Modern nymphing: European Inspired Techniques DVD (featuring Devin Olsen and Lance Egan)


In this DVD, Lance Egan and I share the European inspired nymphing techniques that have helped us to be successful in the world championships as well as in competitions at home. Our friend Gilbert Rowley at Capture Adventure Media has produced a video that is not only instructional but exciting and entertaining to watch. 

Specific topics covered include:

  • The pros and cons of European vs. suspension/strike indicator nymphing
  • European nymphing gear and rigging
  • Casts for European nymphing
  • The execution - fishing and detecting strikes upstream, up and across, and down and across
  • Fourteen confidence flies from Devin and Lance

The film was shot on six public rivers in Utah, Idaho, and Oregon.

Good, informative, and inspiring video

I saw this video once, and I felt confident enough afterwords to purchase the right equipment for the job. Now I’m looking forward to trying what I learned. Instructional videos can’t get much better than that!

Modern Nymphing

This was something I had anticipated seeing and it did not disappoint. Shot in some amazing public waters and with two very amazing fly fishermen, it shares the nuts and bolts of Euro style nymphing that they call Modern Nymphing. Broken down into logical segments, the video will keep you coming back time after time to catch one nuance or another. They also include an insert with their confidence flies. Great images...amazing photography and production values (outdoor sound is amazing difficult to get cleaning in the field but the sound here is clean and audible for old ears like mine. Gilbert Rowley, Lance Egan and Devin Olsen have created a series that will be "catching fly fishermen" for years to come. Recommend buying this and the sequel, Modern Nymphing Elevated.
