Fly Fishing
with Kids!

Here at Current Fly Fishing, we promote youth fly fishing. Kids are spending more and more time in front of a screen these days and we can all agree that they should be spending more of that time outside. It’s never too early to put a fishing rod in their hands however when it comes to fly fishing we like to start kids around 10 years old. Having an interest in fishing before we introduce them to a fly rod certainly helps. We have taught countless numbers of young people to fly fish and are looking forward to getting your kids out on the water soon.

European Style Nymphing (ESN)

Tight line Nymphing

ESN or Tight line Nymphing is a technique that has been around for a long time, recently it has grown in popularity among anglers for fishing nymph flies ( flies that sink ). There are a few things that set ESN apart from other types of fly fishing but in summary, the idea is that a heavy fly presented on a light line sinks faster and drifts more accurately than one attached to an indicator or bobber. The fact is that it works really well in fast-moving freestone rivers like the Truckee and East Walker. Most of the large fish we’re catching on these rivers are brought to the net using the ESN setup. It’s not hard to do, with a little coaching you’ll be tight-lining in no time.  Be sure to check out our blog post to see our recommended rigging and leader recipe.
