European Nymphing techniques have their roots in the Czech Republic however things have moved on in recent years. The driver behind both tackle and rod developments has been the competition scene, where it is important to fish fast with long leaders and two nymphs in fast currents! This method was adopted very quickly and witnessed by other national teams as the style-of-choice. France, Italy and especially Spain have evolved this technique to fish seemingly impossible runs and pocket water and produce fish!
Yvan Verge, 2014 Champion of Spain and captain of their national team, is a Marryat aficionado, winning on the new Tactical Pro Series.
Marryat have combined their extensive experience and know-how to develop the Tactical PRO 10ft 6in 3-weight NYMPH SPECIAL – a performance rod with versatile features:
A sufficiently long blank to make long drifts on the leader
A perfectly balanced blank to fish for hours with an outstretched arm
A lively blank to control a very long leader while presenting two nymphs
A blank that is responsive to the strike when using a long leader
Ring spacing designed to prevent the line from backing down the rod
A down-locking reel seat for better balance and line control
