Like a lot of fly anglers of late, I’ve started to employ longer leaders when I nymph, in the fashion of the tried-and-true European nymphing techniques that have been winning fly fishing world titles for decades. I was so pleased to see that American competitive fly fishers Lance Egan and Devin Olsen have now produced a video instructional guide to European nymphing techniques that really work and that will help you catch more fish than the more traditional American “dry-dropper” techniques that a lot of us learn when we start nymphing in earnest.
These two guys have a way of simplifying the process and explaining it in a really helpful manner—I’m dying to get on the water and ready to put this good information to use as soon as I can. Enjoy the trailer to the video, and you’ll see for yourself why Americans are becoming a force to be reckoned with in international fly fishing.
