The Redington Hydrogen Trout Spey is a lightweight, two-handed trout fishing rod that is both high quality and super affordable.
The Redington Hydrogen single-handed rods made their mark in the angling world by being a lightweight, super sensitive rod. The Hydrogen Trout Spey has taken the feel of this incredible class of rods and adapted them to two-handed fishing.
The Redington Hydrogen Trout Spey is the lightest weight rod in its class; however, it is still incredibly durable as well.
I'm going to give it to you straight:This is one of the most fun rods I have ever casted. Its as light as a feather, but has no problem casting a great distance as well.
Targeting trout with two-handed fly rods has become popular across the globe because it is an effective way to present flies to fish, and cover water well. We enjoy fishing “trout spey” style rods on medium to large sized rivers where a single-handed fly rod isn’t enough. While swinging for streamers is a popular method with rods such as the Redington Hydrogen Trout Spey, they are equally as advantageous with a strike indicator and two nymphs, as well as swinging soft hackles on a greased dry line to feeding trout. You will be amazed by the control you have with the Redington Hydrogen Trout Spey when you are mending your streamers or nymphs at a long distance; the extra length of the rod coupled with the power it can generate allows you to achieve perfect drifts every time. They are a joy to cast as well; whether you are simply roll casting them or using single and double spey casts, you will be blown away by their smooth stroke.
From our backyard here in the Pacific NW to Chile or Alaska, the Hydrogen Trout Spey is a tried and true streamer fishing machine. Even swinging flies to smaller-than-average steelhead would be a hoot with this rod, and the 3 weight could handle it! It certainly didn't disappoint with strong Kenai River rainbows.
Action and components.The Redington Hydrogen Trout Spey is a lightweight yet responsive Medium-Fast Action fly rod. Due to improved rod tracking, you can cast these rods with pinpoint accuracy in any conditions. Furthermore, Zirconia stripping guides reduce freezing of your line and guides in winter conditions. Premium cork handles, and a downlocking, skeletonized reel seat finishes off the rod well.
