Sage's new European Style Nymph (ESN) rod is designed to fish most styles of European tournament nymph fishing. Whether it is Czech, Polish, French or Spanish nymph fishing, this style of short line, contact nymph fishing is quickly gaining popularity in North America.
ESN fishing is a highly effective method of catching fish in high-pressure streams where trout are weary of anglers. The ESN has a brand new taper which is made with a unique compound tapered mandrel. This light-weight rod has a completely new slim profile and a very supple, sensitive tip. This combination allows the angler to feel the take and still have the power to quickly set the hook.
**We have also been using these for indicator style fishing on small creeks around here including the Mad. They are excellent light nymphing rods...even with an indicator and shot etc. This may well be the most exciting rod introduction for 2012!
