Bamboo color. Built to FIPS Mouche standards, but designed to simply catch fish, the Mastery Competition Nymph line is as simple as it gets: 80 feet of level line, in either a floating or an intermediate density. It doesn't matter if you're in an international competition, or just trying to outdo yourself, the Competition Nymph line will perform, fish after fish. Specifically designed for European-style nymphing, if you're looking for the thinnest, most sensitive line available, look no further.
Ultra-thin level-line design for premium performance and sensitivity
For use with rods 0- through 5-weight
Meets FIPS Mouche competition specifications
For use in moderate and cold climates

In their two previous films, Modern Nymphing, and Modern Nymphing Elevated, Devin Olsen and Lance Egan shared European inspired nymphing methods, which have brought them success in competitions within the United States and around the world. With Gilbert Rowley capturing their Modern Nymphing magic on camera, these films have introduced thousands of anglers to techniques which have helped them increase their success and enjoyment on the water.
Modern Nymphing techniques are incredibly effective for catching trout in diverse areas of a river. However, rivers are complex environments with a variety of different water types. Yet, many anglers tend to focus only on obvious pools and simple runs, ignoring the additional opportunities available to them if they were to adapt their fishing to target more of the water types they encounter.
In this new film, Devin and Lance break down rivers into common water types including pools, riffles, runs, pocket water, glides, bank-side lies, eddies, etc. Each water type has unique characteristics that demand the use of different fishing methods. Devin and Lance provide strategies for selecting the most effective rigs and techniques for each water type. By applying the information provided in this video, fly anglers will be capable of adapting their fishing strategy to find success in a myriad of water types rather than fishing only the most obvious locations with the most common methods.
This fly was made popular here in the United States after our national team came back from the world championships in Tasmania. We have thoroughly tested it here, and our trout like it just as much as the Southern Hemisphere trout do. Equipped with an oversized tungsten bead, soft hackle CDC collar, hare's ear body and an orange tag.
After not finding the very best leader building material possible, one was created specifically with euro-style nymphing in mind. Stiff to help turn over flies but not too stiff to still maintain feel, abrasion resistant, straightens very well, and camo colored for close approaches. This might be the last leader material you'll ever need.
Absolute Tippet is made with proprietary co-polymer blends that are designed to drastically reduce water absorption while maintaining an optimal suppleness for high knot strength. Absolute nylon leaders and tippet have a 29% higher wet knot strength compared to SA's previous material and up to 40% higher wet knot strength when compared to competitors.
Designed for use with Euro-style nymphing rigs
Low memory, high abrasion resistance, maximum knot strength
Green, white, and orange alternates every 10 inches
