The nine-foot eight-weight BVK is the universal flats fishing rod, designed by Lefty Kreh, who has spent many years fishing for bonefish, snook, baby tarpon, redfish and stripers in skinny water. In this environment, casting distance and extreme accuracy are demanded. It takes a certain kind of rod and a highly skilled angler to win here. This is such a rod. It is well suited for fish that average 2 - 10 pounds.
