About the Woven Polish Nymph Trout Fly

Adam Sikora devised the Woven Polish Nymph specifically for fishing using the "Short Nymphing" method. Plenty of weight and no hackles so as to get the nymph to sink as quickly as possible

Expert Tip:

"Short Nymphing" , you stand sideways to the current and cast your nymph upstream, point the rod tip down so as to keep the line led on the water for a couple of seconds, then lift it a few inches or so depending on the depth of water. The line must not touch the water surface. Keep in touch with the nymph at all times, you follow it downstream using the currant's natural drift.
