From a humble beginning learning to fish on a branch of the Mekong River in Vietnam, to a highly rated (nationally ranked) teenage soccer player in the US, to guiding for steelhead on Great Lakes tributaries, to being the first Vietnamese fly fishing guide and the first international ambassador for Vietnam fly fishing, and to ultimately opening a guide service in south Florida and becoming a highly sought after guide for peacock bass and other exotics, Justin KNOWS perseverance and what it takes to succeed!
The Justin Nguyen Everglade Series represents these qualities of strength, perseverance, and integrity. Every design decision was made in consideration of these qualities while giving deference to the union of American spirit and time-honored Vietnamese culture.
Justin’s Everglades series rods have a faster action that many of our other rods. They have a very crisp and clean recovery in the tip which optimizes energy transfer from the rod to the line and enhances casting accuracy. Longer casts and accurate presentations in windy conditions are easily executed without giving up the ability to make short quick casts.
The Everglades are all 9-ft, 4-pc configurations in 5, 6, 7, and 8wt, are 100% US content, and feature:
- Natural color graphite blank that was designed and made by one of the finest fly rod blank designers in the country.
- Shop-turned cork burl grips (and butts in the 6 – 8wts)
- Three titanium REC Cerecoil stripping guides
- ECO coated Snake Brand snake guides
- Lemke skeleton reel seats (black anodized)
- Deep blue shop-turned reel seat inserts
- Deep blue guide wraps
- Custom sewn cloth rod sock
- A premium REC rod tube
The blue in the reels seat insert and guide wraps was specifically selected for its meaning in Vietnamese culture: Hope – Healing – Peace – and Long Life.
The Justin Nguyen Everglades Series is 100% made in America and, as always, carries our lifetime warranty.
