Re: Nymphing fast water?

There is no “trick.”

There are two types of skills, mental and physical.

Re: Nymphing question, indicator no indicator and depth control.

The problem as I see it is how fast they can "spit" a nymph. The reason sight fishing improves the hook up ratio is that seeing the take reduces the reaction time.
