The Fly Fishing Bible of Nymphing

Post by ForumGhillie » Wed Jan 20, 2021 11:26 am

I happily received yesterday my signed copy of The Fly Fishing Bible of Nymphing by Dr Paul Gaskell. I couldn't put it down last night and read all of Part I. Very interesting and Paul does a great job of describing all the various European nymphing techniques, along with historical background for each method.

Lots more to read and digest.

I guess that means you'll now be leaving the Flymph Forum for the Perdigon Forum?

Actually with the pandemic, snow and cold I am hunkered down in my Winter absorbing sponge mode. I have read 2 books in the past week burning the late night candle. Now on my third book with another book coming thanks to Variant.

John - Have you watched the supplemental videos yet? They are all very well done. I’m looking forward to putting the leader construction/treatment techniques into action.

Ray, yes I have.

I have also been emailing back and forth with Paul with some questions.

I asked him if he would do a Zoom meeting with us to discuss his book and the European techniques? He said "Yes!!!!"

0.370mm - 0.0145 inches
0.310mm - 0.012 inches
0.260mm - 0.010 inches
