Nymph fishing with threads is a type of fishing that could be considered within the modality of fly fishing . Although this is not too important, since it is very particular to classify it in one type or another. In recent years it has had a very high boom, seeing a significant number of adept people due, above all, to the fact that it is taking the world of competition. It is here where conditions have been greatly improved and innovations have emerged that stand out quite a bit.

The person who has elevated this modality to fame in Spain has been Pablo Castro Pinos . He is the one who continuously experiments with the materials and constantly improves them for the most fond of nymph fishing.

This modality allows us to carry out fishing days in deep river areas where the current is quite strong . In fact, it is done in those times when, if we wanted to fish dry fly, we could not due to the harsh weather.

This consists of fishing using only a line , which is generally brightly colored. The most used tones are fluorine, such as yellow, green, orange or even white. This type of coloring helps us to always know where the nymphs move and, in addition, to focus much more on the bites, guiding us not only the movements that occur in the thread and that can tire our eyes so much.

In any case, these colors can be seen better or worse depending on the type of water where we find ourselves and, therefore, each fisherman must be the one who selects the one that interests him according to the situation that he is going to find. In any case, it does not hurt to always wear different ones, in case the day goes wrong. The line is tied to the tippet by means of a strut and an end where the two nymphs that give the type of fishing their name are located.

Tips for successful nymph fishing

Next, we are going to give a series of tips that should be taken into account in the event that you are starting to practice or have been interested if you did not know this capture method. Be careful because, according to the rules, it is possible that some of these tips are incompatible with competition.

The nymphs should be allowed to deepen

People who start are fooled because, after launching the nymphs, they tighten the thread and this generates the wrong feeling of being stung. You have to be patient and, therefore, when the cast is made and the nymphs touch the surface, enough thread must be released so that they can go deeper. Although the nymphs can also be thrown over the current, as long as the thread is loose. Thus, the current will be the one in charge of taking the nymphs to the most convenient depth.

Hold line in fishing action

This is presented as a hobby of every fisherman, although it is true that for beginners it is best to manipulate or hold the line with both hands. The index finger of the right hand must hold the rod (otherwise if you are left-handed) and exert some tension on the line in order to control the bites. The left hand is the one that accompanies the nymphs as they drift down the current and exerts a small pull at the moment of nailing.
