The Salish is our first fly rod developed specifically to meet the needs of big game, saltwater anglers everywhere. Born in the brackish waters of the Pacific Northwest and refined in the Indian River Lagoon, the Salish leaves nothing on the table to chance.

A skeletonized, machined-aluminum reel seat, powerful dual uplocking rings and matching stealth black, hard-anodized snake guides are just a few features that combat the relentless salt water. The Salish has the backbone to turn the heads of all species, cold and tropical, with an extra large fighting butt for when leverage is key.

The 4-piece Salish is available in 6 wt, all the way up to the mighty 12 wt. Each rod comes in a durable Cordura nylon tri-tube with soft lined compartments, and each is backed by Maxxon Outfitters unparalleled lifetime warranty and customer support, so you know you are covered for life.

7 wt with a great back!

Got the 7 weight to use on Puget sound coho. Hooked a few today. The Salish “fights up” at least 1 weight class! If you are in Seattle area, visit Justin and Brian. Nicest, most helpful, most sincere small business guys I’ve met. It obvious they live and breathe fishing and customer service

Great Rod for Big Fish

I do a lot of baby and juvenile tarpon fishing in Mexico. I typically run an 8, 9 or 10. These fish run between 15 and 40 pounds and you never know when you're going to need some extra backbone. The last two trips I brought the Salish 8 and 9. I gotta tell you, the performance and response, regardless of the wind, was first class.

In this game, when the light turns green and there's cruising tarpon at 50' or more, you HAVE to be able to deliver. Many of my boat mates are almost always ten feet short. I can make those necessary casts with the Salish line of rods. They double haul like a dream. I like the big ball fighting butt, guide spacing and overall flex of these rods, whether your casting or fighting in a big fish.

When you are paying big money on these kinds of trips, you can't afford to come up short. It is extremely frustrating to many trout anglers who head to saltwater, only to find their style of casting doesn't cut it in saltwater. I've used a number of high-end expensive flyrods and the Salish matches up head to head. Why spend a ton of cash on a rod that will not perform any better than this modestly priced Salish?

Whether you heading to exotic destinations or just down the road for some big fish action, bring a Salish along and you'll head home with a smile on your face.

Good job boys - you got a winner here!!

Best quality, price, customer service and lifetime warranty

A couple of years ago I posted a review, specifically for the 8wt. I still take the 8wt along when I fish for something larger and want to use bigger flies. I was very curious how a 11wt rod feels. This year I used the 11wt Salish when musky hunting. I was surprised and very pleased how easy it is to cast this 11wt. One would think it will be a beast to cast all day but I recently fished for 9 hours straight using the 11wt and sometimes 12wt for my 12+ inch flies. The 11wt allows me to fish my flies which I feel just a bit uncomfortable with to use with my 10wt rods. No need to use lines specifically for 11wt. I have various lines I use for my 10wt rods and I used them all on the 11wt rod. The heaviest Prime Premium 'RAPID SINK' fly lines work just fine for this 11wt.
It is hard to beat the quality, price, customer service and lifetime warranty.
If you are looking for something to fish those bit bigger flies, and do not want to drag out the fight for too long once you are hooked up, I highly
recommend the Salish 11wt. If I did not mention it already, it has lifetime warranty. Because accidents do happen.

Great New Rod Comapny

Have a trip in April to Mexico plant and Orvis completely botched my repair, so I picked one of these up from my local fly shop as it was the ONLY 8 WT left on the rack and walked away very nervous. After fishing with this thing the last few weeks and putting some bruiser redfish on the board, I gotta say I don’t know if I’ll use another saltwater fly rod again. Definitely hope the price point and customer service stay the same W/ Maxxon as I’m sure this rod will become more popular as it is discovered by more of us.

Not your average rod!

Even though this rod is developed mainly for saltwater, I take my 8wt on my boat every time I go out fishing the rivers and lakes around here in the upper Mississippi valley. When using a sink tip or intermediate line with this rod, I can punch right into the wind without a problem, and that makes a potential miserable fishing trip into a pleasant one. I have caught too many big bass on this to count. The oversized fighting butt makes handling the bigger fish very easy.
I always take my 8wt Salish along when I go musky hunting and recently hooked into a 5.5lb smallmouth bass. It handled extremely well. With the 300gr Premium Rapid sink prime line I can throw many of my musky flies I also use with my heavier rod. Excellent quality and design.
