More Info and Reviews of John Nagy's Custom Made Noodle Fly Rod

John Nagy's Noodle Fly Rod is the ultimate "high-stick" nymphing/steelhead fly rod !


> Here are some of its best features:
-It provides excellent length (10'6") for mending and controlling long leaders and floating fly lines when nymphing (Wulff floating triangle taper design is recommended for this rod).
<
-It's long/slow (moderate) action is ideal for playing big steelhead and buffering light tippets against steelhead runs and surges. Moderate action also protects against small hook "tear-outs".
<
-Smoothily casts split-shot, indicators and tandem rigs (as opposed to stiffer/faster blanks which have more of a "herk/jerky" motion when casting these rigs).
>
-Slower action throws larger casting loops which minimizes tandem rig/indicator tangles (as opposed to stiffer/faster blanks which cast tighter loops which can result in more tangles).
<
-Detachable 5 inch fighting butt provides leverage in playing fish and also takes pressure off wrist (onto forearm) when "high-stick" nymphing.
<
-Detachable 5 inch fighting butt allows rod to "switch" from single-handed cast to "double-hand assist" when needed (conventional roll cast, overhead double-hand cast for distance/power, spey cast for distance/power and avoiding rear obstacles on back cast).
<
-Over-size snake guides and tip-top which cut down on guide freeze-up in the winter.
<
-Over-size guides and tip-top also allow for easier casting in terms of line shooting ability and distance.
<
-Reverse-wells grip provides sensitive feel for detecting strikes and bottom contact.

-It is just plain darn fun to fish with and a blast to land fish on!

John Nagy's Noodle Fly Rod casts easily and makes mending a breeze. It allows me to use light tippets by absorbing the shock of that initial steelhead run. Great steelhead rod!
