Soldarini Fly Tackle from Italy develop their rods in close collaboration with successful competition fishermen from all over Europe. No tackle manufacturer can boast the 20 years experience in international competition that Soldarini can. This experience, combined with distinctive Italian attention to detail facilitate some of the finest fly rods available on the market today. These unique rods are created on the foundation of years of experience at international river and lake tournaments - but they also perform for everyday fishing. They are characterized by extremely lightweight designs that offer great stability and have a very good price:performance ratio.


The Hydropsyche Tournament rods are the pinnacle of the wide rod selection offered by Soldarini Fly Tackle. These premium rods are the result of dedicated development based on the latest Japanese technologies. All models offer impressive sensitivity for detecting the most cautious takes. With these rods, a neat and precise presentation of the nymph using modern European techniques is attained. Even the smallest nymph or slightly weighted patterns can be presented delicately. The high-quality blank is made with the latest carbon fiber technologies, and the unique construction adds excellent strength to the blank without adding weight. The combination of 8 different types of high modulus carbon, with carbon fibers arranged at 45 degrees to reduce torsion through the blank makes this possible and maximises performance throughout the cast. This cutting edge technology is not used by any other rod manufacturer, allowing Soldarini Fly Tackle to confidently label the Hydropsyche Tournament rod series the most highly technological product on the market.

Additionally, the use of special resins and nanotechnology help keep the rod extremely lightweight. Other features of the Hydropsyche Tournament rods include an unpolished dark grey blank, premium cork handle and a machined stock bar 6061 aluminum reel seat with woven carbon insert to enhance these ultralight rods. Add to this premium titanium rec-recoil guides and you have a rod built with the best components the market can offer.

Soldarini has designed another high-end rod series with the Hydropsyche Tournament in cooperation with experienced competition anglers. If you are looking for the lightest nymph rods on the market, then you are in the right place.
