Euro Nymphing? You can't touch this...
Looking to Euro Nymph? At 10 1/2 feet and a 3 weight, IMHO this Cortland rod is the perfect length, weight & action, and at $219.95 is a STEAL! You cannot touch a rod this good at a price anywhere near this low. Balances perfectly in your hand, throws both light & heavy weighted flies, turns over long leaders when necessary, protects your tippet, and helps keep the hook from popping out of the trout's mouth. LOVE this rod! Also makes a killer wet fly/soft-hackle rod.
The Ultimate Book on Nymphing!
I've read as many books on nymphing as I could get my hands on, and this one is the best ever written on the subject. With mentors such as Joe Humphreys & Vladi Trezbunia, growing up in central PA, and being on Flyfishing Team USA & competing internationally all over the world, I guess George Daniels could not help but pick up a thing or two.
The best DVD on European Nymphing!
Looking to up your nymphing game? This DVD by our former guide Aaron Jasper is his 2nd one on the subject, and he has firmly established himself as an expert in the Euro Nymphing world. You will learn how to apply Euro techniques/rigs/flies to 10 different nymphing situations, with no details left out. Study it closely, and you cannot help but catch more trout.
