European nymphing techniques are worlds apart from the traditional strike indicator methods. This video will change how you approach nymphing, provided you are motivated to try it and perhaps steepen your learning curve. It is effective if you choose to do the work involved to learn it.
Not only is this video instructional, it features very pleasing cinematography combined with plenty of action, as the featured fly fishers catch fish after fish. Lance and Devin do a great job of explaining things, and Gilbert Rowley does a fantastic job of capturing all the action and putting it together in a format that's easy to follow and even easier to watch.
From a more descriptive standpoint, the video follows a logical outline first giving you the introduction to the general methods they'll discuss and why they're so effective. That's followed by discussion on gear recommendations and why you'll need said gear. They very clearly discuss the rigs you'll use, how to build them and how to use them. This includes clear diagrams on the setups they're actually using in the film as well as how to rig your flies, tie knots etc. From there, you'll learn (or better said, be shown) about putting the rigs into action with casting, drift control and hook setting techniques. As a final piece to all of it, they then spend time reviewing effective fly patterns for this style of fishing.
So, come prepared to sit back and enjoy this video feast of information that will be invaluable to you when you nymph fish. You might even want to take notes!
