Nymphing with a Swinger

Ok, You can only take a kid swinging for Steelhead so much before he needs to catch a fish. That’s why when we go out together he chucks hardware and swings flies with his switch rod.

Euro nymphing is all the rage now, a people are catching fish. So Im playing with it in hopes of catching more fish to expand my skill as an angler and get my kid, and me into more fish, and expand my youtube channel.

I love swinging for flies because its so simple. The system is simple. A fly thats easy to thread, Big, short, straight mono leader, or a longer one for a floating line, a sink tip, shooting head, and running line. Cast, mend (or not) swing, step, repeat. Stop when its dark.

But nymphing is a little more technical and involves delicate leaders and little flies sometimes so I’m forcing myself to learn and I’m starting to like it.

I’m under time restraints at the moment but I will throw up my latest video of me nymphing and swinging with the same rod and later I will make a better more in depth post about what I am learning on this little side journey and why I’m enjoying it more than I thought I would.
