Here is a brand new Cortland Competition Nymph fly rod. This is a world-class rod and it is an excellent value. I primarily build custom fly rods and I am really impressed with the quality and performance of this rod. Once I have received your payment I will ship your rod out to you within 24 hours... sometimes sooner. Cortland's Competition Rods European-style nymphing is catching on in the U.S, enter Cortland’s Competition rod series. Built from high-modulus, ultra-sensitive graphite blanks, our rods are weighted toward the butt to help maintain the optimum 45-degree angle without tiring your wrist. The matte black finish helps dampen vibration to prevent shock waves when presenting the fly. Black, single-foot guides are oversized to ease leader knot transfers for fishing short distances. And the handle is thin, with an ergonomic taper that allows an angler to touch a finger against the blank for strike detection. These 4-piece rods include hook keepers and fighting butts with hard cork bottoms. Rods include a cloth rod sock and an optic orange rod case for easy location on the river bank. This rod is covered by the Cortland Lifetime Limited Warranty and I will include paperwork and rod registration instructions. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions.
