River Gem 10'0 #3/4 test report by Mickael Andrieu


Efficiency is the master  keyword to define the River Gem 10 '# 3/4 fly rod, you will find in this rod an impression of fishing out of the ordinary. 

Nymph fishing, dry fishing and wet flies are no doubt complicated to tackle with one single classic rod but this is not the case with the River Gem. Its action allows you to adapt to any fishing situation in the high and medium rivers. Soft and powerful at the same time, it is a very precise fly rod where the casts between 15 and 20m are clean and very discrete. 

With this fly rod you can tackle the serious subjects of our rivers. The trouts of the Dordogne river are very combative and specimens of more than 60 cm can be tackle even in 12 or 14 hundredths. Endowed with a reserve of power which has limit only the resistance of your tippet, I had the chance to push it in its entrenchments to the record of my record barbeau on the Dordogne of a size of 82 cm. 

In summary, a fly rod that I recommend to all fly fishermen who wants to have a feather in the hand and at the same time a formidable fighter of beautiful fish, the finest takes are detected and strikes insured.
