Keiryu Rod Co ANSEL Fixed-Line Fly Fishing Rod



Meet the “3-WEIGHT” of fixed line fly fishing. This rod is quite possibly the easiest way to catch small to medium sized fish on the fly. It’s a secret weapon for the experienced fly angler and a no-brainer for beginners. It offers the simplicity of fixed-line fishing (no reel or extra line) with a faster action that leads to easier hook setting and, therefore, more fish netting!

The Ansel is a perfect backpacking and small river / stream rod.  It delivers exceptional sensitivity and casting using 3.5 level lines, furled lines and traditional tenkara lines. For better/more versatile performance, try one of our custom hand-tied lines. Its fast action makes it superb for hitting pocket water and deep holes with nymphs. You will get positive hook sets with the Ansel, guaranteed. When the fish are rising, throw dry flies and enjoy the lightness and feel of the rod. 


Use a tenkara-style cast, a lob cast, or an orbit cast. Or make things really simple and take the rod back to the 12 o’clock position, hold the rod with your index finger pointed forward and use your wrist. Just point and shoot!
