Euro Nymphing Sighter
Are you ready to get started??? Euro Nymphing is hands down the most productive method we utilize for catching fish. We want to make it very easy for everyone to improve their catch rate with this great technique. For a short time we are offering what we call a “Fast Pack” to help you get started.
Tacky Day Pack – $22.00 Value
One of the coolest features about this box is the amount of flies it holds relative to it’s size. It’s the perfect box to use as a “Working Fly Box” or in other words load it up with a handful of the patterns that you fish 80% of the time. The silicone slits will not wear out like foam tends to, and the durability of this box is second to none.
Here are a few of the specs behind the box:
- Dimensions: 5″ x 3″ x 3/4″
- Holds up to 180 flies
- New bi-directional slit design
- Latch-less mangnetic closure system
One Dozen Tungsten Nymphs – $30.00 Value

One key to tight line nymphing is a colored piece of straight mono tied into your leader. This will help detect strikes, and truly is essential. There are two sighters in each pack, and we will make sure to include a leader diagram to help you get started.
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!
