I like those kind of nymphs. Easy to tie, very durable and it sinks extremely fast, because of the weight and the slim profile. Top fishing fly.

I didn’t got a lot of time today, but I was able to drive at noon for an hour to the river to look for the chubs. On the 5th or 6th cast, I hooked a really nice fish. It fought very hard, like it was on steroids… I was sure, that the chub ruined the pool, but after some minutes I caught some more fish. A really nice short trip. The nymph I’ve used was tied 20 minutes befor I went to the river. ;-)
A perfect big chub in top condition! Flawless! It doesn’t have to be trout or grayling all the time. Sometimes, the big chubs are harder to catch than trouts!
This is my first try on Martin Rudin’s very nice “Leftover Nymph”. It looks very realistic und is not as complicated to tie, as you may think.
Martin did a nice step by step tutorial on his website. It’s in swedish, but you can see clearly how he ties his fly.
Here is the direct link:
There you will find also other nice patterns! It’s worth to check them out!
To be honest, I’m not a fan of czech nymphing. I just love to cast with a flyrod. Czech nymphing is super effectiv, no doubt about that. It’s just too less casting for my liking… ;-)
The Czech Nymphs on the other hand are pretty cool flies. I didn’t fish them much in the past, but I want to try them in the next season, especially the ones with a little hot spot. This is quite hard for me, because I got a lot more faith in natural colors. Maybe I was wrong all the time, we’ll see….
Czech Nymphs should be weighted AND as slim as possible to sink fast. That’s not the easiest task. You have to find the right amount of dubbing. Less is more!
I look forward testing them in a nice stream for trout and grayling. :-)
