Default Re: Nymph rig for Western Carolina

Don't know that there's a universal answer. Distance from fly to indicator is entirely dependent on the water you are fishing (depth and speed in particular) and the size/weight of the nymphs (and weight/shot) you are dredging. The nymph needs to be bouncing, not dragging, the bottom (thus the old saw if you're not hanging up occasionally, you're not getting deep enough) with the indicator staying within reasonable and visible contact.

Seven-to-eight feet seems like a LOT, though.

Having said that, I should add that I hate nymphing.
