Introducing the TFO Stealth Fly Rod
The new Stealth is the perfect tool to apply European, tight-line and high-stick nymphing method that each year is proving to be more and more popular. These rods are a great tool to get drag-free, repetitive drifts. The longer lengths help you cover a broad range of depth and distance.
TFO Stealth fly rods come in two different models:
- 10’ 2-weight – Incredibly lightweight at just 2.8 ounces, but with ample backbone.
- 10’6” 3-weight – Exceptionally lightweight at 3 ounces for a 3 weight, with plenty of backbone for larger fish.
It’s important to establish a good balance between the reel and a longer rod in European-style nymphing. If your rod is long and you lack an appropriate reel to balance it out around the butt section, your shoulder and arm could get fatigued. The TFO BVK SD 1 is a perfect match for both of these rods.
RiverBum has come out with a whole range of flies for this style of fishing. Our Euro Nymph selection features top quality flies specifically designed for this style of fishing. We also feature Scientific Angler sighter as well. Get some weight and you are soon in the game!
Of all the fly rods I own (and I do own a few!), The Stealth is my go to for nymphing conditions, especially in pocket water. If you’re interested in exploring this highly effective method of fishing, consider having one of the TFO Stealth fly rods available here at RiverBum. We also have all the line, leader, tippet and accessories to really dial in this style of fishing.
