Vision have a new entry in what is probably the most competitive part of the fly rod market, the £250 price range.Nowadays, for that sort of money I’d be expecting a well designed rod that is fully fit for purpose, is well finished, has something a little extra to make it stand out from the crowd and does exactly what it is supposed to when I am casting a fly line to fish.Enter the Vision Tane. Tane, apparently, is a Finnish term for brown trout but it still translates well to a name for a range of rods for us here in the UK too.I spend a lot of time looking at rods in these price ranges and am spoilt for choice if I want an 8 1/2ft or 9ft 4wt, my normal river all-rounder. No, when I am looking at this price point I want something that is a little different yet will fit in with the rods I already own and use.

This is when my ears pricked up a little when I noticed one of the rods in the Tane series is a 9 1/2ft 3wt. Now, as a light line enthusiast this really interests me. A rod that will be perfect for fishing pocket water high up on Dartmoor when I am fishing a short line but will still allow me to make great mends of line when I am working a dry on a long drift on my home water of the Taw.

The 3 wt line will also be heavy enough to allow me to fish a NZ rig or Duo style set-up should I want to fish a nymph too.

So, I bit the bullet and bought one.

The first thing I noticed when the rod arrived and I’d unpackaged it was the rod tube. I guess this is the first part of making your rod stand out. It has the appearance of being a premium end rod tube. I also like the way rod sock complements both the rod blank and the tube too. These really are minute details but nice ones. Nice quality cork too.

I put the rod together and gave it a quick wiggle. Initial impressions were exactly as Vision describe “smooth medium fast action”.

Casting the rod on grass I strung it up with a RIO LT, RIO Gold and a Barrio Smallstream. For me, the Gold just shaved the Smallstream line but that was personal preference. I spoke to a couple of friends who said they’d been fishing the rod with a RIO Perception and really liked it. Again, with a line through the rod rings I’d agree with Vision’s description of the rod action.

The rod performed as I hoped it would both at short range and slightly longer too. I always fight the urge to rip all of the line off of the reel and see how far it will cast as I don’t fish at these distances but did have a little go and it did well.

I have taken the rod on the river and fished it with just a dry and with a nymph hung below the dry too and have enjoyed doing so. Recently I fished with two good friends and we just shared the rod and fished. The response was a positive one from both of them.

There are rods for just about all disciplines in the Tane range from an 8ft 3wt to a 10ft 7wt and I think Vision might have found themselves a nice spot in a hard part of the market place. Well done.
