Little River Outfitters School of Fly Fishing - Townsend, Tennessee

David Knapp nymph fishing on a Smoky Mountain Stream.


Nymphing Tactics

This class will make you a much better fly fisherman.  The truth is, the food most trout consume, is drifting below the surface of the water.  You may read, up to 90% of the trout’s diet is food, drifting down in the water column.  And, often, trout just won’t rise to a dry fly.

Fly fishermen often struggle when using nymphs, below the surface.

The Nymphing Tactics Class, will help you solve those problems.  This class is taught by Bill Bolinger, Rob Fightmaster and David Knapp, who are all well known and admired anglers. Rob and David are professional fly fishing guides. 

In this class, you will spend half the day in the classroom, learning:

What is nymphing, types of nymphs, when to fish nymphs, short line vs. indicator nymphing and approach and presentation. 

You will learn about the tackle, such as rods, fly lines, leaders, weight and strike indicators.

The instructors will teach you how they rig for nymphing, including indicator placement, weight placement and fishing with droppers.

You will learn the different casts used to fish nymphs, including: throwing an open loop, hauling, the tuck cast and the tension cast.

After lunch, all of you will go to a stream in the Park, and put what you have learned to practical use.  This time, spent with these guys, will be invaluable, for years to come. 

Please check the schedule, then call the shop to enroll in the next class.  Our number is 865-448-9459.  These guys are experts, who are willing to share their knowledge with you, and make you a better fly fisherman.  This will be a great day you will never forget.
