  • OUR PHILOSOPHY

    The goal of every Gatti engineer is to provide you

    with the most responsive fly rods in the world. We

    accomplish this by selecting the finest materials

    available anywhere and create a fly rod that is

    lighter in the hand , more power ful and yet

    smoother than any fly rod you've ever had the plea-

    sure to cast.

    It's easy to create a fly rod that is powerful and

    reliable if you don't consider weight as a factor. In

    fact, many of the "premium" fly rods available

    today are created that way. It's more difficult to

    create a fly rod that is light, powerful and reliable.

    Here at Gatti , we consider weight to be extremely

    important to the responsive capabilities of a fly rod.

    Our combination of the best materials, unique

    tapers and a revolutionary process that results in

    uniform wall thickness on each section of the rod

    blank, results in a fly rod that is more precise and

    virtually no spline to interfere with casting perfor-

    mance. Add the fact the Gatti fly rods are lighter

    than other fly rods in their class, and you have a fly

    rod that's a precision tool, pleasure to cast all day

    and will never leave your arm feeling tired.

    In the world, there are pretty fly rods and there are

    performance fly rods. Gatti fly rods are as nice to

    look at as they are to cast. Hand crafted reels seats

    with exotic woods are combined with the finest

    hard chrome guides to create a work of art.

    Sandro Gatti, general manager and rod designer

  • The power of a fly rod lies within its ability to cast a fixed weight. This concept must be respected. In fact, it cannot be modified, for a rod is strictly bound to the size fly line for which it is designed. The action of a fly rod is the way in which its power is distributed, the character of the fly rod is reflected in the way it bends while being cast. The action of the fly rod should match the personal preference, style, and casting ability of the fly fisherman. Fly Rods of equal weight can be slower or faster depen- ding on the action. In order to serve the need of all fly fishermen, we produce fly rods with three different actions.

    The FRX series is the most advanced expression of our production. The project of these intermediate action rods represents the synthesis of the characteristics of the FRD series. For every single section we have studied the taper according to the most suitable mat order to get the best performances linked to the most lightness, handling, accurancy and reliabilit blank is made through our UTS process with different materials for every single section. This design puts us in the front of the fly rod production industry.

    The FRC series of fly rods are manufactured from a special high modulus graphite used only by Gatti. This technolo- gically advanced graphite is combined with a smooth, progressive taper to produce fly rods that present even the smallest flies delicately, and protect the tinest leaders, without sacrificing performance, accuracy or distance. The dark sapphire-blue blanks are finished with high quality brier-wood reel seats and single foot snake guides to pro- duce a rod that's powerful, light, beautiful and smooth casting. The FRC series of rods are perfect for anglers who use long leaders and delicate flies to fish small streams and spring creeks for wary trout.

    The two piece FR-TA series rods are made from the same high modulus graphite as the FR-PA series, b the fast action tapers of the TA series achieve higher line speeds and tighter loops, than the other ro offered by Gatti. The rods in the TA series are the best choice for a person looking for a long casting, lig in-the-hand, fast action rod. The accuracy of these rods is superb. Some of the rods in this series are specialized, but the majority are designed to cover a broad range conditions and needs. If you want a fast action rod that feels light but casts with the power of a hea weight, this is the rod for you.

  • The space age materials and innovative design methods used to create the FR-3PA series results in the most technologically advanced fly rod available anywhere. These rods are created from the best uni-directional high modulus graphite using the Gatti exclusive "Uniform Thickness Structure" (UTS) process. They are care- fully balanced to produce higher line speeds, superior distance, exceptional accuracy and greater control than other rods on the market. The FR-3PA series is the most extensive series in our production line of rods. It consists of 35 three piece models to cover every fly fishing need. Long favored by destination anglers for ease of storage when traveling, there is an FR-3PA rod that's ideal for every situation, from delicate fre- shwater to demanding saltwater.

  • In a world where everything goes so fast and changes very quickly, it is beautiful to know there are who want to use the same rod for a lifetime and maybe present it to their children. Our bamboo ro duced in a limited quantity (only 25-30 rods per year) and completely handcrafted using very high materials, are created to satisfy those people's needs. The same tapers of the graphite combined with ned butts inside make these bamboo rods unique in their performance capabilities.
