GENERAL MEETING & PRESENTATION w/ Dave Smith - "Nymphing Like a European" (via ZOOM)

Nymphing Like A European
Dave Smith

Via Zoom - July 13, 2021
with Wilderness Fly FIshers

In the past few seasons, the technique known as Euro nymphing or tight line nymphing has gone from being a buzz word in competitive angling to an everyday technique used by anglers throughout the world. Although simple in concept, and not so very different from what we all know as “high sticking”, the technique still leaves many fly fishers scratching their head and wondering what all the fuss is about. Competition rules prohibit the use of split shot and suspension devices (floating strike indicators), giving rise to a new style of nymph fishing that uses longer rods and heavier flies. Every day anglers benefit from the technology passed down from the disciplines of international team competition, from rod design to accessories like packs and clothing. A technique such as Euro nymphing is the most far-reaching example in recent years. George Daniel’s best-selling book Dynamic Nymphing along with the videos of Devin Olsen (both speakers on our Southern California circuit) are excellent reference material for all nymphing styles. Our July presenter, San Diego angler Dave Smith will focus on this and other tournament techniques that can easily be applied to our local Sierra fishing. This is Dave’s first appearance on our six-club speaker circuit – please extend him a very warm welcome.
