European nymphing fly rods are built to be application-specific fly fishing rods for use with modern "euro-style" nymphing techniques. In general, these rods are longer than a traditional fly rod and have sensitive tip sections. Many euro-rods will also feature down-locking reel seat which help keep the bulk of the in-hand feel behind the angler's wrist. The combination of a light tip section and levered weight feel enhance the angler\'s connection between the fly rod and the fly.
We stock a wide range of European-Style Nymphing fly rods at our Bozeman fly shop and fly fishing outfitter. These rods will vary in price between $1000 and $179 and typically are offered in 3 and 4 weight variations. The 10' 6" or 10' length option in a 3 weight is widely considered as the most versatile configuration for European style fly fishing in the Rocky Mountain west.
The Sage ESN or Thomas and Thomas Contact II are among the most popular high-end European style nymph fly rods. The Sage SENSE, Orvis Recon, and G.Loomis IMX-PROE are great mid-priced options while the Orvis Clearwater and ECHO Carbon XL are starter options. Hardy also makes a terrific range of European-styled nymphing rods featuring Sintrix resins in their Ultralite LL family.
