Cheeseman Canyon meets Euro Nymphing and two of our favorite people.
There’s no question that Euro Nymphing has gained quite a bit of popularity over the past several years. With some similarities to tight line nymphing, euro nymphing sheds the shackles of the modern bobber and relies on a direct connection to the flies. This technique allows you to fish a variety of water types not easily fished with a western indicator rig. With that in mind, we tagged along with Umpqua’s own Russell Miller (Team USA Competitive Angler, Director of Marketing at Umpqua) to enjoy a little bit of European nymph fishing in Cheesman Canyon.
