10' 5" 3wt - The Big River Euro Rod.
Made for Euro Nymphing on big rivers.
Our rods are crafted exclusively for Bear Family Members. Find out more here. Family members can Contact us to Order.
With a background in competition fly fishing and a deep understanding of euro style techniques (our co-founder literally co-wrote the book), we know what makes a spectacular nymphing fly rod. The Ursa Major 10' 5" 3wt is the perfect tool for fishing long leaders on big rivers. These rods have exceptional sensitivity which will protect even the lightest tippets but have a backbone that will handle big fish in fast water with ease. The extra length increases your reach and control when fishing at a distance which is why we say this rod is best suited to larger rivers.

Your fly rods journey.
We have sourced the finest components from around the world to produce the purest fly rods on the market today.
Your blank is made in Spain by top rod makers Maxia, where it has been designed and used by world champions.
Your reel seat and Guides come from a small company in China providing exceptional quality products. Honestly, they are the lightest and strongest we have ever found!
Your cork handle comes from Portugal, they produce the best cork, end of story. The handles are then turned in Denmark by our friend Jesper. He turns the best handles we have ever seen.
Your rod tube and rod bag are both made by hand in England.
All of this is then pieced together in our workshop right here in the United Kingdom. Where we build one rod per week to ensure that everything is completed to the absolute highest of standards.
