- First session with the fly for the season up here turned out better than expected, says Guideline Product Manager @leifstavmo Practicing Euronymphing and loosing a lot of flies dredging the stony bottom. Getting pretty good at tying new tippets with droppers now…. But the rewards were encouraging and my new LPs rod was a blast to fish and fight these better than average fish on. It’s still very early days up here and the water is freezing cold especially with the warmer weather bringing on the snow melting. Not a great deal of surface activity. The odd adult Stonefly doesn’t seem to bring the fish up to the surface yet, so the name of the game is to get down deep with tungsten bead nymphs and find slower and deeper holding pools with just the right amount of flow to get a good drift with the flies. I set up my rig with two Stonefly patterns. The one on the point with an orange head that seems to attract attention. On the dropper, about 50cm up, I used a very lightly weighted black nymph in size 14. We built the LPs (Light Presentation Series) rods from scratch to offer the best balance between cost and performance. The results are a series of entry to intermediate level Euro nymph/light dry fly presentation rods that offer an amazing experience. The action can be described as a ”forgiving” Medium/Fast Flex that tolerates operator errors without sacrificing performance when loaded in the correct way. Tip sections are rigid, yet soft enough to manage very thin Euro style leaders without risking too easy break offs. All in all the LPs rods are super fun rods to cast, operate and to play fish with. It feels great to be back on the water again! /Leif
