    Hi Jonathon, sorry the pc has hiccupped a few times but simply wanted to compliment you on yet another classic video particulary in respect of the upstream nymph. You are an inspiration to us all. regards

    Hi Jonathan, great video as usual. How do you connect the nymph? Is to the hook bend or do you use a dropper. I alway find the duo a pain to cast any distance.

    Great video, I especially enjoyed the section on pocket water. Do you use weighted nymphs or some other method to get down to the bottom of the pool, or do you rely on the trout rising from cover to grab the fly in the faster water?

    Hi Walney1956- I tie the dry fly on a small dropper about 2-3 inches long. I prefer this to off the hook point which reduces hook ups on the dry in my opinion.

    HI Ermintrude (I still remember the magic roundabout!)- The nyphs are soft hackled flies with heavy tungsten beads (3mm). In this type of water its important to get the flies down fast. Fish often hold in depressions just behind rocks and will not venture up very often except for example in a heavy caddis hatch.
