Episode 26 - Advice for Fall Nymph Fishing

One of the keys to being successful in the fall is understanding "light line" nymphing.  The water is usually low, clear, and the turbidity of spring doesn't allow for the big heavy setups and spontaneous strikes from trout.  Slow things down and lighten up in the fall. Its a delicate game and this podcast is dedicated to helping you get set up right and understand how to put more trout on the line.

It seems as though dry fly fishing is becoming a lost art. No longer do anglers spend days, weeks, or even years mastering the art of a stealthy presentation with a dry fly.  Nowadays we just club 'em with a big strike indicator and a couple of nymphs.  Dry fly fishing however is the heart and soul of the sport!

At a the hotel bar in Mexico we chat about the happenings of the week.  Excuse my language, I was excited and a had a couple of drinks.  Our crew had a killer trip to fish the Sea of Cortez this past week.  My best pal Connor and I debrief over a few drinks and discuss the trip. It was really fun and we had a good time chatting about all the action from the week.
