    Give it a reasonable shot if you have proper water and fish at close range. You will never know if you don't try it!

    Czech nymphing is the best way to get fish out of pocket water because of the short drifts and complex currents. The nymphs sink fast and strike detection is better. A fishing spot with bigger riffles and pools won't fish well that way, so either bring leaders or spools set up for long range nymphing. I indicator nymph with my 10' 4wt all the time; I find it works better than a 9' 5wt on bigger water as long as it isn't windy. Your 10' 5wt should be very versatile.

    Tried it out Saturday and found it a fun rod. I am not a nymph fishermen yet but I will keep trying. I like the Czech style a lot. I might go more that direction than indicator style, but until I do it more I will keep trying both.
