What rod weight/length/action is best for nymphing
Getting back into fly tying and fishing after a lengthy absence I would appreciate some help and a recommendation for which rod to try.
Coming from a time where rod choice was pretty well limited to 7wt 8-1/2" glass I find all the rod options a little overwhelming.
What rod weight/length/action would you recommend I look at?
Most of my fishing is done in small rivers for smallmouth bass that run 10” to 14” in length.
I use nymphs 75% of the time; 15% for small streamers and wet flies; 5% hoppers and poppers and 5% dries. Hooks are typically #16-#10.
Thanks in advance.
