Leland Sonoma Coast 9’3″ 7 Weight 4-piece Fly Fishing Outfit:
A brilliant and balanced outfit perfectly suited for bass, steelhead and large trout.
Efficiency is the secret of any well-crafted fly cast. A balanced fly fishing outfit, like the Leland Sonoma Coast, embodies this principle. Our rod, reel and fly line compliment one another and amplify your body’s movement, transferring your effort through the fly rod and into the fly line. The results are casts that celebrate our sport by providing you with controlled distance, accuracy and a subtle presentation, all with astonishing ease.
Our Leland Sonoma Coast fly rod is designed to respond to the short, compact casting stroke we teach in our Leland Method casting classes. This 9’3″ seven weight is exactly the right length and weight to not only efficiently deliver larger flies to bigger fish, but also control your drift. This particular fly rod is a nod to the past, when most fly anglers chose a single handed fly rod when chasing steelhead and larger trout. It allows for easy roll casts, when back cast room is limited, as well as super smooth overhead casts. This is a fly rod that would make your grandfather smile.
Adorned with our special Leland grip, the Sonoma Coast fly rod literally fits like a glove into your hand, adding intimacy that other fly rods often lack. Our intuitive grip provides you with added purchase and control of our already well-balanced fly rod. This rod is truly and extension of your body. Of course it’s finished with all the right components, including our double-uplocking, anodized reel seat. Our non-glare blank finish combined with and our darkened guide set provides a stealthy approach when casting and fishing.
Fly lines too often are a secondary consideration. Not for us at Leland. We searched and tested high and low for the perfect fly line. Our goal was to find a fly line that blends casting efficiency and enjoyment with fishing function. After much research, casting, testing and frustrating results, we decided to embark on our own journey to design the best fly line. It took us a while, but we did our job. Our Leland British Columbia weight forward, seven-weight floating fly line (affectionately called the “Pliny” after our favorite beer) casts like butter and floats like a cork and very noticeably compliments the efficient taper of our Leland Sonoma Coast fly rod.
To store the perfect fly line, we obviously needed a fly reel. Again, we worked hard to design a fly reel that balanced correctly with our fly rod, both physically and aesthetically. The Leland Classic Drift fly reel is the answer. When combined with the Leland Coast fly rod and our fly line, the whole is much greater than the sum of parts. With an adjustable and proven click and pawl drag system, this fly reel nods to the great fly reels of the past, while employing better contemporary materials and manufacturing process, ensuring a fly reel that will last a lifetime. Your grandfather would approve of this reel’s quality and he’d certainly approve of the celebratory sound it makes when your fish heads downstream.
Finally, you can store your balanced Leland Sonoma Coast fly fishing outfit handily in our nylon-covered rod tube. With its integrated, padded reel pouch, you can leave your Leland Classic Drift fly reel mounted proudly on your favorite big trout rod for easy storage and more importantly, quick rigging when it’s time to hit the water.
