Lefty Kreh Finesse series rods are a combination of Lefty's 50 plus years of fly fishing experience and his desire to develop an affordable high-performing fly rod. This olive finished rod series is ideal when using small flies and fine tippets on meadow streams, limestone creeks and other tight places. The Finesse series is made of IM6 graphite with skillfully placed stainless steel snake guides allowing for a smooth and effortless cast by easily turning over long leaders. With a cork handle and fine-looking rosewood inserts, these rods are perfect when a finicky fish isn't your only obstacle.

This rod has wonderful balance and tremendous power for short to medium range casts. If you prefer a shorter rod (as I do), this is the way to go.

I purchased a 2 wt. 7'3" and it's perfect for small stream fishing. Med. fast fast rod with a nice feel for loading the line and making accurate casts.

Rated 5 out of 5 1weight's a giggle
I purchased a 1wt. already owning a 3wt. finesse for my favorite totally-not-secret-but-secret creek. I love this little rod! You get some good bend with six inch trout, yet it has the backbone to effectively (and in short time) fight and land 17"-18" rainbows, which really suprised me. Fishing with my 5wt. yesterday felt like casting with a 2"x6" compared to this fun little rod.

Rated 4 out of 5 by wardawg3B alot of fun!
landed a 14in rainbow on my first day and it was quite a fight. the casting took a little getting used to, but that's mainly cause my other main rods are a 5wt and a 3wt. the flex on this this 1wt is great, you can feel it down to the base section. great rod!
