If you’re looking to get into Euro-nymphing, or if you want to add to your arsenal of fly rods, which rod should you choose? Orvis ambassador George Daniel walks you through the pros and cons of 2-weight and 3-weight models, explaining when and why he prefers each for specific angling situations. So think about the kinds of water you fish, as well as the kinds of flies you’ll be casting, and then choose the right tool for the job.
George Daniel operates Livin On The Fly, a guide service in State College, Pennsylvania. He is also an Orvis ambassador and the author of Strip-Set: Fly-Fishing Techniques, Tactics, & Patterns for Streamers, as well as Dynamic Nymphing.
