Mike McFarland is the founder of the McFarland Rod Company, based in Pennsylvania in the US.. He grew up fly fishing the famous limestone steams of central Pennsylvania. Chasing these selective trout helped hone his fishing and casting skills Mike is a 4 time winner of the Hardy Cup and has over 30 years experience designing and building fly rods. McFarland’s work is well known across the globe and his rods are regarded by many as the finest ever made. We’re thrilled to be working with him here at Alternative Tackle.
“The Spruce Creek was the first McFarland glass rod produced. The Spruce Creek feels like a glass rod should feel. They are soft, smooth, and deep flexing with the perfect balance of power from tip to butt. The Spruce Creek is ideal for everything from swinging soft hackles to throwing streamers. I have so many Spruce Creek tapers that I’ve worked out over the years that the possibilities are almost endless.”
