Re: Nymph fishing without indicators
While I use them alot, it is not always because I need to see the fish take my fly, more often than not it is to stear my nymph by mending, so I know where it is. Personally I have no opinion on the use of them, bigger worries on the water. I know some folks think that not using them makes them somewhat superior, I have heard them refer to themselves as "Purists" but honestly if we were Purists we would be fishing with a rod made of two sections of Hazel wood and one section of willow or apple, with a horse hair line and wet flies. So whatever your choice just enjoy it with no guilt.
Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.
