Hi Randy,

You might as well be speaking Greek because I have no idea what you are talking about. I have a feeling that is a Euro nymph rod. I'm a bit curious why you would buy a niche rod and not know how to set it up? I know you need a very long leader with a tippet ring ahead of a fine (5X - 6X) tippet. You also need some short of visual sighter. Get a copy of George Daniels euro nymph books and he breaks down how to rig it.

Yes, George Daniels' book is the place to start. Either the first one, or the newer one.
