The flagship Clutch rod and one of the greatest saltwater sticks ever created. The 7wt has become a local favorite for sneaking up on Redfish and the 8wt is one of our best selling rods. Cast one and you will not be disappointed! Handmade in the US of A.
9’ in length and available in eight line sizes, 5wt through 12wt Archipelago Rods feature a slim profile designed to slice through extreme coastal winds, and high-modulus blank construction that blends delicacy with power.
The result is a rod capable of reaching out to deliver tarpon flies delicately to laid up fish, with the backbone to break the spirit of the largest saltwater bruisers quickly and under demanding conditions.
The Saltwater Archipelago Series are four-piece rods featuring REC Recoil Snake guides, light weight Titanium Stripper Guides with SIC inserts, and a light weight natural finish with UV Coating, anodized aluminum reel seat with laser engraved CLUTCH logo, an attractive “tuxedo black” rod tube.
