The Origin range is built to offer all round usability no matter the conditions, with a slim and powerful blank that feels alive to cast.
The 3wt 8’6″ Origin is carefully assembled right here in South Africa and features bespoke components and design elements that have been thoughtfully crafter to maximize your time on streams and smaller rivers. A rod that can be used as both a Nymphing stick as well as a dry fly rod wrapped into one. The 3 weight nature of the blank means you can punch it through the wind even when loaded with a tungsten beaded fly or a couple dies/droppers. A soft but fast tip gets your nymphs turning over but also protects those light tippets when the water is thin and clear. includes our aluminium rod tube in a burnt matt orange.

The Custom Origin range 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. The custom range is a unique approach to offering a fly rod assembled in SA but without the huge price tag and with the options to choose design elements such as thread wrap colours, components and rod tube elements.
Looking at the latest technology and by applying our new DNA Helical Core blank construction to these rods has yielded in a faster, more powerful and lighter fly rod. The DNA like structure of our woven SK36T +SK40T carbon focuses the blanks power and accuracy 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. Salt water 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 Custom Origin?
Simple and straight forward, 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 on hand however we do make them up based on your rods individual design elements should this apply.
