  • Whether you're a regular visitor to the flats or planning for your first trip, the Motive will give you all the performance you need at a price tag that will not break the bank. The Motive is the result of a marriage of tried and tested rod build materials complimented by great rod design and saltwater fly fishing know-how. This range of rods covers flats bonefish, permit and tarpon with ease and precision. They deliver tight loops, cast big flies and tame powerful fish. At the same time they are a joy to cast and look amazing. If you fish in the UK for bass, pollock, pike or any other hard fighting species you will find the Motive to be perfect at home as well.
