For the past eight months, Devin Olsen , Lance Egan, and I have been working together to create the most innovative and captivating how-to instructional video on nymph fishing. The full video will be ready to launch here very soon. It’s been an extremely busy 8 months, but we’re getting soooo close and ready to launch our first trailer.

A little insight on the project, we’ve filmed Spring, Summer, and Fall. Visited three states and seven unique stretches of water. Devin and Lance have demonstrated their skills over and over so that we could capture the best footage possible to help others learn to catch more fish.

Filming on the River

If you don’t know Lance and Devin, they are both members of Fly Fishing Team USA. Their competitive experiences have driven them to seek out and find what are truly the best techniques for catching the most trout possible. With more that 20 collective years of experience between them discovering, mastering, and innovating they have fine-tuned the most effective technique on the planet.

Devin Teaching Euro Nymphing

Lance Egan Teaching Euro Nymphing

How about me, where do I fit into the picture? Well, any filmmaker can make a how-to video about fly fishing. However, for the past 8 years I have already been learning from Devin and Lance all about Euro Nymphing. I have been guiding with this technique for more than 6 years now as well. Needless to say, I love the ability this technique grants when used properly on rivers and streams. I was a fly angler long before a filmmaker, and it is hands down the most effective method I’ve ever fished. I tried to use my experience with Euro nymphing to make sure and capture the best angles and shots needed to effectively teach this method. My goal was to also make the project as visually appealing as it is instructional.

Filming on the River

The three of us combined has made for a very rewarding experience that I think will benefit many. We brought on my filmmaking friend Dominic Bohne to aid in this endeavor during some of the shoots and his experience proved to be invaluable. We were also blessed to have the Cortland Line Company behind us helping to make this project happen. All said and done we are all very pleased with the quality of the project, and are confident it will help all those who immerse themselves in it. Digital downloads and DVD’s will be available very soon. Keep an eye out, we’re likely to give a kickoff discount for all of our friends and social media followers.

Divide and Conquer

Just over a week ago, I had the chance to get out and fish on the middle provo river.  Lucky for me, this river is in my hometown(Heber City, Not Logan 🙂 )and I have had the chance to fish it regularly this winter.  There is one stretch of river that I have fished a couple times this winter, without having as much success as I thought I should have been having.  If you are anything like me when it comes to fishing, it started to really tick me off!  So I decided to go hit the stretch of river that has been haunting me, and try to figure out what I was doing wrong.  My favorite technique to chase trout is euro nymphing, which is what method I was using.  I had even gone as far as reviewing George Daniels dynamic nymphing book to review some technique.

Once I hit the water, I went to work.  I started out by paying attention to my surrounding.  I checked water temperatures and took a long look at the first little stretch of water that I was going to fish.  This is also a stretch of river that is easily accessible and highly pressured by anglers.  As I took things a little slower, focusing on my technique, I was able to start landing fish before I had even left the parking lot area, in a river that is highly pressured.  I was taking fish out of the river in areas that I had been walking right past it to get upstream.  I ended up having a stellar day which included a pretty good sized rainbow (I love the bows!) of which I don’t catch many of in the provo.  I learned on this particular outing that I need to slow it down and focus on what I’m doing, and focus of the river conditions.  It didn’t even matter what fly I was using, I focused on what I was trying to do, that is, catching fish.  I took a small section of a stream and dissected it, catching fish and then I moved onto the next small section of stream.  So the next time you are out, take your time and fish, without worrying about where the fish were the last time you were on the water, because chances are, they are not!  TIGHT LINES!
