    Default Tikka Fly Rods

    Have you guy's heard of a Fly Rod called "Tikka"?
    Is it new on the market?
    It comes in a 4/5 w & 6/7 w.
    It is ultra light & it almost looks like a Cane Rod (Yellow/Beige in color)

    If you have, let me know.

    What I do know is hat Tikka builds quite a fine range of reels for almost all fishing applications. I've used them for bass fishing, where they performed well and reliably. I also have one of their fly reels on one of my yellowfish rods. It has one of the smoothest drags I've ever come across. The fly rods I've never seen. I will definitely not buy a fly rod coloured like that!

    Tikka rods and Tica reels are different brands!

    From the colouration you describe, it almost sound like the Harvest brand rods. Never heard of Tikka fly rods before - will Google a bit and see if I can find out something.

    Um... the cheaper version of a sako flyrod perhaps?

    Default Not Tikka - Should be Tica

    Thanks for all the replies, but the name I put down is incorrect.
    Sorry.....
    The rod make is "TICA"

    They make some pretty decent reels, you would assume there rods are of the same standard.
