Burkheimer DAL Trout Rod. CF Burkheimer trout rods have been quietly taking over the quality trout waters the world over. As most of you know, trout fishing is much more than just a 9-foot, five-weight game– There are a host of presentation situations out there, from small spring creeks to big western rivers, and CF Burkheimer has a rod for them all.
These trout rods are light in the hand, but heavy in performance. Kerry has always maintained that he builds rods that you’ll love to fish because you deserve it and the trout deserve it. While their trout rods contain plenty of technology, they don’t use buzz-word marketing lingo to describe tapers or models– That’s not the Burkheimer way. Instead, they have preferred to focus on building exceptional fly rods—fly rods with that Burkie feel.
CF Burkheimer trout rods are available in two distinct actions: the “Standard” and the Burkheimer DAL Trout Rod or “Deep Action Load”. Each has a distinct action and feel to match your specific fishing style and conditions. The Standard action rods are slightly quicker and more tip-loading rods. They will handle big brawling western rivers and the conditions they entail, which also allows them to handle larger flies with ease. That said, the Standard action fits the angler that tends to push his cast a little more than others.
The Burkheimer DAL Trout Rod (Deep Action Load) series was designed for angler’s who prefer a more relaxed stroke, and their deep loading feeling should not be confused with a slow action. These rods offer full flexing blanks, firm tips and fast recovery, and have quickly become the number one selling rods in the Burkheimer line. DALs are highly versatile with a forgiving flex that still provides strong performance. We carry these rods in the Vintage style, and special orders can be made upon request.
