The Discovery  NANO Fly Rod "THE BIGGEST DEVELOPMENT SINCE CARBON FIBRES  ITSELF"  This is The MOTHER of all  6/7 weights

Armed with  this versatile  6/7-weight fly rod you will feel at home in both fresh and to a whole host of species, this rod will take you just about anywhere.  Weighing in at a feathery 100gms the combination of lightweight,sensitivity,and strength in this 5/6 weight package is something you just have to cast to believe.this rod is so light – even the scrawniest arms will be able to launch big flies through heavy winds all day long
Discovery NANO Rod is smooth and precise with an intentionally forgiving ‘sweet spot’ that complements widely diverse casting styles,This helps the angler make a full range of close-in and long distance casts that hit the mark with equal ease. Being able to feel exactly what the line is doing through all stages of the cast gives anglers ultimate control so they can make the micro-adjustments needed to place the fly precisely where it’s wanted

The Discovery NANO Fly fishing rods are the best rods we have ever produced. They are beautifully balanced, lightweight with  crisp clean actions that provide both superb casting and fish playing characteristics. They are also phenomenally strong thanks to the revolutionary nature of the new  Silica NANO material. carbon fibre held together with a resin impregnated with silica nano spheres. This technology is relativly new and proven it produces a material that is significantly stronger and  lighter than traditional carbon fibre.

Our Discovery NANO Fly Rods are one of the first fly rods to take advantage of the ground breaking NANO technology in Australia,the most recent evolution in fly rod innovation, uses new materials combined with pioneering manufacturing methods and processes. This technology incorporates an optimized ratio of  proprietary resin to  high modulus grade carbon fiber.
NANO  technology is never more appreciated than when traveling with a single fly rod - the improved impact resistance and strength helps ensure you have a tool that will withstand the worst possible punishment.

Carbon fibres are just that, long thin lightweight strands of carbon that need to be converted into a cloth in order to turn them into a fishing rod.
When making fly rods, each long strand of carbon fibre needs to be held together with a reinforced resin system that provide strength and impact resistance.
This carbon cloth is then wrapped around a mandrel to form the blank and subsequently baked at high temperature, melting the resin to create a full strength fishing rod.

What is Carbon Nanotube Technology?
Applying Carbon Nanotube, or CNT technology creates a stronger resin distribution system, this helps eliminate any weakness in the blank to create rods with significantly increased strength and improved impact resistance, without adding any significant weight to the blank.
The resulting rods are light, smooth and ultra strong - a 60% increase in flexural strength and a 30% increase to impact resistance - without any effect on the superb casting performance you come to expect from all our fly rods
Because  material is stronger, and less material is required and thus a rod can be lighter than an equivalent carbon fibre model. Weight savings of upto 30% are possible.There are two key advantages provided by silica nano spheres. First is the even distribution of the nano spheres throughout the resin providing equality of strength throughout the blank leading to crisp and clean rod actions. The second advantage is that silica nano spheres resist compression forces better than any other known material. This results in a fishing rod that is at least 60% stronger than a standard carbon fibre rod without interfering with the action. The improved compression characteristic also greatly improves impact resistance and durability.

The latest construction methods includes a process that precisely aligns and positions carbon fiber materials to exacting tolerances for the greatest blank strength, delivering extremely efficient energy transfer throughout the shaft. Using  state of the art high Compression Molding process, carbon fibers are compacted for optimum density and precise alignment while simultaneously fusing the 30% percent lighter all-carbon fiber inner core.

Discovery NANO  rod becomes a true extension of the angler’s arm, It offers a more fluid transmission of energy from the arm to the fly. The eye sees the cast it wants to make and is translated to the hand through the rod instantaneously.”
The fast-action Discovery NANO rod family is intended for all fishing conditions thanks to a list of high-end features.

9ft NANO IM12 T46 A-HELIX #6/7

Hi Mike ,super happy with my new Nano speed rod and new reel and the flies are terrific ???? went to Millbrook and caught 8 the 2 biggest rainbows 4lbs plus and rod and reel handled like a dream. Drag was perfect and played a huge brown for over 10 minuet's and would have been mine except for the large weed bed ???? The rod is a 6/7 so is its true wt a 6 and a half or a 7, or what ? Thanks again Martyn

My Wonderful New A-HELIX Fly Rod

I have been wanting to update my fly rod for a few years now but my old rod was a favorite of mine. Decided to bite the bullet and purchase the latest in technology and I'm glad that I did. Purchased a 6/7wt Nano A Helix Fly Rod from Trout Flies and headed off to a local Lake to give it a go. Very Light, effortless to cast and fantastic to use all day. Efforts were rewarded, I christened the rod with a beautiful 4lb Brown Trout. Now my new fly rod is one of my favorite things. Many Thanks to Mike and his Team at Trout Flies. Bigman - Victoria.
