    When it comes to nymph fishing, two important considerations should come to mind. First, a well-designed nymph rod should efficiently and effortlessly cast heavier nymph rigs. Secondly, the rod should be long enough to manage and mend your fly line to create a natural drift. Our New Zealand 10' #5 Nymph fly rod was designed specifically for nymph fishing. The extra length and adaptive action also makes for efficient roll casts, as well as single hand Spey casts. You'll be able to hit those hard to reach slots and ledges where the big fish hide and drift your fly in a very lifelike fashion. Add this rod to your quiver and you'll be able to catch trout when your friends are fishlessly scratching their heads.

    Love to nymph 4/2/2014 4:27 pm I already own a 9'#5 fly rod and it works for most techniques, but it's not great at anything. I mostly fish nymphs, so I thought I'd hunt down the right rod for what I do most. I looked at some longer five and six weight rods from the major brands. Stopped by the Leland Ranch in Sonoma and tested their New Zealand Nymph. It cast like a champ, roll cast well and with the extra length, I new it would mend. First time on the water changed my fishing experience. I had total control for once and caught way more fish than I usually do. I really dig this rod.
    Yes, Yes, Yes 12/12/2013 1:47 pm Sure, everyone wants to catch trout on a dry fly. There's no doubt about this. But, there are days when that's just not in the cards. For years I've just nymphed with my standard 9' #5 fly rod and I did catch fish, but something was missing. It wasn't until I visited the Leland Ranch in Sonoma did I truly understand that the right fly rod model makes all the difference. Admitting to myself that I do indicator nymph a lot, I decided to try the New Zeland Nymph rod on my next trip. It changed my life on the water. It's that good. Easy casts and mindless mends. I didn't know how hard I was working with my standard trout rod, until I fished the Leland rod. If you indicator nymph for your trout, this is the dream rod. It's also drop dead beautiful, too!
