    Is the Mystic good for dries, streamers and general fly casting or is it more of a Euro nymphing specialist? The prices and reputation of their rods are both good, but I want something that will be good in the wind and for lake fishing using regular fly lines.

    Thanks for any information.

    Sparse, It's a 10'3" 6wt fly rod that acts, like well, a fly rod, albeit a long one. I use it with 6wt lines and overweight 6wt lines. Euronymph rods are relatively specialized although some aren't, you can use it as such if you wish, I tightline nymph with mine all the time, being a 6wt means I can throw some pretty sizeable nymphs, wet flies and streamers. In fact I can pretty much use all my fly rods for all methods of fishing and do quite well. I think a fly rod that is specifically for and only for Euronymphing is pretty much a 1 trick pony.

    Mystic has a 30 day return privilege too. If you want more information I would contact the Company.

    While euro nymph rod makers will claim you can cross over- any rod dedicated to the task is gonna be a pretty horrible dry fly rod. Horrible indicator nymph rods as well- and not likely to be even a 5wt, let alone a 6. Conversely, a traditional 4wt dry fly rod makes a pretty bad euro nymph rod. You can do it, but it's really not the same thing.

    Still, I seem to do fine with them and don't feel like I'm missing much if anything at all. I try not to overthink these things, some prefer to over-complicate fishing, I guess some like to obsess over these issue's.
    If one wants to go straight euronymphing I would just used a fixed line Keiryu rod and be done with it, it's much more efficient. In fact that is generally what I do, never understood the need for that reel, I guess it's in the 'regulations' or something like that, it all seems a bit silly to me.
