The 11 foot 5 inch 8wt C.F Burkheimer Classic Two Handed rod is a phenomenal winter steelhead and salmon tool. When matched with a modern skagit head like the RIO Elite Skagit Max Power Head this rod delivers sink tips and large weighter flies with ease. If you are looking for a rod that will "launch mega" in close quarters the 8115-4 Burky is the rod.
Burkheimer Classic rods have machined anodized reel seats, chrome nanolite stripper guides, hard chrome snake guides, nickel silver winding checks and three layer cork inlays. You can count on the each one of Kerry Burkheimer's rods is hand crafted to the finest standards. Flat out these rods are designed to conquer the chrome! We recomend a 475-525 skagit style head for this rod and it's 11' 5" length suggests sink tips in the 7.5-12ft range.
