Trouble at Home? Silver Creek is an intoxicating problem. Languid currents and clear water lay bare your plans. The fish have advanced degrees in entomology, with ample time to study the menu.
And this is our home turf.
If Silver Creek is the problem, Purist is the solution: Purpose-built for technical fly fishing; for accuracy and finesse, for long leaders and small flies. From its 2 piece construction to the light and spare hardware specification, everything about Purist is focused on reducing upper section weight to enhance energy delivery, recovery, feedback, and feel.
When it comes to action, it's all about the balance of power. The Purist blank is very progressive, with a supple tip that loads easily and short, a mid-section that maintains tracking and stability, and a solid butt section that stores and releases energy with perfect control.
Purist was designed and tested, revised and fine-tuned and tested, and tested and tested (and tested) on some of the most exacting water on the planet.
The others will seem easy.

Exceptional Value!

I have been fishing the same 4wt rod and reel for a long time and have had much success both dry flying and nymphing. This year, however, I wanted to "up" my drying flying game. After much research, I decided on the Lamson 3wt Purist. The river I fish most requires small dry flies - 22-26's. The presentation must be soft and accurate. The Purist does both extremely well. I like the two piece rod assembly and the attractive finish. This rod makes beautiful curve casts, roll casts and reach casts. The new lock down rail system is an added bonus. I have also high-sticked this rod when there were no fish rising and it performed exceptionally well. It's light weight is a big plus. I believe this would be a great nymphing rod on small brooks. In closing, I do believe the Purist has improved my dry flying and at the listed price, it is a GREAT VALUE. I rightly recommend this rod.

level up! Glad the Purist rod has been a good fit for you and thanks for the thoughtful review. Its a great explanation of what this rod does and how it fishes. Have a great season and thanks for fishing the Purist. If you like the 3wt you'll love the 4wt too!

Best Fly Rod I have owned

I purchased a Purist 9' 4 wt a little while back and finally had a chance to use it recently. I was on a little creek at snow line that was crystal clear and spooky. One strike and your out type of fishishing.
This rod is awesome, pin point accuracy, a joy to cast! I have been fishing with a fly rod in my hands for 61 years. Although, lots of worm dipping as a kid! There are several quality fly rods in my closet and now they will remain there.
Many thanks to Waterworks Lamson for building a quality product.

That is the right tool for the job!

Fish saver. Our breakout product in the fly fishing industry, years ago, we thought: “There’s got to be a better way to remove a delicately-tied fly from a hooked fish than the hoisting, clamping, and wrenching process now on display.” So we created a simply innovative tool capable of reducing fish mortality by eliminating netting and handling—then named it after our home-base of Ketchum, Idaho. This technique will preserve protective coatings and eliminate air exposure. The Ketchum Release® tool makes low-mortality release easy, plus allows you to retrieve your fly without damage. It even keeps your hands high and dry. The Ketchum Release® is available in three sizes:  Big Bug for hook sizes 6-10; Standard for sizes 12-16; and Midge for sizes 18-22.
