It’s what happens when you unleash American ingenuity on constantly evolving European-nymphing techniques. This, our four-piece, 11' 3-wt. Euro-nymphing rod, is the latest development. A supremely accurate 11' rod with the swing weight of a 10 footer, it’s got the unreal sensitivity to telegraph the exact number of times your nymphs kiss gravel. Translation: Significantly less missed strikes and more fish to hand. Note the 11' length— that extra 6" is crucial for intuitive drift control in extremely complex current seams with a softer tip to protect even the finest tippets. The product of strong collaboration, this is a high-concept rod born of a deep need from storied guides and their long conversations with our design team, and living proof our designers are perfecting rod development in lock-step with insightful anglers pushing the technique toward new territory. Made in Vermont.
