Default Re: What rod weight/length/action is best for nymphing

9' is a good versatile choice for nymphing as well as other uses in weights 4, 5 or 6. The action is not as important in short-line nymphing as having a sensitive tip to help you detect subtle strikes, but for other uses a medium-fast rod that fits your casting style can't hurt. Some folks who do mostly short-line, high-stick nymphing prefer longer rods up to 10', but they can be less useful for other kinds of fishing. You can make do with a shorter rod too, but once you get down below about 8 1/2 feet you are giving up a bit of usefulness for high-sticking.
