Learn to fish with a nymph on a river
INTERMEDIATE TO EXPERIENCED ANGLER
Do you want to go further in river fly fishing? Try your hand at more advanced techniques?
Learn from a fishing guide, a specialist in line nymph fishing?
As opposed to sight fishing, line fishing is fishing “the water”, prospecting the water layers, offering the fish a weighted nymph or a second one in a potence. You need to have a good reading of the water, the right equipment and to acquire the fishing technique.
Who is river nymph fishing for?
You already practice fly fishing in the river and want to learn how to fish with a nymph on a wire, with 4-hour improvement sessions.
Positioned upstream, nymph fishing is practised with one or two nymphs, in a potence. It is aimed at anglers who have already mastered river fly fishing and who want to learn a more technical but equally exciting and effective form of fly fishing!

How to fish with a nymph?
Laurent Charenton guides you to the best spots and rivers in the region, advises you on the nymphs to adopt according to the tastes and preferences of the fish and teaches you European-style nymph fishing.
Necessary equipment for nymph fishing with wire :
- Rod between 9 and 11 feet (depending on the size of the river and the space available around it).
- Two types of reels can be used: classic reel or with a removable weighting system to balance the rod.
- Parallel silk.
- A leader that is no longer than twice the length of the rod.
Depending on the speed of the current and the depth of the river, the weight of the nymphs must be adapted. There are several variations of nymphs, of different sizes, weights and colours.
European style nymph fishing technique:
- Cast the nymph using not the weight of the line but the weight of the nymph to propel it.
- Position the rod at a 45° angle after the nymph hits the water.
- Follow the trajectory of the line as it drifts, thanks to the two-coloured line you have mounted, above your tip.
- Make sure you keep your left hand in position to retrieve the line as it drifts and keep your leader under tension..
These are just the basic rules, you will really learn by practicing in the field, during your fishing session with Laurent Charenton.
