Echo Carbon XL Euro Nymph Rod Review

Ryan Gabert Black Hills Fishing carbon xl carbon xl euro nymph competition czech nymph Echo echo carbon xl fly rod euro nymph euro nymphing rod Fly Fishing Gear Fly Rod Review tightline

We’ve been anxiously waiting for the Carbon XL Euro rods to arrive, and they finally have! I ordered one for myself as soon as they became available to order. The standard Carbon XL has been an awesome rod for us, and we had high hopes for the Euro Nymph series of Carbon XLs – we weren’t disappointed, to say the least. I got out and fished with mine a couple times over the past week, and have been rather impressed with it!

The Carbon XL Euro rod comes in a 10′ length, and is offered in both a 3 and...

It’s been awhile since Tenkara USA has come out with a new rod, but they knocked it out of the park with the new Tenkara USA Hane rod!

Tenkara has always been a simplistic and packable way to fish, but the new Hane takes packability to a new level.

The Tenkara USA Hane is the ultimate in packability – it...

New G Loomis IMX Pro Fly Rods

Ryan Gabert Black Hills Fishing Fly Rod fly rod reviews g loomis g loomis imx pro imx pro loomis new Review

Every few years a rod series comes out that blows us away, regardless of price – the new G Loomis IMX Pro series of fly rods are doing exactly that. Loomis really hasn’t been on a lot of people’s radar around our area for awhile, but that’s quickly changing after folks give the IMX Pro a wiggle and a test cast. Each rod in the IMX Pro series has a distinct taper and action that’s particularly suited to a certain style of fishing. These rods have a cool, classic Loomis finish and lettering on them that gives them a...
