Active Nymphing: Aggressive Strategies for Casting, Rigging, and Moving the Nymph by Rich Osthoff

New and specific presentation techniques beyond traditional dead driftingLong-line nymphing, no-line nymphing, downstream strategies, micronymphing, nymphing lakes, and designing your own imitationsInstruction on hauling with weighted rigs, hammering, jabbing, tilting the rod plane, roll casting, elliptical casts, curve casts, downstream loadingNo other form of fly fishing has broader application on so many types of water for both active and inactive trout. So argues Osthoff, who challenges the long-held notion that nymphing involves little more than dead drifting with the current. Osthoff advocates an active strategy of moving the nymph, applying effective casting and creative presentation techniques that will attract the most elusive trout. With comprehensive advice on rigging and prospecting, practice tips for a wide variety of casts, and strategies for precise control to bring your nymph to life, this is your guide to becoming a truly versatile angler.

A building full of armor, weapons from Ancient Imperial gold swords to Marshmallow guns, and shields. Lares roam it; they aren't afraid to 'help' you dress for the war games or select a weapon.
