I will have to read that book you mention, it has been recommended to me in the past. I don't believe it was you who mentioned induced take to me the first time (I think it was a thread regarding midges I started). None the less, its a great technique and it is how I always fish a midge or nymph....it costs nothing. if a dead drift is not triggering a strike or the water column is not read properly....I do it all the time

Paulson.......in that book he states that it's the movement of the fly contrary to everything else that is floating by at the same speed , that allows the fish to spot the fly and pick it out of everything else. He advocates for a method he calls the sudden inch , it goes like this . he suggests that you make the fly move slightly when you mend your line and then go back to dead drift and each time you mend make the fly move slightly.

Good point, I have always been taught to wiggle the rod tip to give the nymph some lively hood.

I never thought to look till you brought that up, but I found this video:

And by paying attention to what is floating around the nymphs during the whole emergence stage, you're right. I had never though of that beyond the "wiggle." Watching those movements is going to have my trying out how to mimic them in the water. I was particularly interested in the emergence stage and the spinner stage, notice the ripples on top of the water that would make it stand out against its surroundings.

Good stuff, thanks osprey

Thank you for the discussion and getting me curious! I am still dumbfounded I never though to research this topic more. Reading more on midges makes it even more interesting and informative. Better yet, I'm going to start keeping my index finger on the fly line to create that movement with out introducing slack into my line. Or, I could try my index and middle finger with the line routed in between them and use a flicking motion with both fingers. This is going to be a good weekend!

I can assume but I won't because its an educated guess. I'm right there with you.

Don't let it overwhelm you , one thing you have to keep in mind is that you need to spend more time just sitting and watching , observing what the fish , bugs and water are doing , at first ..... and don't ever think you've got it all cause you will be humbled by It. You bring back something new from every trip.

Excellent advice, I was getting excited there! I do agree, the first thing I TRY to do is just watch the stream, I am usually too ansty. Either way I learn, but usually the hard way. I will be out this weekend (finally) so I will see what happens!
