Default Re: Nymph rig

There are two common methods used to tie the second fly to the first fly. One is the hook bend to eye method you are using, the other is eye to eye. The hook bend to eye route tangles less but the trailing fly will sometimes inhibit the action of the lead fly. The eye to eye method tends to get tangled more but both flies can move a bit more independent of the other. I started fishing nymph rigs with the flies connected bend to eye but as my casting improved I found that I could fish an eye to eye connected rig without snagging and tangling constantly.
