When I found out about the Genesis rod series from Risen Fly Fishing, I was excited to get my hands on it. What happened when I received the 9′ 5-weight and took it out to cast? My anticipation was well founded.
Reason being, the Genesis is A) a value, and B) flexible.
In terms of value, Risen Fly continues to turn out gear at a great price. Utilizing industry-standard components and construction, their business model and philosophy allows for wallet-friendly rods and reels. At under $100, the Genesis is a fantastic buy. That price point makes getting into fly fishing or adding another rod to your quiver simple.
The Genesis is flexible in more ways than one. I prefer a moderate fast action for trout because of the delicacy it provides when it comes to presentation. Additionally, it is my “action of choice” when I am teaching people to cast and fish. The Genesis is a rod that I’ll fish, but also a rod that I won’t hesitate to hand to someone I’m introducing to the sport.
