This week’s Master Class is about fishing nymphs with droppers when trout are not feeding on the surface but also aren’t holding in deep runs. This is a great technique when there is a sparse hatch but trout won’t take a dry fly. At times, fishing a nymph in the middle of the water column is more effective than getting the fly right on the bottom. As usual, Dave and Amelia Jensen show us some spectacular views of trout feeding. And notice how Dave misses a bunch of strikes at the end—it happens even to the experts!
