There is perhaps no method of trout fishing more synonymous with wading than nymphing. Nymphing is not ""hard"", by definition. You float a bug underwater and hope it hits a trout in the nose. Like anything else though, being a great nympher takes lots of practice, skill and the correct tools. Consider the Nymphster your shortcut in the tool department. Strong, long and extremely sensitive, this rod will allow you to pick up on the slightest of takes, while giving you enough reach, backbone and fighting power to land the fish of a lifetime."
