Understanding and adapting to current flow is vital in nymph fishing for stream trout.

During early season nymph fishing, small adjustments — ones designed to present flies in slightly different currents — can often translate into big results.

The basics of nymph fishing call for a fly (or multiple flies) to presented in an upstream direction. Nymphs, often weighted with bead heads, lead (or lead-free) wire wraps, split shot added to the leader, or a combination of all of these, get the flies down to where the fish are.
