The Spook Trophy from A.Jensen is built to meet the standards of the modern saltwater and freshwater fisherman. We “married” two of our favorite rods of all time – Spook Stalker and Trophy Specialist.
The lovechild of this marriage is the Spook Trophy – a rod that is build on knowledge from experienced Striper guides in North East of USA, Flats guides in the South East of USA and with a serious input from Scandinavia – the result is a truly superb, and beautiful, fishing rod !!
It is designed for the bigger/stronger fish like Pike, Muskie, Carp, Jacks, Roosterfish, False Albacore, Dorado, Tarpon, Bonefish and other strong powerful fresh and saltwater species. During testing they have battled Monster European Catfish to Yellow fin Tuna, Tarpon, Striped Marlin, Pike, Bonefish and a few others in between……
This is a fast action rod and the 45 ton IM8 Nano blank ensures, that it will deliver your fly, even the bigger half chicken size flies way out in the horizon – or at least in that direction.
We designed the rod with a matt grey blank with silky bluish shine, when the light hits from the right angle. This looks really awesome in a stylish and discrete way.
The bottom section has a top layer of woven carbon. Not only does this look stunning, but it also adds extra butt power those trophies needs some serious and tuff extra lifting power to be landed….
On top of that we used our SBD (Slim Blank Design). SBD blanks has many advantages. They are very slim, so they generate less air resistance, something you can feel immediately when driving the rod through the air. As we use the same amount of material, as in a normal blank, the walls are thicker, hence the rod is stronger. These features are an advantage in many situations, such as when tossing big predator flies, and when hammering flies in the harsh and often windy saltwater environment.
We have used the highest obtainable quality fittings, and adjusted every detail based on testing in waters around in Europe and North America.
The SPOOK TROPHY is a very slim and very light rod, with a huge amount of power, yet very delicate and sensitive. Try and lift and shake the 10 weight – I’m sure you will be amazed by the lightness, and you will for sure be sceptic if it really is a 10 weight, as it feels more like a 7 or 8. Come by one of our dealers and try it with a line on – let the rod convince you, not us!!!!

The SBD (slim blank design) and AHT (advanced helical technology) assures a fast action rod with great casting potential on both short and long distance, a really low weight and yet with the power to battle big powerful fish, without becoming a “stiff and dead” stick, that is no-fun to land an average size catch on. The delicate sensitive blank make fishing a joy – no matter if it is an average catch or the fish of a lifetime, that has decided to engulf your fly.
The 12 weight features our adjustable foam fighting handle. You can remove it from the rod when fishing. When a fish is on, and you need the fighting handle, you just push it onto the blank. It slides up and down, but once you grip it, it tightens on the blank and stay put. In this way you can choose to use the fight handle or not – it is up to your personal preference.
