Thomas & Thomas Contact II 1003-4 Fly Rod



The Thomas & Thomas Contact II 1003-4 fly rod is the ultimate euro nymph and high sticking fly rod for tight line nymphing long runs for big trout. The Contact II 1003-4 fly rod is designed to make the modern angler as comfortable as possible. From fishing small to big rivers, the Contact II 1003-4 provides anglers with unmatched accuracy, sensitivity, and strength. The Contact II blank construction utilizes five different types of premium quality carbon and fiberglass fibers, bound together by a proprietary aerospace resin system. These components have been carefully selected to maximize performance and comfort. Adjusting guides spacing moves a “Low Rider” style stripping guide to the butt section of each Contact II, this helps decrease line snag from the angler’s hand to the first guide. With the growth and rising popularity of Euro and Competition nymphing over the last couple of years, there is no doubt that the Thomas and Thomas Contact II fly rod is the future for all nymphing anglers around the world.
