Nymph’s are fished sub-surface (below the water’s surface). The key to nymphing success is getting the flies to the depth at which fish are feeding. This can be achieved using either heavier/larger nymphs, or adding splitshot. For more information on nymphing strategy, check out our Nymphing 101 section.
Standard nymph rig
Application: An easily adjustable rig, great for getting your flies into the correct water column.
Bounce nymph rig
Application: This rig will help your flies get really low in the water column. We have found it most effective when using very small nymphs or bug activity is limited.
