I’m happy to be presenting Critical Nymphing Concepts on Thursday, January 11 at 7:00pm. This event is hosted by the Little Juniata River Association and is open to the public. I hope you’ll join me.

This presentation covers the same topic as the upcoming Season Ten of the Troutbitten Podcast. Critical Nymphing Concepts is about the “why” and “when” of good nymphing. Beyond the skills necessary for great presentations, how do we know what to change, when and why? These are the critical nymphing concepts.

 

Enjoy the day.

Hi. I’m a father of two young boys, a husband, author, fly fishing guide and a musician. I fish for wild brown trout in the cool limestone waters of Central Pennsylvania year round. This is my home, and I love it. Friends. Family. And the river.

PODCAST: Critical Nymphing Concepts #6 — Line On the Water — S10, Ep6

PODCAST: Critical Nymphing Concepts #6 — Line On the Water — S10, Ep6

This episode is about tension and slack. It’s about how we manage fly lines and leaders on the water while nymphing. My friend, Austin Dando, joins me to walk through the tight line advantage of keeping line off the water and what happens when we give that up. Fishing greater distances often requires laying line on the water, and how we manage that line, how we plan for it, makes all the difference between a great drift and a poor one . . .

One-On-One Virtual Skills Sessions are Here

After months of work and preparation, I’m pleased to announce the launch of Troutbitten One-On-One Virtual Skills Sessions. This latest arm of the Troutbitten Project allows for greater connection with more anglers, readers, listeners and viewers than ever before.

These one-on-one skills sessions are held in our Troutbitten online studio, where we record the Troutbitten Podcast. Conversations are tailored to fit your interests, your questions and curiosities. These sessions are recorded (for your use only), and afterward, you’ll receive a video of our meeting, along with notes and links to more Troutbitten resources to help you keep learning.

PODCAST: Critical Nymphing Concepts #5 — Weight: The Fundamental Factor — S10, Ep5

PODCAST: Critical Nymphing Concepts #5 — Weight: The Fundamental Factor — S10, Ep5

Once you leave the water’s surface, weight is necessary for the presentation. Here’s what weights to choose, for nymphing, why and when. You can’t avoid it. Weight is the fundamental factor. Meaning, it’s probably more important than the fly itself. More weight or less is more consequential than what dubbing, feather or ribbing is wound around the hook shank.

We use all types of weight, and there are good reasons for all of these: tungsten beads, split shot and drop shot . . .

STREAMSIDE: MidCurrent Features 1 Million Troutbitten Podcast Downloads (an Interview with Dom)

A few weeks ago, the Troutbitten Podcast crossed the 1 Million downloads milestone. Spencer Durrant, the news editor for Midcurrent and host of the Unhooked Podcast, got in touch to ask if I’d answer a few questions for the occasion.

The Midcurrent publication is part of the glue that binds this industry together, so I was happy to oblige. Answering these questions also got me thinking about where this Troutbitten Project has been and where it’s going.

So as Troutbitten enters the year of its tenth anniversary, here’s a look into one of our favorite branches of this Troutbitten media company and how it became so important to the Troutbitten community . . .

What do you think?
