Euro Nymph Fishing on Our Lunch Break - 30 Minutes of Mayhem
April 4, 2018
My Euro Nymphing Setup:
Sage ESN 4100-4 - 10' 4 Weight (I plan to get the 11' 3 Weight Redington Hydrogen SINGLE HAND ROD - don't get the switch rod)
RIO Gold WF3F Fly Line ( I like a thin line, since I don't cast with it anyway on these short drifts a #3 is good, #2 would be even better to protect light tippet when the fish runs)
18-24" of 20# Chartreuse/Orange Dacron Backing for my "Sighter"
Leader is 12' of 20# Maxima Ultragreen above the Sighter
My 3 Favorite Flies for Euro Nymphing:
I personally have had my best success using Jighead Tungsten Beadhead flies. I haven't done as well using Stone Nymphs (you will here this in the video), so these are the 3 flies that I have been relying on primarily. Get more than you think you need because you will loose a few getting started until you learn to control the depth of your drift. I like using a #12 as my "anchor fly" on 3X and a #16 as my trailer fly on 4X or 5X.
