Steve will be giving an in-depth presentation on the Czech Nymphing method with rigging instructions, fly placement and ideal waters to fish. The presentation will be at the normal meeting place, South Metro Denver Realtors Association, at 7:00pm, doors open at 6:30pm.

Czech Nymphing, also referred to as European Nymphing, is a style of nymph fishing that is readily catching on here in the United States, especially in Colorado. It is a very effective technique that is perfectly suited for the many fast waters of our state. This style of short line nymph fishing often uses longer rods, no yarn or foam strike indicators and a level construction designed to get your heavily weighted flies, often three, down to the bottom quickly. All of the weight used in a Czech Nymph rig is added to the flies themselves not the leader.

Steve has spent the last 12 years researching and experimenting with the Czech, French and Spanish Nymphing methods also referred to as the European Methods.  Steve is a veteran of the industry with over 17 years of experience guiding clients all over the globe.  Steve moved to Colorado in 2006 and has since focused his efforts on learning every facet of the European Nymphing Methods and sharing these through instructional classes and DVD’s.  Steve is also co-owner of the Blue Quill Angler Fly Shop in Evergreen, Colorado.
