    Cortland Competition Rod - European Style Nymphing – Cortland Line North America

    Yes, I’ve eyed that one as well. There’s a Chinese rod, Maxcatch, that’s like im10. I have read reviews, and they are mixed. Retail is less than $100 on Amazon, and even less on their website. Although it would be a small investment, I’m still gun shy.

    I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.

    I know what a nymph is, I think, but have read that it's a special way of fishing. What's so different than any other kind of fly?

    Nymphs are the "flies" that live in the water before they become mayflies, caddis flies, mosquitoes, etc. So, when you're nymph fishing, you're just fishing a sinking fly beneath the surface. There are many different ways to "nymph fish". What they have in common is that it's all subsurface fishing.

    Also, 90% of what you read about "nymph fishing" will be about fishing for trout in moving water. Another 9.9% will be about fishing for trout in still waters.

    So, if you're not doing a lot of trout fishing, don't lose any sleep over it.

    Death, is not just for trout as I am certain you know. To date, I have caught 34 species of fish on euro style nymphing techniques including salt, warm water, temperate, and cold water fish. The technique can easily be adapted to steamers and even used with a spinning rod. The key to the technique is being able to control a natural in current.

    Speaking to the OP, Unless you are a fly purest, I would recommend you separate the technique form the fly rod and learn to use it on a long spinning rod and light line. It is much easier to control the drift without dealing with the fly line. I use 9 and 10 foot spinning rods that were built from fly blanks. They are a dream to fish in deep water and heavy current. Once I got the drift, weight, depth control, and strike detection down, I switched back to the fly rod and every thing just fell in place.

    Very interesting. All the info I have seen is for trout.
