T&T Contact 10’. 3 weight
I own a few euro rods by a few manufacturers. I purchased this rod to be able to transition to dry-dropper or just dries when the circumstances call for it. This rod is awesome I’m all aspects. Extremely light in hand, accurate and is great for nymphing or transitioning to dry dropper or dries.
I am in awe of the new (as of this writing) 10' #3 Contact which is a great dry/dropper as well as straight nymphying rod, even good with lighter streamers. It is versatile and absolutely flawless. The 10'8" #3 which I use as a true Euro nymphing rod is easy to cast and fish with great tippet protection and feel. I have also fished the 10'2" #2 for smaller water/lighter tippets/smaller fish and it is superb. The service through Tactical Fly Fisher has remained fantastic. The down-locking reel seats are optimal, and it seems well worth taking the time balance one's reels to these rods. These rods are incredibly crafted yet simple and elegant. I did break one tip section by accident once and Thomas and Thomas repaired it quickly and inexpensively for me.
