Heavy Mayfly Nymph

We love to see trout feeding in the surface - and a few trout fishers will go as far as to fish dry flies only. But the fact is, that trout feed almost all their food below the surface and mostly on the bottom on nymphs and other species in the rivers and lakes. Then it makes reasonable sense to bring along a good amount of nymphs to imitate the main food-source for the trout. In this video we have teamed up with the skilled flytyer and flyfisher Hanna Bossow Vestergaard, and she demonstrates one of her favorite nymphs for fishing deep, when the big mayflies are about to hatch. This is a relatively big nymph, but it can be variated in both size and colors to match the different species.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
