Default Re: Czech style nymphing.. What is your experience?

I have been using Czech nymphing as a complementary skill, as Silver Creek mentioned, when nothing else works or when I see a situation where the skill is effective, namely fast and deep pools.
Speaking of rod, I have been using 4wt 10 foot rod as my go to rod, and am thinking of getting a 4 wt 11 foot, but considering the heavier weight of the rod and extra one foot, I am not sure whether I should get it.

Coming back to the 10 foot 4 wt rod, it has been so versatile in that I can throw dry flies, nymph rigs, and streamers.

Silvercreek, you seem to be well versed in this method, have you ever any experience with a 11 foot rod? It seems to me that the rod can be effective in a big river, but can not be as all around as 4 wt 10 foot.
