When you’re casting big flies onto weed mats to trigger attacks from the bucketmouths below, you’re in for a day of spectacular strikes and big memories—maybe even a tournament title. New for 2012, the Bass II rods have been upgraded for faster line speed to carry big, bulky flies straight to their target—everything from explosive smallmouth in their river lairs, to voracious snook and tarpon stealthfully pulled from the mangroves on your kayak. The new Peacock model joins this year’s lineup, a true heavyweight ready to go toe-to-toe with giant Muskie, Pike and Peacock Bass.
The Bass II is an advanced performance rod which generates higher line speeds, provides greater accuracy and easier line pickup than its earlier generation Bass rods. The Bass II has a very smooth feel with a maximum leverage to fight aggressive predators and pull big fish from cover, perfomring the job of line pick up, back-cast, and re-delivery with no false cast usually needed. It's a perfect tool for accurately casting big, wind-resistant flies from a kayak, canoe or other small personal craft.
