Modern Nymphing Elevated: Beyond The Basics
I purchased the 1st DVD, Modern Nymphing: European Inspired Techniques, and was concerned I would be getting too much duplication. However, the first video was foundational covering most aspects of European nymphing on a get-in-the-water and get started fishing. This DVD provided more detail for correcting mistakes that will occur from casting, drifts, and setting the hook from strikes. Many of the mistakes made stem from the rigging differences between European nymphing rods and rigs verses conventional drifting with a weight forward line and indicator. This DVD expounds on why the European cast and drift are different and what to do about it. It also covered other details such as approaching the fish and body position in the stream. Devin will cover a topic, then Lance will cover the same topic—both adding similarities but differences, as each may have slightly different fishing methods. I am glad they continued this DVD with Keys to Success, text popups to reinforce what they are speaking and demonstrating. The photography is amazing and with each topic covered, demonstrations are fished on different types of water such as pockets, riffles, and pools.
