Fly rods

P4 Stealth 8'


The Stealth is pure elegance and understatement. The cloud grey wraps and the sky blue edging match the smoke reel seat beautifully.

The P4 Blank:

A small river, mayflies hatching at sunset and trout feeding on the surface. For many, a scene like this is probably the first thing that comes to mind when we hear the words fly fishing. The 8 foot long P4 is the rod for these situations. The P4 performs best in the casting range of 6 to 15 meters (20 to 50 feet). It is a medium action presentation rod that delivers relaxed casting strokes perfect for delicately painting the dry flies on the surface of a stream. But it is not restricted to dry fly fishing: we also use it for nymphs and even smaller streamers with great success. It is a truly special rod, a reward for those that deserve something special.

All our rods are hand built one at a time and endlessly customizable. Please make an inquiry on availability and on custom options before placing your order.

Reviews

“The P4? Well, I haven't been able to wipe the grin off of my face after casting it. It is difficult for me to articulate the technical capabilities of this rod. "Intuitive", "soulful", "point and shoot", are all good descriptors. I strung up a Mastery Trout WF4 on it, tied my old, hookless Hopper fly on the leader and hit targets 10" from 20'-45' on almost every cast. This might be the perfect, small stream rod, that I have been searching for. Without a doubt, the Stickman P4, 8', #4 is the finest rod of this configuration that I have ever fished or cast. Truly a "magic wand".
My take on the Stickman fly rods, is that they are everything as advertised and reviewed here and other places. Each rod model has a unique and individual design to match a specific fishing need/environment. What is consistent is the excellent craftsmanship, materials, and fit and finish of each rod. These things are beautiful, especially out in the sun. They don't try to be about looks, they are understated in their aesthetics, but are super classy nonetheless. “

“There are several great options available but in my opinion the Stickman P4 in the 8 foot 4 weight configuration is by far the winner.”

“Been out with the rod a couple of times in a small stream nearby. Just wanted to tell you that I really like the P4 and how it behaves. It’s perfect for small river fishing and feels kind of unique to me, a little different. I’m gonna use it a lot. I’m also very satisfied with the quality and handcraft. You have really succeeded in creating a very very good premium #4 8’ rod.”
