THE Czech and European Nymphing Rod!

Picked up the 10' 4wt HSD and I'm very impressed with the build quality on it! The cordura tube is not round but more of an oval and it doesn't roll! This subtle detail is a huge benefit!
The rod blank itself is an attractive metallic flake gold/gray. The reel seat is skeletonized and the rod blank actually extends to the butt cap.
More importantly than looks, the rod is ridiculously light and can be held high to work your fly through tight spots in a river. The added length allows you to reach out and keep direct contact with your fly which allows you to feel even the lightest of bites.
This rod, when teamed up with a DT fly line, is a great dry fly rod as well. The soft tip allows you to gently drop your fly on the water and the added length gives you the ability to cast your dry further than other light fly rods.

Great rod for trout

The soft tip and stout spine in the lower 1/2 of the rod combine for an excellent trout rod.
The extra length really helps high stick, or to mend the suspension nymph rigs. Great line control is a tremendous benefit.
The extra length and stout lower sections of the rod also expands the range when casting longer distances. Nymph rigs under an indicator will really soar.
It feels a bit tip heavy when paired with a light reel, so I've upsized to a Konic 3.5. Right now, I have a dt 6 wt line and have been getting great results. I'm considering a nymph line in 5 wt but have a hard time going away from what's worked so well...
Overall great rod, and the "go-to" rod in my quiver for slightly bigger water. (On small water I prefer short fiberglass.)
Highly recommended for most trout fishing, especially nymphing short or long line.
