Editorial Reviews

Review

'I cannot tell you how impressed I am with George Daniel's latest book... I am struck not just at the author's all encompassing knowledge of the milieu of nymphing, but also his ability to put into words the often subtle nuances of the method. Clearly, though I've never spent time on the water with the man, he must possess some Houdini-type fishing prowess!... To be fair, this title will likely not be for everyone, most particularly those who are perfectly happy fishing a brace of Copper John's beneath a tennis ball-sized indicator in every situation they encounter. Frankly, those people are to be envied; but for the rest of us compulsive types who want to know all the whys, and hows, Dynamic Nymphing is "must" reading...". Fly Fisherman magazine, USA

Excellent content and photography departs from the rudimentary sketches we see so often in explaining fly fishing techniques. Descriptive text by each photo ensures understanding and show actual rod, line, and fly position to achieve mastery of these techniques. Explains rod preference, lines and leader set up, short-line and long-line tactics, and flies employed to achieve success. Is written, and for the first time, in a manner comfortable to the American fly fisherman learning to add some new techniques to their arsenal. Material is presented in a comfortable way making one realize this isn't a complete change to what you already know, but rather some adjustments that will take your techniques to the next level. (i.e. maybe out fish your buddies, lol) This book is full of goodies that took me years to "find out", but more importantly describes them in a language I wish I would have heard (and more readily understood) years ago. Bravo George, you have demystified these techniques and made them very understandable to the reader. I highly recommend this book! It has earned "coffee table" status in my home....

This book is comprehensive, and full of information. It doesn't solely focus on competition techniques, so people can't knock on that aspect. It shows you how to use split shot and indicators to improve your fishing. It also shares the fly boxes of one of the best competition anglers in the United States. It has detailed instructions on each aspect of the techniques that he shares. He doesn't hold back his knowledge. You should buy this book, you won't be disappointed. The cool thing is, it is one of those books that advanced anglers will learn from. I consider myself an expert at Euro Nymphing, George is better than I am, and I learned a lot from this book.

A definitive work on "european" style nymph fishing techniques. In contrast to the more familiar and imitative patterns commonly tied and used by most nymph fishermen in the US,the flies are virtually ALL bead heads;often with additional weight. They are designed to plummet to the bottom where they are fished like artificial bait, bumped along the bottom and fished below the rod tip for the most part. Overall the book is narrow in scope but that is by intention and the author does an excellent job advocating and explaining his preferred method.

The technique is similar to the "outrigger" high rod technique developed by Chuck Fothergill on the Roaring Fork near Aspen, Colorado. Fothergill used multiple weights (wrap- around lead spaced along the leader)whereas the fly or flies are weighted in the European (Czech,Polish,French,and UK )techniques. Unfortunately,the author fails to even mention Fothergill,s name or to give him any credit for a similar approach, -one as equally innovative in it's day- as the so-called "Czech" technique presently the rage.Charles Brooks also used a similar
method fishing in heavily weighted stonefly nymphs on the big waters in Montana. Again,no mention or credit to Brooks for his contribution to nymph fishing techniques.I could not find either man's name in the index.

There is a lot of reference made to angling competition amongst teams from the US and other countries,a practice with which I have a philosophical problem. I do not think that formal competitions are appropriate in fly fishing nor are they good for the sport but that is just my view. Others may feel differently of course.

I found a lot of good and useful information in the book,even though I do not buy
into the whole package advocated by the author.

Dynamic Nymphing has interesting moments, good photography and acceptable writing, but the content is somewhat thin given the state-of-the-art in 2011. While the international selection of techniques is touted even on the cover, the discussion is very cursory and the endless sequences of photos are not very helpful. More instructional sketches and less photos would have been better. If one reads Odier's book "Swimming Nymphs" or Krivanec's recent book on Czech nymphing, you will get a better understanding of the general techniques. This is the trouble with this kind of book - while the topic is timely and interesting, if the content is not thorough, well-researched2 and really novel (even to NA readers), it will miss the mark with the advanced anglers at whom it is aimed. How about references or a bibliography? None. How about Chuck Fothergill's chapter from "Master's on the Nymph"? Missing; not even mentioned in passing. Beautiful pictures from Portugal, Eastern Europe etc - no reference or context given. Given the advertisements for the book, I find it to fall a bit short. Rating: C.

I just finished reading Dynamic Nymphing. It is a good book well written with excellent photgraphs. This is not a beginners instructional manuel on nymph fishing. I have been nymphing for many years and found much new information detailing nymphing techniques which were very insightful. The section on fly patterns listed dozens of new and interesting patterns, with the recipe, I am anxious to tie. The photographs of the individual flies were very good. It is a well made book that will be useful to the veteran nymph fisher.
