there is a spot at a local stream where fish like to hold in. its great dry fly water good streamer water but im having trouble nymphing it. i would say it is atleast 4 ft deep maybe 8 in some spots but there is no real curent to carry the fly. almost like a pond. how would you nymph something like this?

thanks marc.

Dry dropper with a curly indicator keeping your mind just ahead of the lack of current and patience. Even pond water moves, but you can't see it on the surface. Cast upstream, the under current will sweep the nymph to the bank but the dry will stay inside a bit ahead so don't let you rod tip lag. Weight in the nymph I would make sure not to over weight it.

Give it a try, pond water is a challenge.

Why would you use a curly indicator in a slow water pool dry dropper situation?

Yea I wondered that too. I was going to suggest a curly before I read wetnet's post, but doesnt the dry fly do what the curly is intended to do?

Sorry I caught the error. Not a Dry dropper but a small dropper dropper with the curly. Two droppers. I apologize. A nymph fisherman with dry flies on the brain who would have thunk it?

I would use a curly pretty much just for me in slower deep water water, no more than hip high so take it for what it's worth. Sorry for the mistype.
