Cortland Competition Nymph Rod

Euro/Czech style nymphing has caught on in the US like wildfire. Why? Because it works! While this style of fishing may look intriguing it is hard to do on just any single hand rod. Enter the Cortland Competition Nymphing Rod, one of the first of its kind to be made and readily available to US customers. The guys in Cortland set out to design a rod good enough (if not better) than the rods used in the style of fishing throughout Europe. The result is a long ultra sensitive rod that will pick up on the most subtle of strikes. If you commonly nymph for trout using a dead drift technique you are most likely familiar with that small flick of the wrist mend that most of us absolutely dread performing. And for good reason, it is tough, a little to much power and your whole drift is ruined, too little power and the whole drift is ruined. What we really like about these rods is the way the tips are built to specifically flip just to tip section of the rod making mending during a dead drift much easier. Not only that but this rods are 10 feet 6 inches long! I know after a few hours of holding my rod as high in the air as I can to obtain that perfect dead drift my arm tends to get dead sore. Having that extra length on the rod not only improves the dead drift technique but will allow you to bring your arm down to a more comfortable position allowing you to fish longer and with less agony.
  • Four-piece rods.
  • All rods include hook keepers and fighting butts with hard cork bottoms.
  • Available in two size 10'6" 3wt and 10'6" 4wt
