If the place is spacious and has several “dumps”, you must go to each one once and thoroughly enough fish first and always as discreetly as possible. That is, if we can leave the water and go behind that tree for situate near these means snags, much better to walk and wade deep or not even that, just cause a few ripples in the water will be distributed all over the place altering its placidity.

A tremendously productive mode is the Czech Nymph. It is too well well known as the competition has become fashionable fishing row and many fans practiced almost exclusively simply because it provides many great catches that cost his own fish them to dry, unless the Fisher is an experienced fisherman in dry fly fishing.

I do not like fishing in a row because with this mode I can not fly the line is what captivated me from the beginning when I was on my VHS. the first report fishing grandmaster Rafael del Pozo. To which saw a great utility if it is in the use of rods 10 feet fast action and powerful enough to fight with a big fish. So my favorite rod is a super fast action rod number 5. The Orvis Access and its more expensive counterpart Helios II offers extremely powerful rods that allow throw any away one by heavy nymph is a strike indicator plasticine.

This is the type of nymph fishing practice for many years and I find most appealing when resigned to fish dry form that is usually used for fishing. Plasticine indicator after trying all kinds of models has become my favorite. Plasticine indicator of Scierra brand, is best adheres to the fishing line without slipping and end glued to the nymph. I always use only one nymph because this way the artificial get moving and derive most similar as do natural. I put the indicator at a normal distance of 1.80 meters from the nymph, but I can if I should extend it to two and a half meters. This indicator serves me just to know where and how deep is sailing artificial. It never minds that the indicator is completely sink the fishing line, and transcends what matters is to display it. The indicator is therefore a very small, to get an idea, is the proportions of a button on a shirt. I place it on the line giving an elongated shape to hold much better and did not bother to launch. The indicator is very useful but also a nuisance. Get used to it. The launch and screening of the artificial nymph strike indicator takes some practice and allows project and put our imitation anywhere by far that is. The normal distance fishing usually 10-12 meters, but can fish over long distances up to 18 meters. If the river is in a normal flow at a maximum depth of 2 meters with a minor stream, a nymph of 2.8 g of tungsten will serve. On the contrary if it is tumultuous and deep waters, we can climb up to 3.5 grams is the maximum weight that I use. If the water is low water, then nymphs lower weight, between 1 g and 2 g are suitable. The wires in the case of important pieces better from 12 to 16. The lowest I use has a minimum length of 4.5 meters and a maximum of 5.5 meters.

The advantage, again, to use one nymph is that we can give life by giving small jerks slightly lifting the wrist or cane to give the impression of a natural insect trying to reach the surface to effect the metamorphosis getting rid of the exhuvia. With two nymphs, one sailing conditions the other with a slight drag nymph and also placed at the top, this always tends to roll with the main line making a misshapen and unattractive swimming. Therefore straight fishermen derive most of their catch when sailing nymphs deep in the vertical or when I finish the course, the last nymph rises to the surface. Nymph fishing is essential to gauge the artificial always go ahead of the indicator and of course bass line, otherwise the same thing happens with dry fly, the tedious drag or dredging. This can be useful at times, we had better to give life to the artificial giving striking with taps wrist, but if we give it a natural drift like an insect that is driven by the current (current and moves the nymph) drag It does not favor us. To achieve the nymph fall ahead of the indicator at a pitch in an inverted U shape, I use the set of rebound. As I noted in a previous article, its execution is very easy. Nymph is launched and stopped suddenly cane between 12h and 13h and the flag carried by itself the rebound will fall nymph forward to this. And this is all the basic technique to use.
