Quite often the fish caught Czech nymphing are in the 10-14" inch range, but in some cases surprisingly large fish take the little #10 to #18 nymphs.
|Some flies used when I teach the Czech nymph Technique|
Our streams have many of the standard insects such as stoneflies, caddis, and many mayfies due to the pristine water conditions. Using fly patterns that imitate these insects in their nymph stage is critical to the success of the Czech nymph technique.
|Adult Stonefly Size #10 are common in June|
When teaching we use various rods specifically designed for Czech nymphing such as Admira, Vision Cult, and Sage 99.
|The Sage 99 is a great choice for Czech Nymphing|

If you are interested in learning more about this style of fishing there are many books available including one by George Daniel just published this year: Dynamic Nymphing: Tactics, Techniques, and Flies from Around the World
and if you want to get some hands-on training you can book one of my guided trips here and learn the technique of Czech Nymphing on our beautiful coastal rivers!
