Whether you fish spring creeks, mountain brooks or upstream freestoners, The New Quill from Maxxon Outfitters is a feather-light, three-piece, 6-foot 6-inch series that packs a big punch! The Quill is a flat out blast to have in hand. Throwing double-taper or weight-forward lines, the QUILL can still deliver long casts and land fish like a pro. No need to worry about getting hung up in the brush, The Quill is a perfect choice for casting dry flies & nymphs, when longer rods are impeded by enclosed brush on tightly wooded water on small streams.
Anyone who has fished smaller water in tight brush knows, not having the room needed to properly cast can be a real problem. Having the Quill here can be a huge advantage by reducing your overhead clearance needed by 2 1/2 feet.
Fish in smaller, less-traveled streams, usually spook out of holding water easier from flashes and anything else traveling over their heads. The Quill’s shorter, and less flashy blank with darker guides, can really help keep that over-head flash down to a minimum while working your way towards a seam or pocket. Offered in a 3wt, 4wt and 5wt, the QUILL will soon to become your new backwater feather-lite favorite!
This also makes an ideal kids rod. Many small children struggle casting longer rods, a short 5 is perfect for shorter kids! Couple this with an oversized line ( Like a Cortland Trout Boss) and the rod will be easier to cast.
