A new fly rod conceptualized by competitors, tested by competitors
It is during a discussion Cédric Maurel (FishBone ProStaff) that the idea cam out: develop a new fly rod dedicated to modern competition nymphing techniques combining length, lightness, balance and good fighting capabilities.
The new FishBone 10'7 No Line concept was born.
After working several seasons with my ProStaff team many of whom are top competitors and having spent several seasons optimising maxia and other nymphing dedicated fly rods, I spent the winter on this concept, regrouping all our knowledge together. I pushed the concept to its maximum in order to end up with the fly rod answering all the wishes a competitor might have.
The fishing conditions this spring were tough with high waters and fast currents, but this has enabled us to push the first prototypes to their limits. The first impressions were formidable: ease of cast, precise, enough fighting power, no more line tangles, and when combined with the carbon grip's sensitivity, we knew we had a winner in house!
