    Default Re: Euro Nymphing in challenging conditions

    In the winter, those slow and deep areas are my favorite spots. That's often where the trout are wintering.

    I've had good luck using an all-mono rig and a single and heavy anchor fly tied on a jig hook to minimize snags. You basically dead drift the fly and/or crawl it back to you very slowly while maintaining contact with the fly. I've landed some really big fish in the winter with this method. The all-mono really helps with sensitivity.

    It's something I learned from a colleague, who wrote this post about Mop Flies.

    Lake setup with a type 3 sinking line also works to slow pull streamers through those situations.
    A creek and a couple hours are all the medicine most of us really need!
