'Euro Nymphing' has become a very popular term amongs fly fishers all across the globe during the last couple of years. At the same time as these different tight line nymphing techniques (e.g. Czech Nymphing, French Nymphing, Spanish Nymphing etc.) evolved, new flies and new interpretations of classic nymph patterns arose too. Due to new tying materials like jig hooks and tungsten beads it is finally possible to present small flies in fast current to Trout and Grayling feeding close to the bottom. A big advantage on many rivers! The company Guideline has recognized this and offers a range of high-quality flies.
The Pheasant Killer is a highly effective pattern for rivers with small, dark mayflies. Due to its red tag made from Glo Brite it's a great choice for slightly colored waters and grayling fishing.
Barbless Jig Hook.
Tipp: These nymphs are fished the most effective with long (10 ft. or 11 ft.) and sensitive fly rods (#2 or #3) and thin leaders.
