Thomas and Thomas Contact Nymph Rods


I've been fishing a prototype of this rod since 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. The exception is the 10' 8" 6 weight which is currently only available with an uplocking reel seat but is a great steelhead nymphing rod.

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.

Free Tactical Fly Fisher European-leader with the purchase of any model. Add the leader of your choice to your cart after adding the rod and the leader discount will be applied at checkout

T&T Contact 10'8" 3 wt

This rod is so enjoyable to fish and exquisitely balanced in the hand that I have a hard time imagining it will ever be replaced in my quiver of rods. I appreciate Devin's candor in fielding my questions by phone. His professional service have earned my future business.

Thomas and Thomas Contact fly rods

I ordered two Thomas and Thomas Contact fly rods from Devin; one in 3 weight and another in 4 weight. The shipping was quick and the customer service outstanding. Thomas and Thomas fly rods have a stellar reputation, and I am sure that we will enjoy these euro nymphing rods for years to come. Looking forward to the first cast!
