Region Fishing offers two types of high-quality freshwater fly rods. Both styles are manufactured with quality in mind and undergo a three-step quality control process that ensures your rod will be perfect from the day you receive it.

Buying a fly rod is a very personal experience and we want you to use our fly rods.  All rods and reels come with a 30 day return policy.  If the rod doesn't suit you, just return it back to us for a full refund.  We even pay for the shipping back.  Also, our rods come with an industry leading warranty/repair program.  If there is a manufacturer's issue, we will send you the new part at NO cost(no shipping and handling charges).  If you need a repair, we will send you the replacement part within one business day.  You will be back fishing either way within the week.

  • The South Holston is a medium-fast rod, that you will not out-grow. Even expert fly fisherman love the way the rod casts. The rod has a sling shot feeling when you have performed the perfect cast.

  • The San Juan is our flagship fly rod. With top of the line carbon fiber, components, and finishing, it is a high-performance rod that is comparable to the best rods on the market today. It allows expert anglers to make the long accurate casts to their targets in heavy wind.

The following tables below is a quick reference between the difference in the rods:

“I have cast many rods and the Region rods are smooth, accurate, and are light in the hand. We nymphed, threw dry dropper and even streamers and the rods handled it with ease. I enjoyed fishing these rods. Good quality and a value at the price!” - Andy Stutz, Colorado Fly Fishing Guide

“I use this South Holston to guide most of my clients. It is a very forgiving rod and the rod’s action lets the novice client feel the basics of casting and feel the strike and fight of the fish.” – Nick Hixon, Colorado Fly Fishing Guide

“Region asked me to abuse the San Juan rod, so I did, I have caught King and Atlantic Salmon, large rainbows, cutthroats and browns. The have full confidence in the rod and have had a lot of fun with it. I have fished it for almost 100 days, and it has handled all the abuse. I can’t wait for their 8 weight to come out.” – Brandon Ross 

“I used both rods on 7 lbs on Monster Brook Trout in Newfoundland and both 5 weights held up to the challenge. Flawless performance.” - Robert Holt
