DENNIS FRANKE – Liteline Graphite Flyrods
Playing the game of technical trout stream angling involves fooling smart, often large trout
with small, often tiny, drift-and-hatch-matching flies on fine 6x to 7x tippets, cast with
precision accuracy and utmost delicacy using ‘lite’ 1, 2 and 3-weight flyrods and lines.
United States rodmaker, Dennis Franke, based in Wisconsin’s Driftless Area of limestone
spring-creeks, dedicates himself exclusively to designing and making flyrods for this game.
Ultralight, finesse-stroke flyrods of smooth IM6 graphite and high-density S2 glass, 8’7” to
8’9” for 1, 2, and 3 lines, in contrasting Progressive and Para actions, unbelievably
light in the hand and on-the-stroke at a mere 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 ounces.
