how do you perform the czech upstream nymphing technique?does anyone use the czech upstream nymphing techique, ive tried it this year and found its very effective, i have caught searun speckles and browns. Its amazing how close to the fish you can actually get.
thanks, i'll give it a try.Ideally you want to use a rod that is about 10' in length but I have been doing this effectively with my 9' rods. In laymans terms (okay the way that I perform it) you basically keep your arm outstretched and keep the fly (nymph) right under the rod tip. Follow the fly with the tip. The fly line itself doesn't really hit the water as you're just basically using the leader. When you come to the end of the drift that you're fishing you basically pick it up and replace the fly where you started. That's it.
I'm sure there are people out here more qualified that can describe it better than I... but that's how I do it. I've used it very effectively in small streams.
