Orvis Fly Fishing
What Is Nymph Fishing?
Why do people nymph? Because they flat out love catching lots of fish. Nymphing is the most productive way to get a trout into the net, time after time, situation after situation, and river after river. So it’s worth your time to become proficient in this art.
Unlike dry fly fishing, where you replicate the adult stage of a bug that’s drifting on the surface of the water, nymphs aim to imitate the insects’ subsurface stages as they grow and mature in the cracks and undersides of rocks.
How do I fish nymphs?
Since we’re no longer casting “weightless” flies, the practice of indicator nymphing means our casting can be less than graceful.
Other ways to fish nymphs
Nymph fishing is something every trout fisherman should master. While consistent dry fly or streamer fishing isn’t always available, there are always drifting insects around for fish to feed on—and for you to imitate with a nymph. That’s why nymph fishing is so productive. It can put fish in the net even when nothing else works.
