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. Also with the new REN series, you can feel the innovative spirit of the Scandinavians in the finest way.
REN - The most modern blank technology, packed in a traditional, Scandinavian design
The REN Blanks are made of a unique graphite blend with incredible tensile strength. This makes it possible to equip the rods with a very light, fine tip that combines a high level of precision with extreme sensitivity. The non-progressive medium to deep action in the main part of the blank provides a balanced casting feel. The result: very high line speeds without sacrificing finesse. Already on the first meters of the line, the rod is loaded, even without having to frantically "flail" the rod.
The thin blank made of modern carbon fiber presents itself in a traditional dark brown finish. Perfectly crafted and with the utmost attention to detail. Built up is the chic blank with ultra-light but robust snake guides and a stripping guide, of course made of titanium. The cork handle is, as we already learned to appreciate from the previous NAM rods, one of the best on the market. Delgado cork in absolute top quality, which fits perfectly in the hand and passes the test of time with bravura. The black anodized aluminum reel seat and the beautiful maple wood spacer on the lightweight models wonderfully round out the harmonious, traditional Scandinavian look of the rod.
The REN single-handed rods from NAM belong without question to the absolute top class and are developed from front to back by true fly fishermen. The incredibly light rods are especially aimed at demanding salmonid anglers. From fishing for trout and grayling in small streams, over tricky stillwater fishing, to large, anadromous salmonids in rivers and on the coast, the REN series covers all areas of use and impresses with the highest quality and functionality.
And travel-loving fly fishers can be especially happy, because the REN fly rods come in a travel-friendly, 5-piece design and can be safely stowed in your luggage.

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.
