The Ultimate Guide to Fly Fishing

The Basics of Fly Fishing

You might have heard that fly fishing is just for trout but nothing could be further from the truth. You can catch sunfish on a farm pond with fly tackle. You can catch bass and pike. You can even use a fly rod in salt water for fish like striped bass, bonefish, and even huge gamefish like tuna and marlin. It just takes a little adjustment to your tackle. Enjoy!

Chapter 1: Euro Nymphing: Some call it Euro nymphing, others call it Czech nymphing, Polish nymphing, French nymphing, or tightline nymphing. George Daniel calls it contact nymphing. This is a deadly technique for getting nymphs to the bottom quickly and keeping them riding close to the bottom for a longer drift. Although the concept originated with competition anglers, we’ve modified it to suit anglers who just want an effective and fascinating way to catch trout.
