Nymph Fishing Tips & Tricks Part 2. Duo-Technique (Hopper-Dropper). Rods, Reels, Leader Setup.

When using a dry fly as an indicator we speak about the 'Hopper-Dropper-' or 'Duo-Technique'. This special way of nymphing is very popular in the US and New Zealand and works great on different kinds of waters: fast running pocket waters, steady flowing streams and in general, when trout and grayling don't just feed close to the bottom. In this video Steffen Schulz explains how to combine a dry fly with a nymph and shows which tackle is suitable for the hopper-dropper-fishery and how to rig it.

  • Which rods are suitable?
  • Which reels to use?
  • What about fly lines?
  • Which leaders work best?
  • How to rig it?
  • Which flies to use?
