How to Cast with Nymphs

Montana fly fishing can be relaxing, fulfilling, and most importantly fun. However, heading out on a fly fishing vacation with no knowledge of how to cast a fly fishing fly can quickly lead to frustration. Whether you are new to Smith River fly fishing or you simply need a reminder, watch this video for a few tips on how to cast with nymphs.

Depending on the types of fish you are trying to catch, you may need various pieces of fly fishing equipment. If you are looking to catch trout, you may want to use nymphs. Cast your fly towards the head of the pool so that it can drift with the current; when it comes up through the water it can resemble a real aquatic insect, tricking trout into taking the bite. Fly fishing with nymphs is relatively similar to fishing with streamers, except nymphs are not naturally weighted.
