G-Loomis NRX Fly Fishing Rod 1203-4 FLY GREEN
A light, powerful, fast-action specialty rod designed for the many varieties of Nymphing techniques where long, light leaders are used to catch pressure-sensitive trout. It has a light, responsive tip while the lower 3/4ths of the rod is stiff to help you drift nymphs, weighted or unweighted, through likely feeding areas. This 3-weight version is for light leaders and smaller trout. NRX makes this rod extremely sensitive, a huge advantage for any nymphing technique.
Extremely fast, 10-foot, 4-piece rods with light, sensitive tips to help anglers make short, accurate casts for drifting nymphs. There are myriad nymphing techniques, but the main thing is line/fly control. When Czech nymphing, anglers actually lob weighted nymphs upstream of the target area and then, using the extra rod length, and long, light leaders, guide the flies along the bottom, almost pulling the rig downstream. When “dead-drifting” nymphs the extra length and extrafast action helps improve casting accuracy and line mending while giving you quick hooksets and positive fish-fighting control. Drifting nymphs, weighted or unweighted is a deadly technique. There are probably more trout taken with nymphs than any other method. The Czech Nymph technique has quickly gained a following in the U.S. as anglers discover different ways to fool pressure-sensitive trout. No matter how you choose to fish a nymph, these rods will improve your results.
