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.

Great Video!

I've been wanting to get into euro-nymphing and hoping for a resource that would give me the knowledge to try it. This video was absolutely that resource! It includes real life situations that are explained front to back in a way that makes it easily understandable for the viewer. Too often resources like this leave you with, "wait, what did he just do?" moments. I am very happy to say that there were none of those in this video. I highly recommend you buy this video if you plan to get into euro-nymphing. It is very well done. I'm currently reading the book Tactical Fly Fishing. So far, it has been equally good and covers aspects of fly fishing outside of just euro-nymphing. I will post a review when I am done reading it. Thanks guys for what you are doing!

I am 65 years old and have been Flyfishing since a young boy. When I first began many of the techniques/tactics and flies were a close held secret. I am so happy and pleased to see 2 young experts share their knowledge and experience in such a wonderful way. The videos are excellent! You may not be able to teach and old dog new tricks but you certainly taught and old fly fisherman many. Thanks for sharing.
