    Euro Nymphing? You can't touch this...

    Looking to Euro Nymph? At 10 1/2 feet and a 3 weight, IMHO this Cortland rod is the perfect length, weight & action, and at $219.95 is a STEAL! You cannot touch a rod this good at a price anywhere near this low. Balances perfectly in your hand, throws both light & heavy weighted flies, turns over long leaders when necessary, protects your tippet, and helps keep the hook from popping out of the trout's mouth. LOVE this rod! Also makes a killer wet fly/soft-hackle rod.

    The Ultimate Book on Nymphing!

    I've read as many books on nymphing as I could get my hands on, and this one is the best ever written on the subject. With mentors such as Joe Humphreys & Vladi Trezbunia, growing up in central PA, and being on Flyfishing Team USA & competing internationally all over the world, I guess George Daniels could not help but pick up a thing or two.
