Thread: Wetfly rods???

  1. Default Wetfly rods???

    Anyone ever seen or used one? I just purchased a 10' 3 wt for $66. Hoping to figure out this Czech nymphing thing. I'm not necessarily cheap, but I do want to retire early!

    Czech nymphing is relatively simple. A 10' 3wt is fine. Traditionally, you use 3 flies & the heaviest being the point fly. Check your state regulations first on how many flies you are allowed.
    For starters, lets keep it simple by finding a nice long run and fish the edge of the fast water where it meets the slower water. Lob the flies upstream an lift the rod tip as the flies drift by keeping the leader tight. No slack. As the flies drift pass, lower the rod tip to get a longer drift. At the end of the drift, hold the position for a second & let the flies drift up like they are surfacing, then with a quick snap, lift as if a fish is on....just in case.

    Repeat. Then take a step or two upstream, and do it again. That's the basics.

    There is a book out called, " Dynamic Nymphing " which is very good, written by a man named Daniels. I have the actors name Jeff Daniels in my head, and that isn't it. Lol.

    Also, tradition again is no fly line on the reel. But that's up to you.


    Here is a short video. I hope I don't mess this up.

    I fish a 10' 4wt with indy, and tight line methods as well as throw dry's with the rod. I have fished some wet fly drifts with it and found the length, as with the nymph stuff, to be an advantage for mends in the drifts. My rod has a tip which is sensitive enough to suit me.

    Most of my use has been on tail water systems using single and dbl drop indy rigs as well as some tight line while wading. I have thrown some single and double wet fly stuff while wading also.

    I just bought the Dynamic nymphing book by George Daniels, it's a very good book!


    When I said Wetfly I meant the brand, not the fly.

    It appears most responders think you were posting wetfly generically.

    The brand "Wetfly" makes fly rods - I have one of their "hydrogen" fly rods and it is a decent rod. Nothing revolutionary but I think I bought it a few years ago for about $100 discounted on "The Clymb" and its a decent product. Actually the Cordura Rod Case it came with was the best case I ever saw as it had a nice attached carrying handle. Quite frankly I have so many other rods that aside from lawn casting it doesn't make it to the river often at all -
    "However, I must warn all beginners that the dry-fly game is an insidious one. It creeps upon you unawares, and unless you fight the tendency you will eventually fish in no other way." Ray Bergman, TROUT 1938
