Welcome to the Greys Fly Tackle Page!

When ever I purchase anything, I like to find quality and value. I like products that are well thought out, that are easy to use and well priced. I can go right down the list and mention many things that I use everyday made just that way! Over the past few years we've seen an explosion of imported tackle and many new items being introduced that aren't well thought out, tested or even well made. Drags that lock up, handles that break, rod guides that are loaded with epoxy and rods that are so stiff that they are only useful for hanging clothes. Sure, price is important but a well made product and a good price, now you've got my attention! Very few people have heard of Greys' Fly Rods or Reels, for good reason. Until now these products were not available here in the USA. Greys is a Division of Hardy and now one of the oldest names in fly fishing brings its exciting new line of products to the USA. Innovative products that are well made at great prices. Many of you have become very big fans of these rods, reels, bags and technical clothes in very short order. To put it into a nutshell, these rods are hot!

Greys begins by using the best product managers and designers to create their own new products. These products are made using the most modern technology available. Developed products are made with partnering overseas manufacturers to reduce cost while Greys controls the quality. Specific rod tapers are created only for Greys while they maintain and control the product from start to finish. And you won't be seeing the same 9 foot 5 weight relabeled with Bud's Bait and Brew name on it and sold at 20 different outlets. Greys products are tested completely by their European Pro Staff and only then when the product is refined and completely evaluated is it introduced. Couple this with Greys lifetime warranty and you have everything you could expect from a fly tackle manufacturer: Innovation, Quality and Value. It is easy to see why some of these rods are Europe's best sellers.

For 2011, Greys has introduced several new rods and reworkd some old favorites. The new rods are already a big hit. Be sure to check out the sizes, weights and lengths of these rods as many of them are quite unique.

New for 2011: XF2 Streamflex

Ideal for Czech Rods for Nymphing!

Streamflex XF2: Since its inception several years ago, the Streamflex has become one of the top choices by leading European guides. Redeveloping the Streamflex wasn't easy. Designed for the most technical and demanding of light line anglers, Greys improved the Streamflex's lengendary smoothness and in-hand balance with totally redesigned blanks and custom fittings. Greys also added several new sizes and lengths to meet the demands of even the most technical of anglers. These rods are used by nearly every competition fly fishing team in the world

These are ideal for spring creek fishing and small trout streams. Longer lengths are used in competition fly fishing and for wet flies and Czech nymphing.

Streamflex XF2 features a high modulus blank with section line-up marks, a AAA cork grip, an anodized aluminum seat with Maple Burl insert, twin reel lock nuts. The XF2 comes with a triangle shaped tube, sock and has a life time warranty. Blanks are dark brown with brown thread wraps.

Long Length XF2 Streamflex Rods: These are ideal for Czech nymphing and deep water or European style fishing. These can be also used with float tubes or pontoon boats and kayaks for improved distance in the wind. Not many US manufactures offer long, light rods suited for this style of fishing. Long rods allow for better mending and control when fishing short lines. If you don't have one of these lengths of rods, you owe it to yourself to try one. These are also great for drift boats, when line is picked up you are less likely to tangle with a fishing partner in the boat. The long lengths create drag free drifts that allow you to reach trout easily with less effort.

XF2 : For 2011, Greys brought the original X-Flite up to date by adding more features, a better fit and finish at an excellent price. Fitted with a new 2 part aerospace grade aluminum seat, the new seat was designed in-house by Grey's engineers. Each XF2 has a custom composite tipped AAA cork handle with burl inserts for a comfortable grip. Handles are top grade cork sanded to a soft touch. Each rod has line up marks for perfect alignment of sections. The result is a smooth high modulous rod that is lighter and more powerful than the earlier models introduced by Greys. The action is wonderful along with Greys attention to detail creating one of best made, well thought out rods in some time. Quite simply this is a great product.

WOW! You will want one of these!

Long Length XF2 Rods: Many Americans will find this interesting why longer rods are often used in Europe. The Czech nymphing craze was started in competition fishing several years ago and has become the hot method of fishing in Europe. By using a long rod you can get many drifts and present your fly in different ways we don't often use. Several stillwater anglers love these lengths for buzzer or chronomid fishing.The longer lengths are used to improve the drift and how the bugs behave in the water. The 10' 6 and 7's are ideal for steelheading in the Great Lakes.

GS, GS2 and the GRXi+. These rods have great features, are well made, cast great and have great prices. These rods are all that you are looking for in new tackle. If you are looking to add new rods, start fishing, need a back up or need a few rods for friends and family these are all good choices.

GS:Take a look through any fishing catalogue or tackle shop rod rack, and you will find a multitude of 'entry level price point' rods - so why should you select a GS from this huge offering? Here at Greys, we don't simply buy a rod 'off the shelf' and change the name and logo - even on our entry level range we design and develop everything from scratch, here in Alnwick. From the 4 piece blank - built to our specification, to the shape of the handle, we design the lot. The rod actions are tested and 'tweeked' until our developers are 100% happy with them, then the blanks are tested to destruction on our test rig. Each model then undergoes extensive testing 'on the water' with our consultants across the globe. Only after we are happy with the results of all of this development and testing do we offer the rods to you the customer. Read the specification, take a look at the finish, and feel the action of the 4 piece blanks, and you will realise that the only thing 'entry level' about a GS rod is it's price. Each GS comes with : Anodized Reel Seat, High Quality Fine Touch Cork Handles, Low Glare Blanks, Cloth Bag. Note: These rods don't come with a rod tubes.

Platinum XD Saltwater Rods:

 

Platinum XD Saltwater: The XD has proven to be a key player in saltwater fly fishing. The slim profile allows the XD to cut through strong winds like a knife. Whether you are fishing for bones, tarpon, stripers or permit, the XD offers a a high modulous construction that mixes delicacy and control to battle even the largest of fish. As a side note: This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful, well made saltwater rods I've ever seen. The blanks are a deep polished blue with a nice smaller grip that is easy on the hands. This would also make a powerful rod for pike, largemouth bass, salmon fishing or steelheading.
