European nymphing is gaining in popularity here in the Estados Unidos, as it should. The techniques that have been used in France, Spain, Poland, and the Czech Republic deserve attention. They add a new perspective to nymph fishing and open up new opportunities on our home waters.
The Czech jig flies employed in various tight line nymphing techniques give the angler the option to fish right on the bottom without fear of repeated snag-ups. The weight from these jigs keeps the the multiple fly rig taunt and allows for better telegraphing of strikes.
The jig in this video is a pheasant tail style nymph. Many of our standard nymph patterns can be adapted to tying on these new jig hooks.
