***If the rod you're looking for is out of stock please email us!***

The same qualities that made the original Contact such an exceptional rod have been refined in the Contact II to create an unparalleled trout catching tool. The Contact II recovers faster and dampens quicker than its predecessor making for a much more accurate and sensitive rod. The updated guide spacing eliminates line sag and aides in fighting and landing fish. All rods come with a down locking reel seat unless requested in addition to a complete array of top-of-the-line componentry.

There is no other rod on earth like this, it is the ultimate fly rod for the technical trout angler.  


Here's what T & T has to say:

 After nearly three years of design and development, T&T is excited to announce the release of the highly anticipated Contact II series! Contact II rods are a fully redesigned second generation of T&T’s Contact rod series.

Contact II blank construction utilizes five different types of premium quality carbon and fiberglass fibers, bound together by our proprietary aerospace resin system. Aligning these fibers at strategic angles as we roll Contact II blanks improves accuracy, sensitivity, and strength. Components have been carefully selected to maximize performance and comfort. Improved guide spacing moves a “Low Rider” style stripping guide to the butt section of each Contact II, which decreases line sag from the angler’s hand to the first guide.

  •  Increased backbone power to improve hook sets and assist landing larger fish
  •  Optimized guide spacing with lowered stripping guides to decrease line sag between the hand and first guide 
  • Extra dense premium Flor grade cork grips increases feel and bite transmission
  • black downlocking hardware as standard with T&T’s trademark roll stamped logo and burled Black Ash spacer
  • Black  RECoil single foot snake guide 
  • Black hook keeper and winding check
  • Black “Low Rider” style stripping guide keeps line tighter to blank for improved strike transmission and accuracy
  • New low-profile rounded fighting butt for balance and comfort
  •  Stealthy brown and olive thread wraps.
  •  1086 Contact, primarily designed for migratory fish has a full well grip and larger diameter uplocking reel seat as standard configuration.
  •  Uplocking reel seat option available at an additional $25 charge on all other models.

T&T 10 foot 9 in 3 wt

Started contact nymphing with a Syndicate 10ft 3 wt. about 6 years ago. I started following Devin's videos and attempted some of his more advanced techniques with little success. I decided it was time for an upgrade and the difference is amazing.

I've been out with it 4 times now and am extremely happy with my purchase. The way it handles large fish was mentioned already but the way you can handle a 20in fish to get it out of the current and upstream of you (one of the many techniques I learned from Devin's videos) even on 7x is incredible.

Contact II

T&T contact II will show you all your weaknesses. This rod delivers as promised. Accurate ! I look at a pocket and my flies land exactly on target, everytime. Fish this all day and barely fatigue, balance is effortless. Save your money up and get the rod you will eventually own!
