SLN is short for “Short Line Nymphing”, also called Czech or European style nymphing. For the first time there’s a rod developed for short line nymphing in our local NZ rivers. It has a sensitive tip to keep you in control and tell you when to strike, but it has more power in the butt section than normal for the same style rods developed overseas. The reason is simple – our fish are bigger. The extra length gives you more control of the line on the water. The sensitive tip makes the rod load quickly on short casts, and protects the tippet when playing fish. The added power in lower end of the rod assists on longer casts and gives you lifting power when you need it. The SLN Master also comes with a small insert piece that effectively converts the rod from a 9'6 to 10'0 giving you two rods for the price of one.
