  1. Ten-foot fly rods have traditionally been the tipping point between high end and mid priced graphite rods. You really notice the advantages of lighter, more responsive and more technologically superior materials when you get to this length. You have a longer lever, and less refined materials tend to produce rods that flat out don’t cast well. They are so limber that on a waggle test you see the blank flexing in two places. The Scott A4 rods had some of that in the 10 footers. The Flex was an improvement, but the extra tip weight was a real consideration in those rods. The Session 1004 is the best casting 10 foot 4 weight at this price point that I’ve picked up. You still have a whole lot of bend in this blank, but the tip stays with the lower end enough that you can work out some good loops with proper finesse.

  2. The Session 1004/4 is your classic long, technical nymphing rod. It will be happiest fishing light nymph set-ups to picky tailwater fish. If you’re looking for a heavy metal nymphing rod this is not the best option out there. The rod loads very deep and flexes very evenly down into the butt section. You want to be careful about fly line pairings. This rod won’t like a heavier line like the SA Infinity; consider a lighter line like the Rio Gold or even the Rio Technical Trout if you are fishing really small flies.

  3. I would describe this rod as “medium action” rather than “fast action.” It was obviously designed for technical nymphing and will excel in everything that happens after the cast. Casting will require patience as the long, limber rod loads with a ponderous rhythm compared with other models in this series. Line mending and strike detection are the name of the game. The Session 1004-4 will fish an SA Trout Taper or comparable true-to-line-weight WF line, but many anglers will fish a level line on this rod. This rod will be highly effective for precision nymphing, but lacks versatility.
