DEEP and FAST nymph rigs?
Well sunday I took my annual trip to gunpowder falls where the water was somewhat high and incredibly fast. Fast as in, almost impossible to walk upstream in 1 foot of water. I saw a lot of deep deep pools, like 5+ feet deep where I kept seeing movement.
I tried a size 14 copper john with a small steel shot, and it only made it 2 feet under before the current carried it past the pool.
I only got 30 minutes of fishing in otherwise, cause people in canoes, kayaks, and float tubes kept coming bye every few minutes.
So my question is, whats a good nymph rig for deep and fast water?
I used a size 14 weighted hares ear on a 9 foot leader.
My set up is:
8'6 5wt redington crosswater
Cabelas prestige wf floating line
Hobbs creek large arbor
