Mastering the Dead Drift: Indicator Nymphing Simplified and Perfected
Indicator style nymphing enables anglers to present small flies to heavily pressured fish with precision. Rigging, casting, mending, fly and weight selection, as well as several scenarios, are covered. The casting and ending segments were filmed in slow motion with voice-overs to enable viewers to easily learn the techniques.
The majority of fly fishermen begin nymph fishing using traditional tight-line methods with split shot and no indicator and most early attempts at nymphing are done with rigs of similar modified design. These styles of nymphing are effective on smaller streams. However, many anglers find out when venturing onto larger rivers and tailwaters with little gradient, where presenting flies at a distance is necessary to catch trout, that no single nymphing technique fits every situation.
The rigging itself is at the heart of "The Dead Drift" technique, and variations on the rig depend on water type, depth, and speed. The flies are of secondary importance. This DVD will show you the leader needed to indicator nymph. Weight and fly selection will also be covered. This DVD also includes the various casting techniques. Last, mending is extremely important in getting a near perfect "Dead Drift" and is thoroughly covered in this film's technique tutorial. Once you learn the casting and mending techniques you will be exposed to several on stream scenarios in which you will see how all of these components come together. This film is the culmination of over 25 years of on stream research and experience by Aaron Jasper, one of this decade's most published and heralded Fly Fishing educators. All of the scenarios were filmed on public water in New York, Pennsylvania, Montana, and Oregon.
