I have been fly fishing for a little over a month now. I absolutely love it and love this forum. I have gotten much useful information. I have a question. I have used dry flies (limited), woolybuggers, and clauser minnows. I have yet to try a Nymph. What is the application for fishing a nymph? Lake/River? Bass/Trout/Panfish? How do you fish them? Upstream retreive/downstream float?
I hear them mentioned, but no details as to their application. If someone can give me a short narrative on the use of a nymph, I'd greatly appreciate it.
