You don't....Why do you need a special rod for 'nymphing'? I don't understand why a normal rod cannot be used to cast a sinking fly as well as a floating one..... I don't see the difference. What is so special about a 'nymphing rod' and why can't that rod be used for fishing dry flies as well as wet ones?
One of the Winston blanks (BIIX) was bought from Renee at Foxtons. The only rod that they left was a Winston 7' 3wt that I built on a WT blank that I also got from Renee. I have been building a number of glass rods on Taniwha's blanks, that I had planned to use instead of superfines and cult. Guess I'd better get a move on.Nightmare! I'd get a quote from someone like Renee at Foxtons or Stan at Alba Rods. The worst thing I lost was all my flies - hundreds of hours of tying nevermind the materials involved.
