Woven Nymphs

A fly fishing technique known as European nymphing, or Euro nymphing, is quickly catching on in American angling circles. There are many variations, but the basic concept of Euro nymphing is the use of weighted flies instead of adding lead split to your tippet. Tying flies with tungsten bead heads or lead underbodies will help get your flies into the strike zone quicker, as well as allow the angler better contact with his or her rig during the drift. Below is an example of a simple pattern, woven with green embroidery floss, that is easy on the wallet and extremely effective on trout.
