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

I and my kids mostly nymph fish with 9 1/2' to 10' fly rods for Trout, in #4 - #6wt. I started using longer rods in 1985 with a Scott "G" series 10', 5Wt. Here my son Michael is using a 10', 5wt. Loomis Streamdance on the East Walker River...I like the 6wts. for windy days on larger rivers in MT...
