    Agree with this, when in Bosnia + Croatia was told by both guides when coming to final drift lift the line slowly as this is when the fish are more likely to take the fly as think it is coming to the surface and they could miss the food

    Great write up.

    I often fish a single nymph upstream and have found it to be outstanding.

    And I know this might be outrageous to some I'm starting to prefer nymphing to dryfly during my trips to a chalkstream.

    I'm sure that there will be a few purists spitting there cups of tea out at what I have just said, but I like the stalk of a fish when nymphing. Having to work out the angle on him to get that perfect drift . Having to select the correct size and pattern. When the waters clear and there are multiple fish trying to target the largest. It really dose make for outstanding fishing.

    As you can see in my video here. On its day the nymph can be as much fun if not better than the dry.

    Time on the water isn't spent. It's invested . Everyday is a school day.
