Re: Better nymphing....need tips
By the by, the "Utah bounce technique" is also called drop shotting.
You lose your shot on the bottom, not your flies.....
Lead is toxic to most all life forms.
It passes through the macroinvertebrates, to the fish, to us if we eat one (With the added jolt of build up along the way.)
(A great reason to eat little ones too, instead of the fatties....)
Please use tungsten shot if you fish this style.
More than a few guides there, started fishing this style so beginners can hook up.
Making this sport easier so you can handle forty fish in a day, makes me think someone is missing the point. I remember when we worked up, to doing that.
Not sure who I feel more sorry for, the fish, or fishermen.
Just so you know, I have people quiz me if I guide that way, before agreeing to hire me.
Poor form or progress, you make the call.....
And maybe give your local DFG a call too, it's not legal here.
