Ask a group of experienced anglers to name the greatest dry fly rod of all time, and the Paradigm is sure to be mentioned more than once. Over twenty years later, Thomas & Thomas followed the same inspiration that made the original into a legend to create a new Paradigm for the 21st century. While the advance of technology has pushed the limits of rod weight, line speed and casting distance, the essence of stalking a rising trout and presenting the fly remains unchanged. With this in mind, T & T set out to capture the unique feel that made the original Paradigm fly rods such a magical instrument. Made in USA.
