The TROUT SPEY G5 is built to cover the range of spey applications on your favorite piece of trout water. Whether you’re swinging soft hackles on floating lines during late evening hatches or throwing streamers on Skagit heads when the weather cools and there are fewer insects around, the high-performance blank and trout spey-specific action of the G5 will do the job with ease—no back cast or double-haul required. Just lift, set, and fire, and let the TROUT SPEY G5 do its thing. Finding new solutions to old problems has never been more fun.

SWINGING FLIES FOR TROUT
The down-and-across presentation is an incredibly effective way to target trout, and there’s no more efficient way to fish that technique than with a two-handed rod. Designed with a full-sized-spey rod feel and action, slimmed down to an appropriate size for your favorite trout water, the TROUT SPEY G5 is ready to change your swing game whether you’re throwing small soft hackles or big streamers.
TAILORED TO THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS IN LINES
With the “Spey Craze” in full “swing”, the recent advancement in Spey lines has called for an upgrade in two-handed rod performance. The TROUT SPEY G5 follows suit and is designed to handle all of today’s modern Skagit & Scandi heads, and appropriate sinking tips and leaders.
EASE OF CASTING STREAMERS
Throwing streamers all day with a single-hand rod can be particularly fatiguing on the shoulder. The TROUT SPEY G5 eliminates this fatigue completely when paired with an appropriate Skagit head and two-handed cast. Streamer water that once tuckered you out is now one of your favorite playgrounds.
Enhanced blank construction featuring a proprietary graphite hoop combined with minimal glass scrim. The result is a lighter, more responsive and livelier rod blank with a narrower shaft. The lightness and responsiveness of Generation 5 technology lets you feel the line load for optimized casting control, and enables us to continue designing new rod applications that are leaders in their class
