The folks at Redington just couldn’t help getting into the world of trout spey rods, and with the Hydrogen they hit the nail on the head. A great option for those looking to get started with lightweight Spey casting for trout and other smaller species. In the trout spey, Redington scaled up the stripping guides and reel seat for enhanced performance to the two handed caster. Along with superb casting and feel, this rod has grain recommendations for Scandi and Skagit shooting heads to take the confusion out of the equation for anglers. The Hydrogen Trout Spey is a modestly priced rod with features and performance that suggest otherwise.
