What would everyone recommend as a good book for nymphing? I'm looking for something that deals with a lot of the technical aspects, i.e. pattern selection, rigging techniques, drift management, etc.

I thought about getting a book on nymphing... Then I realized that no one has the same exact style. I just surf youtube and try to adapt the styles I want to try.

Everyone can name their favorite fly book, but it probably isn't a nymphing book. and my explanation could be why. fwiw

Active Nympinh - Rich Ostoff is the author, I think. I started employing some of his methods this past year with great success. But like gochs I usually just combine methods until I hit on something.

Gary Borger has some good ones on nymphing. But I got a dvd and books of Joe Humphrey's on nymphing that I liked better.
Also Gary Lafontaine and J. Dennis books and dvd's are very helpfull.

Certainly note worthy. The Tully TU had him out last year and I believe it might have been an excellent presentation, had it not been held in a gymnasium which turned out to be the worlds best echo chamber. Is there a release date for the book?

They're trying for fall of '11, but like LRSa said it will probably be Spring '12.
