Don't know about you, but my first rod some 55 years ago was a Fenwick Fly Rod. The company still leads in the rod building arena.  Here's some new info on the HMG line from Fenwick.

The new Fenwick® HMG® fly rods are available in six models, from the small-water 7 foot, 6 inch 3-weight that weighs a mere 3.0 ounces to the 9-foot 8-weight. The crisp, medium-fast action generates a high line speed to stabilize the line in the air. This produces effortless, accurate casts whether working up close or shooting to long distance targets. Quality materials are matched to the high modulus graphite blank, giving the angler the rod they expect with the Fenwick tradition. 

 

 

COLUMBIA, S.C. (March 10, 2015) -  Over forty years ago Fenwick® introduced the High Modulus Graphite fishing rod and changed fishing forever. The new Fenwick HMG® fly rod reinvents this fishing classic with the lightest, most comfortable HMG fly rod ever. These new fly rods are now available at retail outlets nationwide.

HMG fly rods are designed with a crisp, medium-fast action that generates a high line speed to stabilize the line in the air for effortless, pin-point accurate casts up close and at a distance.  These rods are ideal for popping bugs, dry flies, nymphs or streamers, just right for panfish, trout, bass and any other fish a fly angler chooses to pursue.

Six models of the four-piece HMG fly rod are offered, from the small-water 7 foot, 6 inch 3-weight that weighs a mere 3.0 ounces to the 9-foot 8-weight, 4.2 ounces, for heavier applications. Each rod features a large diameter stripper guide and double foot snake guides, a "AAA" grade cork handle, an anodized aluminum double-up lock real seat and a hook eye on the rod butt to stow the fly when the rod is not in use.
