On the Water (Part III)

Today was mostly sight nymphing... small PTs and Kite's bare hook nymphs. Challenging fishing in the summer heat!



Beautiful water!! Vlad,
Challenging but you did well! Sight nymphing is definitely a exciting game! I love it too... everything is so subtle, and suddenly the surface just explode!

I have been thinking to go back to Czech nymphing lately. Maybe need a new rod for that... what do you think the affinity X blanks for the CZ work? Vlad.

Great photos, BTW!

Thanks brother... It was crazy hot on the water today, but I love the summer weather.

I think you can't go wrong with CTS. Affinity X blanks are available up to 10'6" (based on the catalog info.) Almost like a mini switch rod. Depending on the length, even though X is a fast taper (great sensitivity with nymphs), with longer length it might be actually perfect for CZ technique.


Cool! thanks for the info. Vlad,
I am thinking about the 3weight 10' model too... sensitivity is probably the most important factor I am looking for... I will email them and see what they say... Thanks!
