Chances are it wasn't fishing San Juan worms under a bobber or bouncing scuds along the river bottom that got you hooked on fly fishing--for most of us, it's the feel of the cast, the science behind matching the hatch, and the excitement of watching a wild trout rise to your fly as you set the hook that converts us from casual anglers to life-long fly fishing addicts. The Hardy Sirrus Glass Rod was designed precisely for this style of fishing with a unique construction that combines the classic, deep-loading feel of fiberglass with the lightness and response of graphite. Hardy calls its fiberglass/graphite hybrid Sintrix resin impregnated S glass, but regardless of what you want to call it, suffice it to say that this rod loads deep in the butt section of the blank while maintaining the side-to-side stability of what you might expect to find on a more modern graphite rod. While the Sirrus is ideally paired with small trout streams and dry flies, it isn't afraid to cast a dry-dropper rig when trout are playing hard to get, and it will even swing a wet fly or two when you're itching to try that partridge and yellow that you tied the night before.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
