Thomas and Thomas Contact Nymph Rods

$795.00 - $825.00

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 well in the hand. 

Note: The models I order have downlocking reel 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.

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

Recently purchased this specifically for steelhead fishing in Lake Erie tributaries. I have delayed reviewing until I have fished with it and caught fish. It is amazing how easy it is to cast nymphs using a 25 foot leader once one gets used to it. I have caught several 6 to 8 lb fresh run very aggressive steelhead and it protects tippets admirably while having sufficient backbone mid and lower sections to put on all the pressure your tippet is likely to sustain. I would not trade this for any other rod. I use barbless hooks and am amazed how easy it is to never lose contact and still not break tippets when steelies do their amazing antics.
Although expensive, I view it as an investment which will be used for thousands of hours of enjoyment.
