Fly fishing nymphs are very small, and beginners as well as expert fly fishermen have a little bit of trouble with this particular technique. Most all of the different techniques used in fly fishing can be tough but not as tough as nymph fishing, it could even possibly be the most difficult technique. If your favorite type of fish to fish for is trout then nymph fishing is something you will definitely want to master since trout mostly feed on the insects just under the surface of the water.
A nymph is an insect that hasn’t completely developed. If you pay attention when fishing you will discover that the more mature, older insects flying around skim along the surface of the water while the nymph lives below the surface of the water.
The reason nymph fishing is so difficult is because the fisherman has to try to mimic the immature insects that still live under the waters surface and it is because of this it is hard for the fisherman to see the fish attempting to catch the fly.
When the fisherman dry fly fishing, the fly sits on top of the water and it is because of this that the fisherman can easily see when the fish attempts to take the bait and bit their line. Another reason the nymph fishing is hard to accomplish is because the nymph is under the surface of the water so it is more likely to bump into trees and rocks which imitates the feel of the fish taking the hook causing the fisherman to reel their line in too early. The technique of nymph fishing can be a very big challenge, even difficult but by gaining a better understanding of this technique, and a lot of patience it can be accomplished.
