LOREN hound is 100% correct fishing nymphs is a matter of what works for you. If you aren't sure of something give it a try and see if it works. Many people fish them downstream my favorite technique is to fish them upstream on a dead drift stripping in line as the nymph comes to me when it gets within a rods length either upstream or downstream I wi"ll use the rod to slowly lift it out of the water (like an emerger coming to the surface) I belive this is called the leisering (sp.) lift. I read about it several years ago and its been very good to me. Point is experiment, trial and error is what this sport is all about, and how many of us want to admit we aren't as smart as a fish?
