Need a fly rod that can live up to the demands of monster fish in saltwater? You’ve just found them. 

Advanced designs and strong reinforcement ensure these rods are tough enough to handle whatever the big water can bring. Burkheimer use strong, oversized stripping guides with silicone carbide inserts as well as hard-chromed snake guides and tip tops. And their heavy-duty, saltwater reel seats feature Delrin lined hoods that won’t loosen up during critical moments in the battle.C.F. Burkheimer saltwater models aren’t just freshwater designs with corrosion resistant reel
seats. These rods are designed from the deck-up to make the toughest casts in the windiest conditions. They load quickly and shoot heavy flies through the wind with authority and ease. They respond immediately to changes in direction, and cast with point-and-shoot accuracy the first time.

Because when you finally see those tails working, the last thing to worry about is the rod.

C.F. Burkheimer Fly Rod Co. offers two distinct builds for our Saltwater rods: a Classic build, and a Presentation build. The rod blanks are identical in both builds, the differences are aesthetic.
