So back from my 5th outting on the dodder and yet again, fishless. Can anyone give me advice on fishing a nymph as I couldl well be fishing it wrong.
Method I have been using is casting the nymph up stream and letting the current take it down. i've been trying pools under weirs, after fast flows of water, under trees, all the usual little features.
The nymph I was using today looked somthing very similar to the attached pic. Was a bead head pheasant tail. Also tried a hairs ear but alas....
Also, it tends wo have a good bit of weed on it from being dragged alont the bottom, any way of stopping this?
