The CF Burkheimer trout rod has 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. The standard trout rod in the Burkheimer series is simply a joy to cast, and the accuracy is unparalleled for those anglers who prefer the kind of feeling that all CF Burkheimer Rods are famous for.
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.
The CF Burkheimer trout rod is available in two distinct actions: the Standard and the DAL or “Deep Action Load”. Each has a distinct action and feel to match your specific fishing style and conditions. These Standard action models 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. We offer these Burkheimer Trout Rods in the Classic style, and special orders can be arranged by request.
