Default Re: steelhead nymphing rig

Dennis, thanks for the video...a good laugh to start the day...

As far as nymphing goes, I rig a 2 fly set-up. Leader is 9 to 10 foot, with a dropper tyed in where the tippet is attached. Usually put and egg pattern on the dropper and a small stone or caddis larvae on the point. Add enough split shot to tick the gravel and I'm good to go...If I'm in a spot that has a lot of rubble that I'm snagging up on I'll add an indicator for depth control.

Dan
