Fly Fishing Video Shows How To Nymph Fish


Following is a good, basic video showing the steps involved for nymph fishing.

Nymph fishing is a challenging technique of fishing with the fly underwater.

Bring your waders!

First, some highlights from the video…

  • Estimate the depth of the water where the fish are.
  • Add small weights or a leader to your fly line, so you can position the fly at a depth you want it.
  • Wade into the water and cast downstream first, trying to encourage strikes.
  • Next, attach a strike indicator to the leader above the fly or onto the fly line itself.
  • Wade into the water and cast upstream. Watch the strike indicator through polarized sunglasses
  • Be sure to set the hook when the strike indicator bobs or goes completely underwater.

Good luck!
