The new Spook Stalker from A.Jensen is built to meet the standards of the modern saltwater fisherman. We asked a bunch of people from Striper guides in the North East of USA to flats guides in the South East of USA, what they needed in a perfect saltwater rod for inshore fishing. The Spook Stalker “grew out of their heads” and experience. Then we added the knowledge from our Scandinavian type of saltwater fishing - the result is this new version of the Spook Stalker, a truly superb fishing rod!!
We even took the rods from two of our best selling models ever (the Seatrout Specialist and the Trophy Specialist) and redesigned these to the Spook Stalker standards. So now you can find these 8' casting bombs in a new, faster, lighter and more crisp version in the Spook Stalker Series.If you have never tried one of these 8' rods before - well we can only urge you to try. Without saying too much, we dare to say that there is a good chance that they will change your opinion what the perfect length for a saltwater rod is.........The 8' models are really powerful, and you get an incredible line speed with them - which will give you long casts and high backcasts that keeps clear of the back.When you lift them for the first time, you will probably think they feel almost too light, like several classes lighter, but that all changes when the line starts flying, and if a big fish takes your fly and brute power is needed, then it really demonstrates its "rhino" backbone. Said in a few words... - Go to one of our dealers and try it - let the rod "Speak" for it self !!!!
We designed the rod to be matt black all over, even the guides, to avoid flare and spooking shy fish in skinny water. On top of that we used our SBD (Slim Blank Design) to create a very slim rod that cuts through the wind like a knife, something all still water fishermen appreciate when trying to achieve long casting in windy conditions.
