The Burkheimer Classic 8 foot 9 inch 4 weight is a crisp faster action fly rod that makes a fantastic dry fly trout rod for anglers with a quicker casting stroke. While not necessarily “fast action” compared with many of today’s trout rods, the Burkheimer 489 has enough zip to please even the most hyperactive of anglers. So if you’re seeking a new dry fly rod that looks great and feels amazing, the Burkie 489 is a good place to start.
