The 7117-4 Burkheimer is the ideal close quarters Burkie for the most demanding two hand fly fisher.
Select the Classic or Presentation grade finish on your 7117-4.Kerry Burkheimer has been slow introducing his signature two handers in lengths under 12 ft because he wanted to get it right, not simply copy what other rod builders were doing. His 7115-4 has been around for years and is a proven item. But the butt of the 7115-4 is very firm and it is difficult for most casters to feel the rod load well. This short Burkheimer two hander has the spirit and feel of longer Spey rods, with backbone to handle most steelhead and salmon in the sub twenty pound class.
We find this Burkheimer 7117-4 a truly remarkable performer, from the cast through the swing to the fight.
This rod is perfectly specialized: This is a short rod for a two hander, and one could be tempted to call it a switch rod, but we feel that it is a genuine Spey rod fine tuned to fish in places where fish are big and space for that D loop is cramped.
