Designed to meet the demands of the fisherman who spends his hours stream chasing large trout in small water, the Au Sable fly rods series take the hassle out of tight quarters fishing.
Painstakingly developed and refined on the famous trout waters of the Eastern United States, this series of fly rods has exactly what the serious trout stalker needs. These flyrods were extensively tested and evaluated by skilled anglers from Michigan’s Au Sable and Manistee Rivers, to the Driftless Region of Wisconsin and even Pennsylvania’s famous Spring Creek. Mystic’s Au Sable series of fly rods feature the same premium components found on all Mystic premium rods but with application specific tapers and beautiful hand crafted burled rosewood reel seats.
Do you go after large fish in small streams? If so, you will appreciate the Mystic Au Sable series of fly rods that are specially made for fishing spots with brushy banks and nuisance overhangs.
Many fishing enthusiasts like yourself were desperate for a compact fly rod that would allow them to maneuver freely when fishing in tight quarters. The Mystic team took on the challenge of designing and producing shorter fly rods, then involved experienced anglers in testing them on world class trout waters from Michigan’s Au Sable and Manistee Rivers, to the Driftless Region of Wisconsin and even Pennsylvania’s famous Spring Creek. When the craftspeople at Mystic were finally satisfied they had produced a shorter fly fishing rod that did not sacrifice the quality and performance of the standard length, they released the Mystic Au Sable series.
Whether your idea of a good time is throwing size 22 Midges or size 4 Hex flies, the Au Sable series performs flawlessly.
