Whenever we post or host a Facebook Live about Euro-nymphing, someone invariably ask, “What about fishing a dry fly?” The long, soft rods designed for the technique mean that you have to think of both your rigging and your casting differently. In the video above, Deschutes River guide Evan Unti shows how he rigs up a dry fly (hint: you need the weight of a small nymph) and how he casts to avoid tangles. The part? It’s very simple.

I use a similar technique salmon fishing, commoning refered to as circle casting or tension casting. It works essentially the same way execpt with much more line and body action. I guess all this relates back to the basic spey casting motion.
