I was looking to buy my first euro nymph/ competition fly rod in the $300 range. I have been looking at syndicate fly rods, courtland comp rod, eco shadow 2 , hanak Czech nymph etc. I was hoping for some input on different models of rods you’ve fished and liked and what wt and length you would recommend. Thanks! Jesse

I bought a cortland 10.5 3 weight, and thats the only nymph specific rod i have experience with, and the reason why is because It does everything I want it to. Will cast long leaders and heavy nymphs, a 3 or 4 weight line and dry fly, beautiful tippet protection, perfect hand balance. I couldnt ask for anything more from a rod, especially for 250 bucks. Its the only rod I use, even when I plan on throwing dries all evening

I use Cortland 10'-3wt rod. Reasonably priced although i would build another and purchase blank from Hook and Hackle.
