You want a light presentation with a #18 PMD? This rod series will do it. How about deep nymphing with a stonefly or ripping a streamer through a logjam? These rods will do that too. DALs are highly versatile with a forgiving flex that still provides strong performance. Designed to fish, not for the parking lot shoot out!
C.F. Burkheimer offers three distinct builds for all of our rods: a Classic build, a Presentation build, and a Vintage build. The rod blanks are identical in all three builds, the differences are purely aesthetic.
