European Nymphing
What is European Nymphing?  While still relatively new to most Americans, it is an incredibly effective method of fishing that Europeans have been using for decades now.  In fact, the techniques they have developed are one of the main reasons they have been so successful in international competitions.
 European Nymphing, in all of its forms, empasizes line control and quick sinking flies that provide a more direct connection to the fish and allow the angler to detect the subtlest of strikes.  Long rods, long leaders, and short casts equal large numbers of fish...even when fishing water that would be considered "unfishable" using more traditional methods.
Below you will find a basic overview of the most common styles: Czech Nymphing, Polish Nymphing, French Nymphing, and Spanish Nymphing.  You will also find some of the flies used for these styles of fishing, as well as good European Nymphing fly rods, and some helpful resources.
