CORTLAND COMPETITION NYMPH RODS
by Cortland Line Co.
European-style nymphing is taking the U.S. by storm, and Cortland's exciting new Competition Series Rods are fast proving a favorite for the task. Built using ultra-sensitive high-modulus graphite blanks, these rods are purposely weighted heavier toward the butt to help maintain the optimum 45-degree angle without tiring your wrist, and their stealthy matte black finish helps dampen vibration to prevent shock waves when presenting the fly. With black single-foot guides that are oversized to ease leader knot transfers for fishing short distances, and a handle that's thin, with an ergonomic taper that allows an angler to touch a finger against the blank for enhanced strike detection, these 4-piece rods include hook keepers and fighting butts with hard cork bottoms too.
