This Season Ten skills series is about the critical concepts of nymphing. In seven episodes this season, we’re covering the what and the why of nymphing. The techniques we work on are physical skills necessary to get great drifts and fool fish. But these nymphing concepts are about putting a reason behind everything we do.

Why do we make the changes? How do we adapt to meet the preferences of trout for the moment? This is the other side of the coin. And once you put all of this together, you have a full picture of what it takes to regularly catch trout on a nymph.

Importantly, these concepts apply to all nymphing styles, tight line, indicator or otherwise.

My friend Austin Dando joins me this season to walk through these concepts.

Season Ten Topics:

Ep 1. The Three Questions

Ep 2. More Influence or Less?

Ep 3. Suspension Advantages

Ep 4. Three Ways to Dead Drift — Three Zones to Cover

Ep 5. Weight — the Fundamental Factor

Ep 6. Managing Line on the Water and Floating the Sighter

Ep 7. Other Than a Dead Drift

Central Pennsylvania

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.

One rod length over and two rod lengths up. That’s the Golden Ratio. That’s the baseline, and it’s where trust in our drift begins. There are surely moments and situations that call for something different. But a good tight line style starts here, within the Golden Ratio of nymphing . . .

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 . . .

The performance between Hi-Vis monofilaments varies widely. Here are the properties I want most, and here are my favorite lines.

There are many options for hi-vis mono, but my preferences are specific. And for so long, I couldn’t find anything that checked all the boxes . . . until now.

  1. The why, in my opinion, is even more important than the doing. It’s what fuels the doing! I love the three questions and can’t wait to try them out in NM this weekend on a new river!
