Re: Nymphinng Help (I stink at it)
Late to the party, but here goes anyway
Fish the seams and make sure your nymph is hitting bottom occasionally. Most people don't get thier nymph deep enough, this can not be said enough, you gotta be near the bottom.
If you get your indicator on the seam (I try to keep it on the slow side of the seam), and you are ticking bottom occasionally, and you are in water where fish are present, and have a fly that is anywhere similar to what the fish are used to eating, you will get fish.
No need for elaborate patterns, standard copper johns, PTNs, prince nymphs, wooly buggers, hares ears, etc.
just my opinion,
ex·pe·ri·ence noun \ik-ˈspir-ē-ən(t)s\
1. the fact or state of having been affected by or gained knowledge through direct observation or participation
2. that thing you get just moments after you needed it.
