  1. Was wondering if anyone would be interested in a post on London's fisheries while I am stuck in this part of the world? Just in case anyone is around this side of the world. Can let you know about price, conditions and all the rest. Trying to get to all of them.

    The best will be if you play around with different lenghts, as what works for me, might not work for your casting style.

    I will look for my self built leader formulas and send that to you as well.

    This is a basic setup, play around and see what works for you, there is not hard and fast rules, as your casting style, fishing style and weight of flies varies. you will get the right formula, the more you play around with the basic setup.

    In shallower water, that flows fast, you might want to reduce the front section to 60cm.

    Also the more you get use to the various setups, you will be able to use one setup in various conditions.

    Let me know if you come right, if not, will forward more info.
  3. Hi Douglas

    First of all, do you want to do Czech Nymphing or French nymphing?
    What type of water will you be fishing?
    Fast broken water, or fast glides? or deep fast water, or fairly flat water?

    I am asking these questions, as there are a couple of variations when you are doing a specific only type of water.

    If it is sort of general nymphing, here is a general nymph rig.

    Instead of building your own, get a tapered leader, 9" 3x.
    Cut the butt section about 35cm shorter, this section is normally to thick.
    Tie your coiled indicator on in front of the leader, add 50cm of 0,14mm stroft if you can get, otherwise Rio will do. that is about 5,5x then add another 60cm of 6x. this section becomes your point and dropper fly setup.
