Thomas and Thomas Contact Nymph Rods
I've been fishing a prototype of this rod since last summer (2016). I firmly believe it is one of the top Euro nymphing rods on the market today. Despite the extra length at 10' 8" and 11' 3", these rods still balance very well in the hand.
Note: The models I have ordered have downlocking real seats specifically to improve rod and reel balance and reduce swing weight.
To feel what’s happening below the surface is a breathtaking sensation. T&T’s new Contact series nymph rods transfer every vibration from fly to fingertips. Contact rods utilize T&T’s proprietary StratoTherm resin, resulting in extremely light-weight and responsive rods that maintain superb durability and strength.
Flexible but quick-dampening rod tips nearly eliminate shock waves in the leader after each cast, allowing flies to track smoothly into the water, improving strike detection on immediate reaction bites. All Contact rods feature a strategic taper that generates positive hook-setting tension with minimal rod sweep, permitting anglers to effectively fish an increased range of rod positions and angles and cover more water with less wading.
