The names behind the brand NAM are not unknown to the fly fishing scene: Marcus Bohlin, Johan Sönderberg und Mikael Andersson (Mr. “Banana Fly”). No wonder that these rods are designed 100% practice-oriented and are convincing on all ends. Fresh design ideas and modern rod building technologies are incorporated in these rods, combined with state-of-the-art carbon fiber materials. For the first time, graphene crystals are used in these South-Korea made blanks. These crystals have a distinct and unique structure that renders the rod blanks extremely robust and light. The results of this unique material combination are rods that are not only light, but have an incredibly low swing weight. The difference is noticeable from the first meter of line that is casted out of the rod tip.
The 6-piece double-handed rods are especially designed for the travelling salmon anglers amongst us. The practical segmentation and small packing size do not negatively influence the action of the rod. Their performance is as convincing as the 4-piece version in every way.
This second generation of NAM rods were tweaked and twisted a bit to get even more usability and performance out of these minimalistic masterpieces. The new cork grip for instance has arrived on the highest level in terms of quality will be very hard to beat. The rod series covers all application areas of the modern salmon and sea trout angler: from short and light models for targeting sea trout in smaller rivers such as Mörrum or the renowned rivers of Tierra del Fuego (Argentina), over all-around rods for typical salmon rivers in Norway, Sweden, or Russia, all the way to powerful and long casting tools to battle the massive rivers and fish of the north. Every model of the series was specifically designed and adjusted to the respective demands of each fishery. The medium fast action of these rods will appeal to the casting style of many, not only Scandi style casters. Every rod has an indication of the specific casting weight so you will easily find the perfect shooting head for your new NAM.
The slim and modern carbon fiber blanks combined with graphene have a minimalistic, matte black finish. The addition of discreet, grey decorative windings creates a truly timeless look. Compared to the first generation of NAM rods, the new high-grade cork is even better and long-lived, its ergonomic shape makes it a bliss to hold and cast. The black anodized aluminum reel seat with the matching aluminum spacer perfectly complete the modern look together with the titanium coated snake guides.
The NAM 6-piece double-handed rods without question are amongst the top players out there, they are designed from salmon anglers for salmon anglers. All models have convinced us through their functionality and make the grade of a seasoned salmon angler.

A few words about the new “Delgado” cork:
Strictly translated the word “Delgado” means thin or slender. These thin barked trees are not as common as the thick bark trees making it very rare and highly sought after. Since the cork bark is naturally thinner and denser it has many advantages over the thicker cork bark.
Advantages with Delgado:
- The pores are much smaller so there is almost no need for filler material at all.
- No need for rubber-cork endings making the handle even lighter and still very durable.
- Thanks to the slower growth speed of the “Delgado” trees, the density of the cork material itself is slightly higher resulting in increased transmission of vibration between the blank and the cork, giving you better direct contact with the rod
It’s green with Delgado Cork:
It regenerates every 9 years, so it is completely renewable. Not only is it renewable, but harvesting the cork bark is actually beneficial to the tree itself in terms of lifespan because if left unharvested the cork bark can grow too thick and choke the tree resulting in premature death. Harvesting the cork don’t just allow the tree to live longer, stripping the bark also increases the amount of CO2 it can absorb from the air. So, it’s truly a win-win for the environment.
The glue that is used has no solvents or harsh chemicals in it and is also 100% Eco-Friendly.
