A unique fly rod series designed for a special style of tournament stream angling in Europe where speed and line control are paramount to success. These are extremely fast, 10-foot, 4-piece rods with light, sensitive tips to help anglers make short, accurate drifts with weighted nymphs. The technique requires very little in the way of traditional casting. Anglers flick weighted flies upstream of the target area and then, using the extra rod length, and long, light leaders, actually guide the flies along the bottom, under tension. The extra-fast taper in these rods provide a quick hook set, so anglers can react before the fish spits the fly. The 3-weight is for smaller fish and protecting very light tippets. The 4-weight is for slightly heavier tippets and larger fish. The technique is quickly gaining a following in the U.S. as anglers discover new ways to fool wily trout on pressured waters.
