Latest out of the shop. 10' 3wt 4pc Euro rod that has a nice simple clean look to it with down locking reel seat, all brown burl grip with just a 1/4" rubberized at the end and yellow wraps.

Love the down locking seat, they are just natural and tend not to loosen up.

Question... What makes a Euro nymph rod different?

Another piece of simple, elegant artistry!

Thanks Alan. Euro nymphing is a style of nymph fishing that is done with longer rods in the 10-11' range https://www.orvis.co...BCAAEgIQaPD_BwE The rods can still be used normally to fish dries and such, but most the guys that order the 10' 3wts I build are using them for euro style these days.

Hmmmm.  Well, the wraps will certainly pop under a bright sun.  Craftsmanship is top notch, as usual.

 

I really don't like yellow, so I can't say I like the rod.

Love the down locking seat, they are just natural and tend not to loosen up.

And they put the weight of the reel further back, making it easier to keep the rod tip up as required in Euro-nymphing.
