Arriving in November is our hugely anticipated TechNymph range of dedicated Euro Nymph fly rods. Our current Nymph 3.4 | 10′ has been in service for the past 3 years, and has helped us to take all your feedback, advise and tips into account when creating our next generation fly rod.
Built from the ground up, using high tech SK carbon and a slim blank design was the foundation for the TechNymphs. The design focuses heavily on recovery rate, sensitivity, backbone and low physical weight.
Recovery rate is rapid, while the sensitivity running from the tip through to the grip provides incredible feedback. Decent backbone was another focus area, the sensitive tip lets you feel the take but its the rods spine and low down power that gets the fish into your net. Each of the models have been individually designed for their weight class, the 5 weight has a snub nose grip which is easier on the hand when fighting fish in stronger conditions and provides a good point of power. The 3 weight is much more delicate and focused, as such we built a beautifully low profile half wells grip that fits snugly into your hand while giving it that delicate pin point accurate feel.
Guide placement and count is very different to that of normal fly rods especially when you look at the competitive side of Euro Nymphing. We chatted to South Africa’s top anglers to get their recommendations on sizing, placements and numbers of guides. The result is a rod that is so focused, so balanced and built for being the very best Euro Nymph rod in its class. The new TechNymph range sets a new standard for technology, looks and performance when it comes to a dedicated Euro Nymphing rod in South Africa.
We are extremely proud to announce the build below and share the details on these fly rods.
