Favorite 5 weight rod for nymphing?
Permalink  
 


My oldest son finally has a decent job and is looking for a 5 weight for nymphing.  He's thinking about a Sage, but frankly, for tossing lead that seems like overkill with a high price.  My favorite nymphing rod is a 4 weight St Croix Legend.  I've never used/tried some of the newer rods like TFO, Redington, Loomis, Echo, or even Cabela's.  I know that Sage, Thomas and Thomas, Orvis, and Winston are great brands and a little pricer.  I do have a big 7 weight Winston for steelhead but haven't fished any of the rest.

I would appreciate any of you talking about your favorite nymph set up in a 5 weight, including length.

Thanks for your help

Get a 5 wgt. TFO. For the money, it offers power to both buck split shot and an indicator , and the backbone for dealing with the occasional Putah toad. Spending hundreds of dollars to huck sinkers is a waste of money.
