The Origin range is built to offer all-around usability no matter the conditions, with a slim and powerful blank that feels alive to cast.
The Origin 3wt 8 foot 6 inch– Candy Red Edition also includes a matt aluminum rod tube that we manufacture locally and ships with a protective rod bag.
We created this model to be traditional but with stunning candy-red thread wraps to really make the rod pop! We assemble the Origin 8’6″ 3wt here in South Africa.

Designed and Assembled By Reel Fly Fishing In South Africa
The Origin is set to redefine what a fly rod at this price point can offer, just like our Origin fly reels did when they launched in early 2020.
Looking at the latest technology and applying our new DNA Helical Core blank construction to these rods has yielded a faster, more powerful, and lighter fly rod. The DNA-like structure of our woven SK40T carbon focuses the power and accuracy of the blank into an almost arrow-like nature. This “point and shoot” styled blank makes the Origin exceptionally well suited to fly anglers who like a fast powerful rod.
Using the best components means no compromise across the Origin range. Saltwater friendly from the lightest to the heaviest in the range means peace of mind no matter where you find yourself and your Origin.
Each Origin fly rod features bespoke finishes that are unique to its line weight, meaning you are not buying a fly rod that was simply produced to fill a need but rather thoughtfully crafted to maximize its use.

What Happens When I break A Section Of My Origin?
Simple and straightforward, send us a picture as well as which section you had an accident with and we will drop you the cost price for that section. Why pay for a warranty that you may never use, this was our thinking behind not inflating our rods prices to compensate for this. Only pay for what you use, and only pay when it breaks. Simple, easy, and no fuss. We carry sections and will match the section to your Origin fly rod perfectly.
