Well I finally got out to the stream to test out the new Nucast smokin hot 4wt this weekend. With having two little kids fishing time has been tough but was really glad to get out for a few hours early in the morning.
The valley had some good rain and the streams are very full and it was perfect for nymphing and throwing small streamers and that is what I did.
Managed a few fish on nymphs and one good rainbow on a weltys wooly bugger, tied by my good buddy Bob.
As far as the rod review the smokin hot 4wt from Nucast casted small streamers effortlessly and had great action during the retrieval. Unlike some rod where you feel disconnected from the streamer, I felt constant tension from the current which to me is a key to success. It’s a beautiful rod and the casting and action is 2nd to none and competes with some of the much more expensive rods I’ve used. A very good rod for an even better price, check them out at Nucast.usa. I’m very pleased to be an ambassador of such a great fly fishing company.
