The Barbless Czech Nymph Selection.
Czech Nymph fishing is a style of nymph fishing practised by keeping in close contact with the flies at close range, generally in faster riffles (so you can get closer to the fish) just under the rod tip. In most cases there is no fly line outside of the reel and a Czech indicator/8m leader is used. This gives you an enhanced feel for the flies as they are drifting along the river bed.
Czech nymphs are weighted flies tied on grub hooks to imitate fresh water shrimps/scuds. A typical characteristic of a Czech nymph fly is the slim profile (to allow it to sink quickly), a back covered with foil/latex and a mono rib.
How to fish our Czech Nymph Selection:
Using either a specialist Czech Leader (or a short indicator) tie a length of tippet roughly equivalent to the depth of the water you will be fishing. To this add a sort section (about 12" long) tied with a 3-turn water knot, this will provide you a 6" dropper. To the point, tie in one of the heavy ceramic flies, and to the dropper use one of the Czech Nymphs.
Here we have a selection of 24 Czech Nymphs, eight different patterns, see below for hook sizes and weights.
Each of the flies in the Barbless Czech Nymph Selection can now be bought individually. please click on the links below to purchase the flies individually (or click the "Add to Cart" button above to buy the selection at a discounted price).
Our Czech Nymph selection is made up of 2 distinct type of flies. Descriptions, and links to the individual flies which make up this selection can be found below:
Heavy Ceramic Nymphs:
These flies are designed to be the point fly in a Czech Nymph setup. We fish these with our 8m Indicator Leader, for super sensitivity and stealth! They are made with lead wire which is then coated with a polymerized UV cure to provide their hard ceramic shell, then topped off with a tungsten bead.. The surface of the body is totally smooth, this feature allows them to sink faster and deeper than any other nymphs. Ceramic flies account for lots of fish on the continent because their body is made of alternate clear and dark rings which imitate the caddis and mayflies larvas found in UK rivers.
We supply these heavy ceramic Czech nymphs in two sizes (14's & 16's), their tungsten equivalents are:
- Size 14 Tungsten Ceramic = 0.8mm Lead Wire = 0.31g = 3.5mm Tungsten Bead
- Size 16 Tungsten Ceramic = 0.6mm Lead Wire = 0.25g = 3.0mm Tungsten Bead
