New Offerings from Hardy Fly Fishing

Hardy Ultralite X Rod

Designed and crafted to excel even in extreme conditions, the Ultralite X allows you to gain more casting distance and handle difficult-to-throw flies no matter the weather. Significantly faster than the standard Hardy Ultralite, the Ultralite X is the racecar of the rod rack. Sintrix NSX combined with a greater percentage of high-modulus carbon fiber give this rod a higher recovery rate so you can drive tight loops and throw articulated patterns with ease.  The more powerful butt section allows you to lift deeply sunk lines, pressure large fish away from structure and handle specialized fly lines with more aggressive tapers than the average rod. Available in a variety of sizes and lengths.

Hardy Brothers 150th Anniversary Reel

In celebration of Hardy’s 150th Anniversary, the Hardy Brothers 150th Anniversary reel is a limited-edition offering with a nod to the perfection of the past.  Holding true to what many aficionados believe to be the pinnacle of the lightweight series, this recreation of the 1972 version features the coveted two screw line guard design and is offered with commemorative engraving to celebrate the milestone in the history of the world’s most iconic fishing tackle brand. This commemorative reel will only be sold through December of 2022 and is a must-have for any Hardy collector.

Hardy Ultralite NSX Double-Handed Fly Rod

The old saying, “two hands are better than one” could have been invented for the Salmon and Steelhead angler, but there’s never been more ways to catch fish with a two-handed set-up than today. No doubt anglers are discovering the advantages of the “long rod” like never before. The ability to cast heavy, wind-resistant flies for great distances with ease, and more importantly, control them when they reach the target, has opened up new possibilities.  The new, comprehensive range of Ultralite two-handed rods bring increased levels of feel, in-hand balance, and all-important fish fighting power when you need it most.  This rod family is available in sizes from 3 through 12 and lengths 10’6” through 16’.

Hardy Ultralite NSX SR Fly Rod

There is nothing like fishing small rivers for wild trout.  The Ultralite NSX SR fly rods were created for such rivers.  As an addition to the award-winning Ultralite range of Hardy rods, these small river rods are made with Hardy Sintrix NSX material and make for the perfect mix of a crisp rod that protects light tippets. Their forgiving, easy loading action allows for the accuracy and control you need in a small river or stream. The new range includes a 6-piece packing rod option making it easy to travel with and pack for those off-trail expeditions to high mountain streams.  Available in sizes 2 through 5 wt.
