Victory, McKenzie 8′ 6″ 5-Wt 3-pc Medium Action

(2 customer reviews)


Mckenzie River Taper. 8′ 6″ 5-wt, 5.4 oz. Goodwin Granger 8642 Taper.

The Granger 8642 may be the most iconic western taper bamboo fly rod in history. It is an extremely versatile taper that will handle the wind and long casts as well as mend nicely for nymphing and sling streamers flawlessly. A nice, smooth medium flex action. As John Gierach noted in Fishing Bamboo, you can’t go wrong with an 8’ 6” 5-wt bamboo fly rod.

    I bought the Mckenzie river 8′ 6″ 3pc 2tip 5wt fly rod several weeks back when it was on sale. My description of this rod can be made in one word, “awesome”!
    Other cane rod companies charge thousands for a rod of quality such as this.

    My friend & I went over this rod with a fine tooth comb to try and find a flaw or a glue joint on the entire blank, and I’m happy to say we couldn’t find any. Quality through & through! I wish I didn’t wait so long to finally purchase it.

    I’ve only lawn casted this rod so far, but it will see water very soon.

    This rod rocks. I took the Victory, McKenzie 8′ 6″ 5-Wt 3-pc Medium Action to 11 mile canyon in CO for some tailwater trout and let me tell you it did not let me down. 14 fish total 1 @ 18 inches caught on a #20 bwo. This rod dropped the bwo with precision, accuracy, and protected 6x tippet no problem. I was also tossing double nymph rigs with split shot with/without strike indicator. I was so impressed that I bought a second rod Deluxe, Deschutes 8′ 0″ 6-Wt. The price and the warranty can’t be beat. Thanks
