In their films Modern Nymphing and Modern Nymphing Elevated, Devin Olsen and Lance Egan shared the European inspired nymphing methods which have brought them success in competitions in the USA and abroad. Combined with Gilbert Rowley’s vision behind the camera, these films have introduced thousands of anglers to techniques which have helped them increase their success and enjoyment on the water.
Modern Nymphing techniques are incredibly effective for catching trout in diverse areas of a river. Yet, many anglers tend to focus only on obvious pools and simple runs, ignoring the additional opportunities available to them if they were to adapt their fishing to target more of the water types that they encounter.
In this new film, Devin and Lance identify sundry river structures and classify them into recognizable water types, including pools, riffles, runs, pocket water, glides, bank-side lies, eddies, etc. Each water type has unique characteristics that demand the use of different fishing methods. Devin and Lance provide strategies for selecting rigging, flies and possible techniques for each water type. By applying the new information provided in this video one will be capable of adapting fishing strategy to find success in the many water types encountered rather than fishing only the most obvious water types with the most common methods.
