    Default Letís talk nymphing.

    Mainly because Iím trying to learn it! Hereís my deal, I prefer the smaller mountain streams, but my fishing buddy doesnít. He has taken me under his wing to try to teach me to fly fish...primarily using weighted nymphs. He prefers the larger, tailwater rivers, such as the Clinch and the Hiwassee. I canít detect strikes! Iíve tried fishing a shorter, tighter line. Iíve also tried using an indicator. Iíve caught several fish, but I had no idea that they had hit. I almost feel that I caught the trout accidentally! Iíve watched him, and tried to copy him. He does not use an indicator, but has no problem feeling the strike. What am I missing?

    I'm not much of a trout guy, but I've done enough to know strike detection can be tough. A lot of the "Euro nymphing" guys use "sighters" (bright-colored mono with many tiny coils that look like a spring.) I think the George Daniels book that 8fishermen mentioned would be a good investment to learn the very latest methods. At least you have a mentor.

    Thanks for the info! This is something that I’m going to learn, if it takes the rest of my life!
