    Default Syndicate Rods

    Does anyone have experience with fishing a Syndicate Competition Fly Rod or another competition rod (Cortland, Sage, Echo)? If so, are they appropriate for high-stick nymphing in the park? What are advantages and disadvantage? What lines are appropriate to use with them?

    Had one (11' 3wt) for a little over a year and love it. I use it in the park and on tailwaters. Only time I don't use it is drifting or fishing warm water. If I only fished the park, I might go down to a 2wt as it will really feel more like a 9' 3wt.

    I haven't had the opportunity to fish a Syndicate rod yet, but I do have a 10' 4wt TFO BVK that I love for tightlining. It is my go to through the cold months in all stream types. I didn't realize how nice the longer rod is until I was nymphing with my 8'6" not long ago and was quickly reminded how essential it was to be able to reach over some currents to get the right drift.

    I like the 4 wt because it is versatile for multiple water types, but I would back down to a 2wt if I was just using it in the park.
