In the world of fly fishing, a nymph is an artificial insect that various freshwater fish (especially trout) find attractive.
Why are brightly colored nymph flies so tempting to trout? And how can fly fishing using a nymph improve your chances of a successful fly fishing trip in certain water conditions?
Explore the nuances of using brightly colored nymphs for fly fishing below, and check out the variety of nymphs from Wild Water Fly Fishing.
WHAT IS A NYMPH?
The nymphal stage is considered the infancy of an aquatic insect. The nymphs are frequently seen in streams, lakes, rivers, and ponds and are often a favorite food for fish. Trout love to eat insect nymphs, which is good news for us fly fishermen looking to catch fish.
Nymphs are one of several types of flies, including egg flies, dry flies, streamers, poppers, foam flies, saltwater flies, deer hair flies, and terrestrial flies.
Since nymphs mimic insects found primarily in stream beds, and trout eat nearly 90% of their diet below the surface, they are excellent flies to consider bringing and making your next trip to the water worthwhile. worth it, no matter your skill level!
WHY A BRIGHTLY COLORED NYMPH?
You are on a fly fishing trip and due to heavy rain the water is murky, deep and fast moving. Under these high water conditions, fish tend to take refuge in deep, slow-moving water, so you’ll want to fish the bottom of river pools using a brightly colored nymph to get their attention.
Simply put, the brightly colored nymphs present themselves well for high water fishing. Despite their conspicuous coloring, fishing for these tiny insect imitations can make it difficult for anglers to spot strikes. Strike indicators can help you trace your line below the water’s surface and signal a smooth catch of trout.
TEMPTING TROUT IN A LITTLE TIME
Are you on a quest to secure some trout to sear with a little butter and lemon? We say the brighter your fly, the better. Trout have excellent vision and can recognize a potential meal even in cloudy water conditions.
And think about it: aren’t we attracted to shiny and shiny things? Nymphs with stunning hues are incredibly attractive to trout as they are more showy. They look more delicious than the common insect in its nymph or larva stage. Many fly fishermen find that by using a colorful nymph, they are able to catch a more significant number of fish.
