Lamson Purist Fly Rod Introduction

If dry fly fishing is the name of your game, the Lamson Purist can take your angling to the next level without breaking the bank. With the fall BWO hatch just around the corner now is the time to grab a new stick and get out there!

For dropping a baetis spinner just in front of a picky brown trout on the Missouri or fishing BWO duns on the Madison, the Lamson purist is a great inexpensive stick for delicate presentations in Southwest Montana.

Waterworks-Lamson Purist 905-2 - $400

Purpose built for technical fly fishing; for accuracy and finesse, for long leaders and small flies. Everything about Purist is focused on reducing upper section weight to enhance energy delivery, recovery, feedback and feel.

  • Inspired by some of the most revered finesse rods of all time, we revived two-piece construction for our light line rods. Renown for their smooth energy and control, two-piece Purist rods deliver a classic action with modern performance.
  • The Purist blank is very progressive, with a supple tip that loads easily short, a mid-section that maintains tracking and stability of a solid butt section that stores and releases energy with perfect control.
  • Purist incorporates a fusion of snake and single foot guides; small, thin wire, single foot guides are utilized in the top 1/3 of the rod to reduce weight and preserve the truest flex of the tip while traditional snake guides are utilized in the lower 2/3 of the rod to maximize durability and line tracking.
  • By removing only a small amount of exterior epoxy and sealing the finish with a fine vapor coating we avoid altering the action and integrity of the blank while ensuring a protective finish.
  • The combination of a small diameter, short tip top with minimal wraps and epoxy helps create the lightest tipped rod you’ll find.
