Adams Fly Rods are made in Spain and developed by passionate nymph fishermen with a lot of heart and passion and tested extensively on the first-class rivers of Catalonia. And for their popular Euro Nymph rods, Adams now finally presents the matching accessories. Like the Euro Nymph Mono Line.
The Adams Fly Rods Euro Nymph Mono Line comes on a handy 100m spool and therefore is sufficient to make a whole range of nymph leaders - or simply to fit onto the fly reel completely. One of the special features of this monofilament is its white colour. 'White' is not only highly visible (especially against a dark background), but can also be custom coloured with the matching Sight Marker by Adams. This way you save yourself the trouble of knotting a conventional sighter and can eliminate potential weak points in your setup.
The most interesting features of the Euro Nymph Mono Line from Adams, however, only become apparent when fishing. Because this leader material has really been designed for all facets of delicate Euro Nymphing. When using weighted patterns it is important that you maintain direct contact with the nymph during the drift. And this is exactly where this mono shows its strengths! Even careful takes by shy trout or grayling are immediately passed on through the material. This sensitivity is supported by the fact that, unlike many other nymph leaders, the Adams Euro Nymph Mono Line has no taper. It is therefore a level line and thanks to the large selection of different diameters you can find the right one for your fishery. Basically, the rule is: in strong currents, when using heavy nymphs and when fishing specifically for large brown trout, grayling or barbel, we recommend a larger diameter. And in clear, shallow running water for shy fish and when casting lightweight nymphs, you should use a thinner diameter.
Another remarkable quality of the Euro Nymph Mono Line from Adams is the extremely low memory. Once stretched, the line falls perfectly straight from the spool and even after extended use,no curls appear, which could have a negative effect on an accurate presentation. The very supple, smooth surface of the monofilament reduces friction in the rings, which means that longer, more precise casts can be made. On a matching Adams nymph rod we were able to achieve sufficient casting distances even with a small dry fly.
Alongside its impressive performance when casting and presenting a nymph, the Euro Nymph Mono Line from Adams also impressed us in terms of its durability and abrasion resistance. All the positive characteristics of this line were evident even after a tough test in Spain, where we fished the line for a week intensively. We could not detect any signs of wear. The strong core of the line results in a very reliable breaking strain and knot strength, which is why we were able to effectively drill even very large brown trout in strong currents with a lot of confidence. Here we also noticed the minimal stretch of the line - a very important factor for a high quality nymphing line. This is because a low stretch means that we can feel the take of a fish immediately and are able to counter its movements and head shakes with confidence. In addition, the minimal stretch of the monofilament supports hook setting. In short: the hook-up-rate is improved in comparison to other materials!
All in all, the Adams Euro Nymph Mono Line is a first-class specialist line for all types of modern nymph fishing. Euro Nymphing, Tight Line Nymphing, French Nymphing, Spanish Nymphing ... it makes no difference! This mono offers the perfect basis for a clean, precise presentation and reliable strike detection. The white colour also plays a part in this, which we were able to see excellently against various backgrounds and in very different light conditions. However, tracking the leader during the drift becomes even easier when this high-tech monofilament is coloured in a short section with the matching Sight Marker from Adams. This provides the nymph fisherman with several points of contrast that support the focus and make it easier to concentrate on the nymph leader. For rigging, we recommend connecting the Euro Nymph Mono Line directly to your tippet with a blood knot. Alternatively, you can use a small tippet ring as a connection, which allows you to quickly change the tip.
So if you are a keen nymph fisherman too, then you should take a close look at this line. The Euro Nymph Mono Line from Adams Fly Rods has everything we expect from a special nymph leader: Memory-Free, Low Stretch, High Visibility. And in combination with the matching Sight Marker, a complete filigree solution for a perfect presentation.
