The 490 VICE is a great dry fly and light nymph rod for spooky trout and clear water. It protects light tippets with ease and offers exceptional in-hand balance.
The VICE is a classically styled, fast-action rod range designed to be accessible to all anglers. The multi-modulus carbon fiber blanks offer increased levels of recovery for casting with greater accuracy and control to create a fly rod that anglers can't resist. A wide range of specialty sizes for unique applications will not only feed a fishing habit, but may just transform it into a VICE.
