In this months Trout and Salmon Magazine Andrew Flitcroft tests and reviews the latest in the 10ft 5 weight generation of fly fishing rods.
By searching the web for a long, lightweight rod, there are numerous manufactures and prices that need to be surfed through to find the best rod for you. Trout and Salmon Editor Andrew Flitcroft gives his personal views on 14 of the most used 10 foot 5 weight fishing rods.
Here’s what Andrew had to say about the Airflo Streamtec Nan-tec rods
This is a great rod and versatile. Even given its heavier five/six rating, with a five-weight line it performed delicately, accurately and was effortless to cast, yet it has a little backbone for longer casts. It casts the six-weight line, too, but inevitably it was not as delicate. I would have no hesitation in recommending this to a bank and/or boat fisherman.
