dry casting in the yard. I can hardly put it down! As compared to the graphite rods that I have been fishing my whole life, it has a much slower action. I would call it medium slow. It has a little graphite in the rod, per the manufacturer, so it is not entirely made of fiberglass. This does give the rod more backbone when comparing it to other fiberglass rods, but not so much as to make anywhere near as stiff as a graphite rod. The inscription on the rod itself states 'parabolic action'. That would about explain it. There is quite a bit of flex in the tip and the butt of the rod, with less in the middle, where the 2 sections join. This rod just begs to be cast!

The wraps don't have the quality in craftsmanship that you will see on a higher end rod, and the epoxy work is the same. They aren't bad- just not as finely wrapped and there is more of a 'glob' of epoxy than you would see on a TFO or Orvis. I love the bright yellow blank, and the gold wraps. It is gaudy to the point that it's pretty. The reel seat is made of cherry and aluminum. The cork grip has a nice 2 tone look to it, and there is some fill spots in all 5 of these that I have purchased. It won't win any awards for the finest cork grip on the market, but at this price, that point is moot.
