I know we all get things for Christmas that we really need and of course we all get things that we just don’t use or don’t need. Well I got both but the gift I was pleased with most was my “Nymphing by the Numbers video with Kelly Galloup. This video not only has some excellent information on nymphing but has some added information on dry fly fishing as well. I must confess I am still in the learning process when it comes to nymphing. The different nymphing techniques on this video are easy to understand and the plus is Kelly is actually landing trout in the process.
After watching the segment on dry flies it got me to thinking about my favorite dry fly the Parachute Adams. I know this fly has been used by most all of the fly fisherman out there. I guess the reason the fly is so popular is the white wing post which makes it so easy to see. Another feature is the fact it float really high in the water. The size 14 is my choice because it seems to fit the areas I fish most. I have landed trout on this fly when nothing else would produce. So there you have it with my favorite gift for this year, what was yours? I hope everyone had a great Christmas. Happy New Year!!!!
