Default Re: keep losing flies!

Just keep in mind as a beginning fly fisherman......if you are nymphing and you DON'T occassionaly get snagged on the bottom and lose flies - you are probably doing it wrong. Meaning you have to make sure you have enough weight on your flies or leader so that flies are drifting off the bottom of the river - where trout do most of their feeding. Anytime you drift your flies and you realize you are never hanging up on the bottom...lengthen distance of your leader/indicator and/or add weight.
