St. Croix Avid Fly Rod
St. Croix Avid Fly Rods are versatile, moderate action fly rods that load smoothly and progressively down the blank for a silky casting stroke and exceptional feel. Featuring St. Croix's exclusive IPC technology and slim profile ferrules all cloaked in a sultry canteen green pearl, these rods are nothing short of classically elegant. These are built with St. Croix's Solid Carbon (SC) graphite. This is an advanced, high-modulus graphite that delivers maximum durability and sensitivity. The SC graphite blank material creates a rod with a smooth, light feel in the hand and superb power.
These rods feature Integrated Poly Curve tooling technology. The first process of its kind, IPC creates tapers that are a continuous curve from the tip to the butt of the rod - eliminating all weakening transition points. That means stronger rods and actions that cast with unprecedented smoothness. It's a remarkable performance breakthrough and it's exclusive to St. Croix.

Ratings & Reviews
Now I have exactly what I wanted
by Bill McGeehan -
My Avid Series 5 wt rod is made for medium to large creeks. The action and sensitivity are outstanding for fast reaction to strikes. I have better control while working trout than I had with my previous 4-5 wt rod. I also appreciate the time spent with the folks at FishUSA that allowed me to determine this was the correct rod for me.
Nice rod for small, brushy streams.

I have only been out with this rod once (it's snowing here now), but it seems like a great rod for fishing small, brushy streams in New Mexico.
American quality at its finest! Beatifully balanced and perfectly tapered. worth every penny. Its's so nice, I got one for my brother. [...] Great rod, [...]. Thank you.
Best fly rod on the market
by Older Brother
I bought my 6' from Fish USA because they had the best price [...]. It is the finest fly rod I have. Roll cast? piece of cake. Strong? I landed a 17 3/4" brook trout on it. Sensitive? I caught a 4" native brook trout on it. Again, the best on the market. And, American made.
Steal of a Rod
I've been fly fishing for over 30yrs. and this is by far the best rod I've ever owned. After purchasing this rod (9'6wt) I sold I all my "high end" rods. This rod out preformed them all - hands down. From Smallmouth Bass to Tailwater Rainbows this rod has the power and sensitivity to handle any situtation.
Good, light fly rod.

I bought this rod for fishing small, brushy streams in New Mexico. I was hoping to find something less expensive, but, on my one trip out with it, it seems just the ticket. Light and responsive. Seems well made.
Best value for the money fly rod
by Jay -
Bought the 9' 6" 7 wt. for great lakes steelhead, matched it with the cortland precision salmon/steelhead line. The rod casts great, is able to roll cast a mile, short casts and boomers - no problem. Great construction and components, beautiful blank finish and nice case. I'm proud to fish this rod. Thank you, St. Croix!
