What does it take to be the greatest? Time. Persistence. Results. Accuracy. For the past three years, we’ve taken all of the feedback on our rods to create the best possible rendition of what a great fly rod should be. The significant backbone to give you fighting power when you least expect it. Load and recovery in the top 1/3 of the rod to help you punch your line deep through less than perfect conditions. Materials and components light enough to allow you to cast 8 hours at a time without fatigue. This is what it takes to be the G.O.A.T.
There is perhaps no method of trout fishing more synonymous with wading than nymphing. Nymphing is not “hard”, by definition. You float a bug underwater and hope it hits a trout in the nose. Like anything else though, being a great nympher takes lots of practice, skill, and the correct tools. Consider the Nymphster your shortcut in the tool department. Strong, long and extremely sensitive, this rod will allow you to pick up on the slightest of takes while giving you enough reach, backbone and fighting power to land the fish of a lifetime.
The Ext is new to our 2019 lineup and includes an extra 5th section that allows you to fish the rod at 10 or 11 feet.
