Nam Original 4 piece spey rods are designed and built prioritizing functionality and simplicity above all else – a hallmark of Scandinavian design heritage. Premium materials and components are the guts and backbone, and the matte finish and plain cork grip give these rods a sharp, clean, distinctively Euro look.

Sweden-based Nam Products has a pedigree in Atlantic Salmon, so it comes naturally that their Original Series 4 piece two-handed rods have found a welcome place in the quivers of West Coast steelheaders.

Nam Original 4 piece spey rods are lightweight, durable, attractive, and come in several models that we absolutely love. As we spend quality fishing time with each of these rods we’ll add them to our inventory and describe them in detail on this page.

Nam Original 7137-4

Sometimes it takes a bit of tinkering with different lines to make a rod really sing. The first line I cast with the 7137-4 was the Beulah Aero Head (510gr, 47ft). I love casting this line and was really hoping it would pair well the the Nam. Over the course of the 2022 summer and fall steelhead season I fished this setup on the Lower Deschutes, Bulkley, and Skeena Rivers… anytime I fished a full dry line on medium to larger water.

Nam describes this rod as best used for light presentation at long distance. Compared to a few other 13ft + 7 weights I had been fishing, the Nam 7137-4 felt long – lots of leverage – and light, but with a solid backbone. The rod exceeded my expectations. It became an addiction, and has displaced a few other similar sized rods from my quiver. Over the ’22 / ’23 winter season I fished a 525gr Skagit (RIO Skagit Max Gamechanger F/H/I) with 10ft of T-8 and T-11, and it works super nicely for that also.

Nam Original 8124-4

Another standout rod in the Nam Original 4 piece family, the 12ft 4in 8wt. Most of my winter steelheading these days is on the coastal rivers of NW Oregon. Theses high gradient streambeds contain a mix of smaller pockets and pools, overgrown with maple, spruce, hemlock, and alder trees, and wider runs as the rivers ease out of the mountains and into the coastal floodplains.

The flies and sink tips are often large and heavy, and so are the fish that we pursue, so the ideal rod is usually an 8 wt in the 12 – 13 foot range for all but the most extreme situations.

Paired with the new Scientific Anglers Skagit Short head (540 grains), this rod is another intuitive stick that instantly makes you a better caster and angler. Whatever setup you were using, I’d bet a box of intruders that you would leave it at home after casting the Nam Original 8124-4.
