HERITAGE FLY RODS

IT'S 2015 AND WE HAVE NOT ADDED MUCH TO OUR HERITAGE ROD PAGE BECAUSE THEY ARE SELLING AS FAST AS WE WANT THEM TO, AND EVERYTHING WE HAVE SAID ABOUT THEM HAS PROVEN RIGHT.

BUT HERE'S AN ADDITION FROM OUR 2015 TRIP TO THE GASPE.                  

THE WEEK HAS BEEN GREAT WITH MORE SALMON IN THE BONAVENTURE  RIVER THAN WE HAVE SEEN IN 15 YEARS..ON THE LAST DAY MY OLDEST SON, DAVID AND I FISHED TOGETHER AND HE HAD JUST LANDED A SALMON ABOUT 15 LBS.HE WAS USING A 7WT,9-0 HERITAGE ROD WITH 8 WT FLOATING WULFF LINE..MARC; OUR GUIDE PICKD UP MY ROD WHILE DAVE AND I TALKED ABOUT THE GREAT FIGHT WITH 3 HIGH JUMPS THE SALMON HAD MADE. MARC PICKED UP MY ROD A 6WT WITH 8WT A WULLF 8WT. "AMBUSH" LINE. MARC ASK TO TRY IT AND STARTED CASTING. ON THE THIRD CAST HE WAS OUT ABOUT 70 FEET AND AS HE HAULED THE LINE BACK IN HE SAID WATCH THIS.THE RIVER WAS ABOUT 130 FEET WIDE AT THIS LOCATION AND WE WERE ON ONE SHORE. WITH TWO HAULS MARK LAID THE FLY ABOUT 5 FEET SHORT OF THE OPPOSITE SHORE. WITH A BIG SMILE MARC SAID."YOU ARE NOT GOING HOME WITH THIS ROD!" .  AT               THe   END OF THE DAY HE OWNED IT ..

The success we have had with our Heritage fly rods has everyone surprised. For 15 years without any advertising except word of mouth from the guides and pro fishermen who first bought them we receive compliments and orders from all over the world for our rods. Our rods are 50% to 75% less expensive then the highly advertised rods, yet cast and fish as well or better. The added cost of a huge  advertising program adds nothing to the quality of a rod except $$$$$.  Available at selected dealers or from Castle Arms.

  

As expected the 10-6, 7/8/9 3 pc.SWITCH ROD is a run away winner. Atlantic salmon, 
Steelhead and large Brown Trout have been landed with this rod and our new reel. We were backed ordered on both for a couple of months but now back in business.  The limited number of dealers that had this combo sold out at a little over $300 and the comments were great. "The new reel is better then the $400 reel from the West Coast we have been selling"  Our dealers in Europe are selling the combo for one third the price of the big selling rod/reel combo from Denmark and happy as a well fed puppy.

.

     We very quietly introduced these rods in February 1999 to few of our dealers  and  some well known tyers. By September we were backordered and since then the rods have been a sensation. In 2005 we are added two new rods. a 5wt,.3pc. 9-0 "EXPRESS" rod, so named by Rep. Bruce Hollowich who tested the prototype and came off the casting pool shaking his head. This is an "EXPRESS". It is not for the faint of heart. The second rod is a  12-0 4pc 6/7/8 wt spey rod. We think it's a real winner for the large trout/steelhead fishermen. Mario Poierer ,head guide a Camp Bonaventure, a one handed caster threw 80 ft of l line on his first cast. The pool was too short he said. . No maker of a quality fly rod has the confidence to offer a lifetime warranty for $15.00. We do. We don't advertise and you don't pay for advertising. We don't have paid "consultents"..and you don't pay for them. Ask a person who owns one...and there are thousands both in the USA and Europe, who have bought Heritage fly rods. In Feb.,2010 our new 10-6 3 pc switch rod with 2 butts will be available. Selling at just over $200.00(no tube or sock) it will be in short supply for awhile due to pre-production orders..but well worth the wait. 

 Fishermen such as AK. Best,  Bob Veverka,  Jack Gartside, Floyd Franke,  and a host of other well know pros in the world of fly fishing have bought our rods. We don't have any paid consultants or big advertising bills to add to the cost of a rod. Our own IM6 designed blanks, single foot guides and top grade reel seats of cork (liteweight rods) to titanium anodize aluminum on the heavy weights. From bluegills to sailfish Heritage rods have proven to be outstanding.  Bill Hunter, famous salmon tyer/fisherman takes a 4wt, 8-6 w/fighting butt to Russia for salmon. (only one built, don't ask for one)  The 7/8 wt, 9'-6" .4pc rod rod has not only gotten rave reviews on salmon/steelhead and bonefish but has landed Permit over 20#.  For around  $100 for a 3,4,5 wt 7'-0" rod  to $300 (spey rod), they out-cast and out-fish rods at 4 times the price. Ask for them at your local dealer or email us for availability and specifications. No better rod for the price and we've got the letters from shops/fishermen to back this up. Our "Windbeater rods". are 3 pc for 7/8 wt line in 10', 10-6 and 12' lengths,the last with a 2 handed grip, .are the pride of many steelhead fisherman on the West Coast and Salmon fishermen in Alaska and Canada. The Windbeater rods have been fished for salmon, steelhead, bonefish and permit with rave reviews. You can cast into a small gale with these rods and even put a 9wt line on them with great results.  Our HERITAGE Rods have a lifetime guarantee to the original owner. For $25.00, to cover handling/shipping we replace broken rods at once and very few are broken on fish. TAKE  A    LOOK At  A FEW OF THE FISH CAUGHT ON HERITAGE RODS. WE DON'T MAKE    PROMISES WE GET RESULTS.
