The Fish & The Fly 2 Nymphs

flag_ukThis is a film in the series The Fish & The Fly. In these movies we cover in detail many different challenges the flyfisher faces. We have travelled to amazing rivers and lakes to find the best conditions to demonstrate nymph fishing.

We have joined Morten Oeland as he demonstrates how to handle many different situations. We take a detailed look at the naturals and Morten shows us practical fishing with his best imitations.
As in the previous movie we have placed underwater cameras in the areas as we fish and thereby gained a unique insight into the behavior of the fish.

Morten Oeland is a highly recognised flytier, and in the flytying movie he demonstrates creative and innovative techniques on a high level.

We follow in close detail how he ties 10 effective nymphs that we have seen work. There is a lot of inspiration for your own flytying.

The movie is a journey into the magic world of flyfishing – with great fish and intense sceneries. A combination of excitement, experiences, the joy of flyfishing and facts about fish and flies.

Nymph rigs from the film The Fish & The Fly 2

In the film The Fish & The Fly 2, Morten Oland fishes under many different circumstances and conditions, that often require special rigs to be fished effectively.

Rig for grayling in River Traun

Morten fishes with this specific rig while grayling fishing on the River Traun in Southern Germany. It is fished upstream – or across and up – and the rig enables you to fish the little nymph close to the bottom. Morten uses indicator paste. Popularly speaking, this is a floating paste that is moulded and squeezed onto the line. It serves as a kind of float and a strike-indicator.

TraunStallingTackel100101

TraunStallingTackel100101_01The stonefly nymph is heavily weighted and it is meant to pull the little and much lighter nymph down, so that it fishes close to the bottom.

Trout fishing on the River Traun

This is a very simple rig. With indicator paste, the nymph can be fished in a controlled manner, and even the most careful strike will be registered. The distance between the indicator and the nymph is adjusted according to water depth and current.

TraunRegnbueTackel100101

RegnbueTraunOn a lot of different occasions we have had underwater cameras on the fishing spots. In the River Traun, we see a rainbow trout feeding. Tiny twigs, which drift by, are taken in the belief that they are small Caddis Case Larvae – or house-building caddis larvae. It has a quick taste and then spits them immediately back out again.

TraunRegnbueTackel100101_02At the end of the leader, Morten fishes a very effective imitation of a house-building caddis larvae. He fishes upstream over a slow-paced river stretch. By using the indicator paste, he can fish the fly so that it drifts just above the bottom.

Trout fishing in Lappland

This is a very simple nymph rig too. Morten fished trout in a fantastic little river in Lappland. The fish are close to the opposite side, where the depth is a mere 0.5m. The first fish, that Morten catches, takes the nymph while it drifts freely without an indicator. However, on this shallow and fast-flowing stretch of water, it is difficult to fish the nymph, so that it looks like a free-drifting caddis larvae. The nymph gets stuck a lot on rocks, and it doesn’t look very life-like. With a bit of indicator paste on the line and short distance between the indicator and the nymph, the fly can be fished with much greater control.

Trout fishing in shallow waters – New Zealand

In the film, Morten Oland casts to a fish that cruises around in really shallow and clear water.

Tackle02NZ_090703_01

Tackle02NZ_090703_02In shallow and clear water, there is a risk, that the indicator paste will spook the fish. Therefore, Morten uses a big imitation of a beetle as an indicator.

Trout fishing in deep pools – New Zealand

Some fish are deep down in big pools of water and they can be difficult to get to. In the film, Morten fishes to a big trout that holds near the bottom of a very clear and deep pool with difficult currents.

Tackle01_NZ_50cmDropper01

Tackle01_NZ_50cmDropper03A big # 10 Stonefly Nymph works great as an indicator in this particular fishing situation. It looks very natural and its floating capacity is great enough to carry heavily weighted nymphs.

Tackle01_NZ_50cmDropper02To get a relatively small fly down in the big pool, Morten fishes with two heavy nymphs on the leader. Especially the Heptagenia Nymph is heavily weighted.
