Re: Nymph Rigs
When I fish two nymphs, I like them to be fairly close together so that it looks like a hatch in progress.
Same thing with nymph and a streamer. I want the streamer to look like it's about to pounce on the drifting nymph and appear to be unaware of the trout.
When I fish a cast of wet flies, I want to cover the full water column. The weighted point fly acts like an anchor dragging the bottom with the first dropper floating mid level and the second dropper dapping on the surface.
You need a long stout leader to do this, 12' plus but it's most deadly
I probably fish two streamers the most. In the saltwater surf nearly all the time, but also in undercuts on trout streams
The point is just to get noticed and see what the fish want for dinner
