Reilly Rod Crafters / The Mountain Midge / Sep 24, 2018

Chris Reilly, president of Reilly Rod Crafters.

Inspired by the master bamboo rod makers of the past, Reilly Rod Crafters’ “Mountain Midge” has a feel and an aesthetic that hearkens to angling’s “golden era.” But, make no mistake, this rod is built for today.

With modern fiberglass construction and a sweet progressive action, the Mountain Midge is ideally suited to small creeks and headwater streams, where its 6’9” length is perfect.

Small in stature but BIG on performance. The Mountain Midge can reach out to 60’ with no problem, and is as happy delivering a small terrestrial pattern as it is a size 22 Griffith’s Gnat. It can handle the biggest trout in the pool, but also gives the angler joy with a scrappy 8-incher.

Built With Pride, In America, by the Artisans of Reilly Rod Crafters.
