To those who Czech Nymph....

Post by ImaBetterFisherThanYou » Mon Feb 13, 2012 8:15 pm

Hola mes amigos,
Not sure as to how many of you do it, but I was looking to get your opinion on Czech nymphing? Only a few guys venture to do it around down south, as they often don't want to risk the possible event of losing there two and even three fly rigs. But a question to those who do, how do you prefer it? Personally I like going two, about 16 inches apart, with the bottom one bouncing of the bottom, sans an indicator (more exciting without one, in my opinion). The problem I'm facing though, is to cast upstream (with the innevitable risk of losing multiple flies in an outing), or to just swing it in with hopes of a good drift. I'm just letting it dead drift over nearby holes, but not getting as much action as others I've seen using the technique (dually noted that its not easy to massage an answer out of the fellow weekend warriors on the river). In my area BWO's are magic, just a matter as how to present it. So the question for you all, cast upstream, look for a more distant cast (not much considering the heavy strung BWO I use as an anchor) or dead drift?

Often people ask me as to how I like it. I respond with no hesitance, "Up the good ole' rear end. ;)".

Czech dry fly fishing is where it's at.

3. Maybe. It just depends. But i always use Adams.
