An excellent book,

"Plain and simple, this is an excellent book. Concise, to the point and well written. It has changed my nymphing game completely. I usually don't refute other reviewers, but I disagree with the prior review regarding stillwater nymphing. Yes, this is directed to stream nymphing which seems reasonable as this likely covers 95% of anglers who nymph. I also think that it is a gross exaggeration to label this as a romantic account of the authors travels. Anyone who has fished in varied locations knows how water can change dramatically - streams from PA, to CO to Europe all have vastly different topography thus necessitating different approaches. Hence... Dynamic Nymphing - a simple, straightforward strategy to not only catching more fish but also gaining a better understanding of how and why we do what we do. This book is fantastic, read it and you won't be sorry."

Streams only...,

By: DrBilly

"As usual to Orvis, treatment of nymphing in this book is limited to the challenges of moving water (streams). For those of us who fish nymphs in Stillwater, this book must be either properly interpreted or avoided altogether. The author is more interested in talking about his world travels than about general nymphing techniques. Thus the value of this book is questionable to those who are not interested in the romance of the traveler."

Excellent Nymphing Book,

"George Daniel explains and clearly illustrates some very novel nymphing techniques. Many of the techniques he teaches is removing the strike indicator, resulting in more feel and less missed strikes. Awesome book!"
