Fly-Fishing Techniques
Fly-Fishing Techniques - Nymph(s), Lightly Weighted or Heavily Weighted

Nymph(s)Lightly Weighted

Nymphs are sinking flies that are drifted with the current. Cast well upstream of the fish you are targeting, and allow the fly to drift naturally with the current. For lightly weighted nymphs, your fly line should be buoyant enough to keep the fly from catching on the bottom.

Nymph(s) Weighted with Indicator

For heavily weighted nymphs, a strike indicator is recommended. Use the same drifting technique as described above. Strike indicators help keep your nymph(s) from hanging up on the bottom and alert you when a fish has taken your fly.
