Re: Wetfly rods???
Czech nymphing is relatively simple. A 10' 3wt is fine. Traditionally, you use 3 flies & the heaviest being the point fly. Check your state regulations first on how many flies you are allowed.
For starters, lets keep it simple by finding a nice long run and fish the edge of the fast water where it meets the slower water. Lob the flies upstream an lift the rod tip as the flies drift by keeping the leader tight. No slack. As the flies drift pass, lower the rod tip to get a longer drift. At the end of the drift, hold the position for a second & let the flies drift up like they are surfacing, then with a quick snap, lift as if a fish is on....just in case.
Repeat. Then take a step or two upstream, and do it again. That's the basics.
There is a book out called, " Dynamic Nymphing " which is very good, written by a man named Daniels. I have the actors name Jeff Daniels in my head, and that isn't it. Lol.
Also, tradition again is no fly line on the reel. But that's up to you.
Here is a short video. I hope I don't mess this up.
The only thing human kind ever learned through history, is that through history, human kind has learned nothing.
