In G.E.M. Skues' day, "a chief criticism of the nymph was that it was too effective and therefore unsporting. From what I can tell, it was generally accepted back then that fly fishing was one of the least effective methods for catching trout, and therein lay its virtue. We now think quite the opposite ...Today, fly fishers have to contend with hard-fished, previously caught and released, angler-conscious trout, and few of those fly fishers would avoid a fly or technique because it was too effective". Chapters include: Components of the nymph and the nymph defined; Essential techniques; Mayfly nymphs; Caddisfly nymphs; Stonefly nymphs; Emergers; Tiny nymphs; Lake nymphs; Miscellaneous nymphs; Basic techniques; Tying materials; Tying tools; Hooks; Learning from a professional tier; Additional nymphs.
