Podcast: The Seven Deadly Sins of Nymph Fishing, with Josh Nugent


[Interview starts at 38:38]

Josh Nugent of Out Fly Fishing in Calgary has been doing a series of “Seven Deadly Sins” podcasts with me over the past couple of years, and this one is chock-full of great advice. Josh is a very preceptive angler and thinks deeply about how flies behave in the water and how trout react to them. In the interview, we go off on a number of tangents—all interesting and all about nymph fishing—and all of them with great advice on how to make your indicator-nymphing game more fun and productive.
