Fishing beneath the surface with nymphs can be one of the most consistent ways to catch fish. In this course, you will learn a variety of techniques for choosing, rigging and presenting flies to fish where they feed most—subsurface. Euro-nymphing, strike indicators, and high-sticking are just some of the skills you will learn in this focused class. In addition to learning how to fish nymphs, we will also learn why, by better understanding the life cycles, habitats, and timing for the myriad of stillwater aquatic insects. Join us as we improve your skill set and see Yellowstone from this unique perspective.
