Tom Rosenbauer meets up with George Daniel who is a renowned fly angler and strong proponent of Euro Nymphing, a deadly technique for Trout and Grayling. Alternatively known as Czech Nymphing, Tight Line Nymphing or Contact Nymphing, the technique involves using a longer than usual rod, weighted fly and a long leader which includes a coloured sight indicator part of the leader called a sighter. Its particularly useful when wading up fast flowing pocket water and using short casts to locate fish. George discusses the principles of Euro nymphing before demonstrating exactly how to do it, catching numerous fish. In higher water conditions, George shows that its a great technique as he accurately picks out the softer flowing water to target. As George explains, the longer leader and sighter means that no fly line needs to sit on the water which largely eliminates drag, and he goes on to demonstrate how to tie your own Euro Nymph leader. George then talks a little about flies and the point here is that you don't need many patterns as they key factor is to get the flies to the right depth and in front of the fish. This a great episode for those wishing to get started with Euro Nymphing.
