The St. Croix Rods Avid Salmon and Steelhead series is a line of rods designed for salmon and steelhead fishing applications. Tricky fish like steelhead and salmon require nuanced tactics. Sensitivity. Feel. But with plenty of power when the time comes. Unless you've recently undergone piscatorial bionic surgery, you need an Avid Series casting rod from St. Croix Rods. Anything less is to invite folly. And that's no good – unless your dog's name is Folly. Recently redesigned, St. Croix Rods Avid Salmon/Steelhead series is built with high-modulus SC III graphite blanks engineered with St. Croix's exclusive IPC technology. Stronger, lighter and more sensitive – these rods are ready for all-day action. Of course, premium cork handles, Fuji exposed-blank reel seats and lightweight Alconite guides make them irresistible to fishermen with big fish on their mind.
