An Inexpensive Way To Start Euro Nymphing
With the growing demand for specialized Euro Nymph rods, the demand for a rod that fits the needs of anglers that are not looking to compete at the national championships has also been growing. We used our extremely popular Carbon XL rod as a tried-and-true foundation to make a rod that met and exceeded the expectations of these anglers.
Balanced Action and Power for Maximum Versatility
Competition-style Euro Nymph rods can be so specialized that they aren’t always the right tool for most recreational anglers. By using the Carbon XL’s already versatile design and extending the length to 10′, we produced a rod that is not only capable of anything a trout angler needs, but excels at it.
A Trout Rod for Every Occasion
Perfect for any style of nymphing, dry flies, lake fishing, and more! We took an already great rod, gave it a new tip section as well as a few other upgrades, and made one of our most versatile fishing tools to date.
Fast action rods feature softer tips than medium action rods and provide a ‘stiffer’ feel. Fast action rods excel in the hands of anglers with more aggressive casting strokes and greater stroke control. Medium action rods are ideal for anglers with more fluid casting strokes and have a larger ‘sweet spot’ for a wider range of casting strokes. Consistently throwing a tailing loop? Your rod’s action may not be a good fit to you and your casting stroke.
A rod’s power is its resistance to flexing under load. Powerful rods are ‘beefier’ through the bottom half, generate higher line speeds, and are more adept at keeping big fish pinned. Delicate rods are more presentation-oriented, protect light tippet, and are a better choice for picky fish.
Wash all components with warm freshwater after each days use in saltwater. Pay extra attention to the space where the guides meet the blank and the metal parts of the reel seat. Try to keep sand and dirt out of the ferrules. Occasionally use a few drops of any reel oil or grease on the reel seat threads to keep it operating smoothly. Paraffin wax can also be used on the ferrules if needed to ensure a proper fit.
Do not use tape on your ferrules. If you do we’ll come steal all your bacon and PBR.
