Reading water and understanding how to present and fish your fly in a specific section of water trumps fly selection in many ways. We're excited to launch a new SERIES on our YouTube Channel titled: "READING WATER." In each episode of READING WATER, we will tag along with a skilled and experienced angler who will give us insight into how they approach a specific section of water from all angles - GEAR, RIGGING, FLY CHOICE, SEASONALITY, FLOWS, and the like.
For this episode of READING WATER, we joined Umpqua's own Russell Miller as picks apart a classic western freestone riffle-run sequence with a variety of Euro Nymphing Tactics. Russ talks through his gear selection, available forage, fly selection, rigging, approach, and a variety of presentations with the long rod. From multi-fly nymph rigs to dry-dropper fishing to jigging streamers, Russ puts the pieces of the puzzle together on the water within the framework of the Euro Nymphing technique. Enjoy in HD.
In addition to this READING WATER episode, we'll be releasing (in the coming days) companion videos on rigging and fly selection from our day on the water with Russ. We're calling the three video series "Euro Nymphing - CRASH COURSE."
