The Cortland Competition MK II Nymph was developed in cooperation with renowned competition flyfishers that were part of the Cortland pro team.
The rods were developed for the different euro-nymphing techniques. With a length of 10,6´ feet the rod helps you to follow the drift of the nymph with your arm. It also helps you to bridge different current speeds to present the nymph without any drag.
The sensitive tip and the blank made of high modulus carbon fibre enable you to feel even the lightest bite. Nevertheless the blank has a lot of power in the bottom section to handle large trout and barbel. in addition to that the rod has an ergonomic fighting butt that makes drilling large fish more comfortable.
The downlocking reelholder allows a better distribution of weight. This is really important when high sticking to reduce the impact on your shoulders.
The “half-wells”-grip is made of premium portugese cork.
On this rod Cortland used guides that were specifically designed for reducing slack in your line or leader. This improves your “line management” and lets you notice even small strikes.
The rod comes including a rod sock and an orange rod tube.
For us the Cortland Competition MK II Nymph is one of the best fly rods for the different euro nymphing techniques. It doesn´t matter if you are czech nymphing, spanish nymphing, polish nymphing or french nymphing!
